The Projection Booth:David Fincher’s Alien³

Special Guests: Lance Henriksen, Holt McCallany, Vincent Ward, John Fasano, Mark Verheiden

Guest Co-Host: Brad Jones

One of the most hated — and possibly most misunderstood — sequels around, David Fincher’s Alien³ had contentious production history. We’ll attempt to unwrap the behind-the-scenes turmoil and on-screen mayhem along with Brad Jones, the Cinema Snob.

We talked to Vincent Ward who brought the idea of “monks in space” to the game and the late John Fasano who worked on a few drafts of the Alien 3 script. We also spoke with actors Lance Henriksen and Holt McCallany about what it was like to be on the set. And, we’re joined by Mark Verheiden who wrote the incredible Dark Horse comics Alien series.
