Alien: The Complete Illustrated Screenplay.
Alien: The Complete Illustrated Screenplay includes the script by Dan O'Bannon, foreword by Ridley Scott and is edited and introduced by Paul M. Sammon.
Publication of Alien: The Illustrated Screenplay marks the first time that the script has been made commercially available to the public.
The book features as a paperback and hardcover with colour stills from the film and edited by Paul M. Sammon who was a friend with Ridley Scott for 20 years.
Sammon's excellent introduction chronicles the history of the screenplay, from its genesis with Dan O'Bannon and Ron Shusett, through the later revisions by producers Walter Hill and David Giler. Sammon recognizes O'Bannon for devising the core plot, and credits Shusett for imagining the infamous chest-bursting scene.
