Gibson's script for Alien 3 has always intrigued me, though it's completely insane and would have been unfilmable at the time.

Anyone who doesn’t accept that Alien 3 should have a wooden planet deserves Prometheus.

heh I always wondered how that would've worked


I've always imagined it would have been not dissimilar to the library world in (far future) Durham Red.

This idea that just because the unfilmed Alien 3 had a wooden planet and therefore would have been brilliant really confuses me.

It's just an idea (one I also happen to think is shite). It isn't a story. It isn't a script. It's one fecking idea and therefore can not be used to judge quality of mythical final product.

So many of you should know that.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

I read the script; saw the concept art. I liked it. That's all I can add.

You'll never get to meet any Clangers with that kind of Professor Yaffley attitude.

Thanks for posting that - never seen the production art before.

It's definitely an interesting idea, and would cool visually. With a wooden planet it's possible the Alien could go absolutely anywhere it wanted to, when it wanted to too. Wooden floors, walls, ceilings and doors would surely pose no match for one of those buggers, and once it figured that out I imagine it would constantly be brute-forcing its way to those lovely Monk brains

All efforts to repel it fail... then right at the end, just before it chomps into Ripley's head (possibly still bald in this version )it dies of deeply embedded splinters.
