Not only is the documentary Memory: The Origins Of Alien headed our way in early 2019 for the 40th anniversary of Ridley Scott’s classic film, but we’ve learned that a making-of book is also on its way. It’s titled, well, The Making of ALIEN, written by J.W. Rinzler.
The book is now up for pre-order through Forbidden Planet.
“In 1979 a movie legend was born, as Twentieth Century-Fox and director Ridley Scott unleashed Alien and gave audiences around the world the scare of their lives.
To celebrate the movie’s fortieth anniversary, author J.W. Rinzler (The Making of Star Wars) tells the whole fascinating story of how Alien evolved from a simple idea in the mind of writer Dan O’Bannon into one of the most memorable sci-fi horror thrillers of all time.
With interviews with Ridley Scott and other key members of the original production crew, and featuring many never-before-seen photographs and artworks from the archives, The Making of Alien is the definitive work on this masterpiece of popular cinema.”
From Titan Books, The Making of ALIEN will arrive April 23, 2019.
