Father of cyberpunk William Gibson’s original script for Alien III, written in 1987 as a sequel to Aliens, never made it to our screens, although it went on to achieve cult status among fans as the third instalment that might have been after being leaked online. This terrifying, cinematic multicast dramatisation - directed by the multi-award-winning Dirk Maggs - is the chance to experience William Gibson’s untold story and its terrifying, claustrophobic and dark encounters between humans and aliens, as a completely immersive audio experience.
Need a sequel!

Awesome, but too short... However a must have!!!
I enjoyed this and recommend it for any real fan of Aliens who felt ripped off by the way they went with the Alien3 movie.
I saw a few excerpts of the comics that came out previously for this and thought they were ok. I have had this in a word file for years now, and always wondered why they never chose it as the follow up film. Obviously when you hear it, you will perhaps understand why, I won't spoil you, but some of the plot points and ideas didn't really work post Aliens (I think anyway) however the story is great, and however much they destroyed the build up from Aliens when they eventually chose the dramatically different script and made poor David Fincher's much maligned project instead.
This story does lend itself to this kind of production and I liked the way they did it, and as I mention first up, the length was too short I felt for something like this, but it is a film script after all, and with the return of Michael Biehn and Lance Henrickisen as their respective characters, it makes up in spades.
Well worth it I feel and makes you enjoy it because those two are there.
