Screen Media and Legion M have acquired the North American rights to Alexandre O. Philippe’s “Memory: The Origins of Alien,” an exploration of the classic sci-fi film “Alien.”
“Memory: The Origins of Alien” unearths the largely untold origin story behind Ridley Scott’s cinematic masterpiece and reveals a treasure trove of never-before-seen materials from the archives of “Alien” creators Dan O’Bannon and H.R. Giger.
The never-before-seen materials include original story notes, rejected designs and storyboards, exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, and O’Bannon’s original 29 page script from 1971, titled “Memory.”
Screen Media and Legion M plan to release the film in theaters this summer, timed to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the theatrical release of “Alien.”
