20th Century Fox



Fans of Michael Biehn's Corporal Hicks, rejoice.

The actor, along with Lance Henriksen as android Bishop, have just voiced a new audiobook based on an unused script by sci-fi great William Gibson.

Gibson wrote the treatment in 1987 as the potential follow-up to James Cameron's "Aliens," but 20th Century Fox wasn't happy with the results and it never came to pass.

And then we got David Fincher's ultra-bleak, much-hated "Alien 3" in 1992, which killed off everyone but Ripley (Sigourney Weaver).

Gibson’s unused script developed a cult following and now it's an audiobook called "Alien III." It's on Audible for $8.95.

"Alien" director Ridley Scott is working on even more prequels to his 1979 masterpiece (which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year), but a planned film that would have revived Hicks (to be directed by Neill Blomkamp) never happened.

Cyberpunk pioneer Gibson's next novel, "Agency," a sequel (and a prequel) to 2014's "The Peripheral," is due out next year.

A series based on "The Peripheral" is being developed by the creators of "Westworld" for Amazon.
