Back in July, Titan Book released author J.W. Rinzler‘s book The Making of Alien, and we've now learned that Rinzler plans to give James Cameron's action-packed sequel the same in-depth treatment next year.
Birth.Movies.Death details the book:
The Making of Aliens tells the complete story of how Cameron and Hurd, together with their immensely talented cast and crew, brought heroine Ellen Ripley back to the big screen—and upped the stakes by introducing a whole army of aliens for her to face.
Interviews with the cast and crew, alongside revealing photography and fascinating concept art, illustrate the film’s eventful journey from its beginnings as a sequel that nobody wanted to make through to its transformation into one of the highest-grossing blockbusters of the decade.
"After The Making of Alien, Fox asked if I'd write The Making of Aliens - and we were off," said Rinzler. "A great opportunity to write about one of the greatest sequels of all time - James Cameron's follow up to The Terminator! - with the same level of brilliant collaboration and innovative filmmaking. The result: action-packed joy. Our book strives to be a reflection of their achievement."
We currently don't have any images from the book to share with you, but we'll be sure to share some more details as soon as they become available! In the meantime, pick up The Making of Alien if you've yet to do so!
The hardback coffee table book will be published on April 21st, 2020, and will be priced at $50 and £35.
