Alien Hatcher Dan O'Bannon Dies


More sad passings: Sci-fi and horror screenwriting maestro Dan O'Bannon died in L.A. at age 63. Best known for scripting the Star Beast screenplay that went on to become Alien, he was also the guy who turned Philip K. Dick's We Can Remember It For You Wholesale into Total Recall and wrote and directed 2005's The Return of the Living Dead. His last credited project (for characters he created) is for the Ridley Scott-directed Alien prequel set for a 2011 release. Hatches to hatches, dust to dust. [Empire]
