    a good quote from a review

    "Blood Meridian on steroids. I found out about this book after watching Bone Tomahawk, and wasn't disappointed. I actually like this story better. Memorable characters, great dialog, and some gruesome, unforgettable scenes. Not to mention the prose, which is at times stunning, and at others, squick-inducing. I agree with Kurt Russell's assessment - Zahler is an incredible storyteller. High recommend for fans of grimdark westerns, horror, or Cormac McCarthy."

    i'll probably checkout the book at some point if riddles does in fact make this next

    We've already had one Ridley Scott/Cormac McCarthy production

    suffice to say, we sure as fuck don't need another

    Riddles does seem to be invested in this project quite a bit though, id' rather see him make something he's passionate about rather than merlin or queen and country, in the meantime they can get john logan writing and polishing his david movie.

    I'm of the opinion that Riddles is not necessary to make a good Alien film sequel, prequel, or spin off. I think right now he is our best bet at continuing the Engineer, Human, Android David thread that many of us are now invested in thanks to Covenant.

    There will always be Alien films. The only question is will they be Friday the 13th/70s era Plant of the Apes sequels? Or (forgive me Murp!) Blade Runner 2049 type sequels that truly expand the world and maintain, even improve upon the visual motifs.
