ALIENS Now A Radio Drama
When Ellen Ripley finally returns to Earth, she learns that the planet LV-426 — now called Acheron — has been colonized. But LV-426 is where Ripley and the crew of the Nostromo found the original Xenomorph — the killing machine known as the Alien.
Protected by the Colonial Marines, the colonists seek to terraform the storm-swept planet. Two such residents are Anne and Russell Jorden, seeking a fortune that eluded them on Earth. On Acheron, Anne gives birth to the colony's first newborn, Rebecca Jorden, also known as Newt. The wildcatters discover a vast, decaying spaceship. The horseshoe-shaped vessel is of particular interest to Weyland-Yutani, and may be the answer to their dreams. But what Anne and Russ find on board proves to be the stuff, not of dreams, but of nightmares.
Dirk Maggs, radio drama producer/director extraordinaire, brings together a cast laden with Hollywood talent for the full-cast radio drama production of Alien: River of Pain. Featuring Golden Globe and Saturn Award nominated actress Anna Friel (Pushing Daisies, Limitless), Colin Salmon (Alien Vs Predator, Arrow, Resident Evil, James Bond Tomorrow Never Dies, James Bond The World is Not Enough) and Philip Glenister (Kingdom of Heaven, Ashes to Ashes) and Alexander Siddig (Star Trek Deep Space 9, Game of Thrones, Clash of the Titans) this science fiction action-adventure is high octane, pulse pounding, edge of your seat entertainment. Try not to scream when one of the crew gets it!
