RIP: Dan O'Bannon

Dan O'Bannon, screenwriter of Alien, Heavy Metal, and Total Recall, has passed away from an undisclosed illness at the age of 63. Sad news for sci-fi fans and filmmakers alike.

I recently did a breakdown of Dan's Alien script as a part of my aborted attempt at Scott Myers's 14 Scripts in 14 Days challenge. I will miss the universes he created and also his talent for making up technical jargon that sounds completely reasonable and unforced.

Rest in Peace
