And Richard E. Grant was originally in Alien3, but either the studio or producers insisted on Charles Dance for the role instead.


Was that in the Vincent Ward version? I would've loved to have seen that.


Fincher cast him. There's even some brief footage of him in character in that great documentary made for the boxset.

You mean Alien 3 was once going to have even more of the cast of Withnail & I than it already has?


I heard that Fincher was a big fan of Withnail and set out to do exactly that. That Fox went over his head and re-cast the part was one of the first problems between him and the studio that lead to such chaos throughout it's production.

As a devoted fan since its release, I am always open to more Withnail. But without having the benefit of seeing the final result, just on the drawing board Wthinail+Alien strikes me as a bridge too far, landing in some slag heap of Hollywood's 3rd dimension of death by committee reinvention, as.......

And God knows Ridley loves his green screen.

Saw the Spacey trailer last night and it’s a very funny experience, especially after being struck by how hard the studio was gunning for Oscar gold, particularly for Spacey himself
