Alien: Resurrection script
Synopsis: Two hundred years have passed since Ellen Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) died on Fiorina 161. Aboard the medical research vessel USM Auriga, a team of scientists clone Ripley from her extracted DNA and removes the alien Queen embryo which was growing inside her at the time of her death.

WREN:

Careful ... ready with the amnio...

Gediman finishes cutting. Another man steps in with a clamp. Sets it.

Pulls apart the chest.

GEDIMAN:

There she is...

He says it like he's found a lost kitten. He reaches in an pulls out a

sleeping, fetal but nearly ready to burst ALIEN. Others work at

severing umbilical threads that tie it to Ripley's chest.

GEDIMAN:

Here we go.

He holds it up and others step in with the amnio, a sort of incubator

filled with amniotic fluid.

The alien SCREAMS, its tiny mouth full with teeth, and wriggles out of

his grasp.

WREN:

Watch it!

Everybody panics -- but before the thing can get completely away from

him, Gediman grabs it and sticks it in the amnio. Someone shuts the

top rapidly.

Everybody looks at each other for a moment.

GEDIMAN:

Well ...

WREN:

The host?

A surgeon looks at Ripley's readings.

SURGEON:

Doing fine.

Gediman looks at Wren, hopefully. Wren nods.

WREN:

Sew her back up.

Gediman and the surgeon get to work, as the others carefully remove the

alien.

GEDIMAN:

Well, that went as well as could be expected--

Ripley's hand LASHES OUT, GRABS the surgeon's forearm. He yells in

pain as her fingers dig into him, the others scramble knocking things

over and we HEAR HIS BONE CRACKING.

SMASH CUT TO:

INT. RIPLEY'S CELL

Sudden stillness.

Ripley crouches in the middle of a small, dark chamber. She's wide

eyed, staring straight ahead in a state of near catatonia. Hair tangled

and wild. But at least she's not so blue as before.

The only light on her comes from directly above, from a thick pane of

glass in the center of the ceiling.
