Dread Central was pointed in the direction of a new official website that celebrates the genius of the late Dan O’Bannon today, and there’s no better place to celebrate the man’s legacy.
Dan himself was working on this when he died, and his wife, Diane, wanted to let fans know how much she and their son, Adam, appreciate the outpouring of affection and respect for Dan’s work since his passing last Thursday.
The site contains many interesting bits of O’Bannon information for fans of his work including info on the last script he was working on and a new zombie project that Dan had intended to direct, Dan O’Bannon’s Zombies: Fruit of the Tomb.
As most fans of H.P. Lovecraft already know, Dan was a life-long Lovecraft fan. Lovecraftian elements permeate Alien, and Dan adapted The Case of Charles Dexter Ward into 1992’s The Resurrected, which was the last film he directed. So, for the O’Bannon and Lovecraft fan, the site gives up-to-date information on Dan O’Bannon’s Necronomicon, which he had just finished after working on it on and off for over ten years.
Check out the site below by clicking on the image, and let the celebration of his life and work commence.
