Director Jean-Pierre Jeunet was offered to create a new cut of Alien: Resurrection for the Alien Quadrilogy DVD set.
“The special edition version you are going to watch is not a director’s cut, because the director’s cut was the version you watched in theaters in ’97. I remember I was very happy and proud about that, and it wasn’t necessary for me to make a director’s cut.”
