So far, the only Alien
project that’s officially in active development is the recently announced FX on Hulu
series that’s being shepherded by the team of Ridley Scott
and Noah Hawley
. All we know is that it’ll be the first entry to be set on Earth, which instantly presents a whole host of fresh storytelling opportunities, and over the years, Scott and Hawley have both proven themselves more than capable of putting interesting spins on familiar genres.
However, the rumor mill has continued to churn lately surrounding the theatrical arm of the sci-fi franchise. The last concrete update we had from Scott himself came back in September when the Alien
and Covenant director revealed that another new movie was in the works, but it hasn’t been made clear whether he’s still planning to make it, or if the TV show has taken precedence.
