Happy Alien Day! It’s April 26th, which is the day fans of Ridley Scott‘s original “Alien” and James Cameron‘s followup “Aliens” celebrate all things Xenomorph and Weyland-Yutani. This morning, filmmaker Fede Alvarez shared an image, seemingly confirming production on his upcoming “Alien: Romulus” film has begun.
David Jonsson (“Industry“), Archie Renaux (“Shadow and Bone“), Spike Fearn, and Aileen Wu have joined already announced star Cailee Spaeny in the project from 20th Century Studios.
Rodo Sayagues co wrote the script with Alvarez. Franchise creator Ridley Scott will produce the untitled “Alien” film via Scott Free, along with Michael Pruss.
This project is NOT the same as Noah Hawley‘s gestating earth-bound tv series set in the same universe.
Mary Anne Butler
We’ll let you know what else gets shared about this and other news.
Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now Nerdbot as Editor-In-Chief.
Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence.
Though she be but little, she is fierce.
