John Landgraf, a famous television producer, previews Noah Hawley’s role in the next Alien TV series. The series has a lot of twists and turns in store.
TV Director Noah Hawley will create an Alien TV series for FX, it has been revealed. With lauded results, Hawley has built a name for himself tackling iconic franchises like Fargo and X-Legion Men’s for the cable channel.
There is currently no release date for FX’s Alien, as production does not begin until next year.
Alien, originally directed by Ridley Scott and released in 1979, is widely regarded as one of the finest and most important science fiction/horror films of all time. The Alien’s franchise has steadily dwindled over the years.
Scott’s return to direct the prequel picture Prometheus in 2012 was the catalyst for the franchise’s revival. Unfortunately, due to the disappointing box office performance of Alien: Covenant in 2017, 20th Century Fox decided to put preparations for a sequel on hold.
Following Disney’s takeover of Fox in 2019, fans were left wondering whether or when the Xenomorphs might appear in another Alien film, according to the published article on the Screen Rant website.
FX chairman John Landgraf disclosed a lot about FX’s forthcoming slate of programs during a discussion at the Television Critics Association.
Landgraf detailed the new Alien show’s chronology, confirming that Sigourney Weaver’s Ellen Ripley will not appear.
They now know more about Noah Hawley’s forthcoming Alien science-fiction series. While speaking about the project at the Television Critics Association press tour, FX boss John Landgraf spilled some juicy xenomorph details, and it’s terrible news for Ripley lovers.
Ellen Ripley, who played Ellen Ripley in the Alien film, will not be featured in the TV series, which is set on Earth rather than in the deep frigid expanse of space and takes place decades before the Nostromo first encountered that accursed killer egg.
It is the first story in the Alien franchise that takes place on earth before Ripley. It takes place on the planet at the conclusion of the century we are now living around 70 years from now according to Landgraf as posted on the Digital Fax webpage.
