New Alien TV Series in the works at FX - Noah Hawley, Ridley Scott

This will most likely be on Disney+ under Star. Noah Hawley, Ridley Scott both involved.

"The series is billed as being the first Alien story set on Earth, and will blend the timeless horror of the original 1979 movie and the non-stop action of the 1986 James Cameron-directed second"

"The series is billed as being the first Alien story set on Earth,..."

Ugh!
This evoking AvP(oo) [especially Wrecked-quiem] for me

Maybe Hawley can do the '79 creepy but the '86 action ... we'll see

Noah Hawley Updates Alien Series
Back in September 2020, Fargo showrunner Noah Hawley discussed the pitch he made FX Networks for an Alien miniseries and it apparently worked because, by the end of that year, the deal was done. Now we're learning more from Hawley about the upcoming series in an interview with Vanity Fair to promote his new novel Anthem, including a production update on the FX on Hulu series as well as some insight into the themes that the series will be taking a deep dive into over the course of its run.

Ridley Scott has revealed a pilot is being written for this series along with a bible of what transpires in 8-10 hours of the show.

from https://variety.com/2021/tv/global/blad ... 235117198/
News of an “Alien” series was first announced in December 2020. The show is being set up at cabler FX, with Noah Hawley attached as showrunner. FX boss John Landgraf described the project last year as “the first ‘Alien’ story set on Earth — and by blending both the timeless horror of the first ‘Alien’ film with the non-stop action of the second, it’s going to be a scary thrill ride that will blow people back in their seats.”
