The new and confirmed Hulu exclusive ‘Alien’ movie has everything going right with it at the moment. 20th-Century Studios has roped in “Evil Dead” director Fede Alvarez and Ridley Scott as the producer of the movie. Ridley Scott is the director of the first “Alien” movie. The movie is already generating a lot of buzz in the public. Variety has confirmed the news of the movie.
Is It A Sequel To The Original “Alien” Movie?
The new Alien movie will not follow the past Alien movie sequels or spinoffs. The first “Alien” film follows the crew of a spacecraft as they encounter a violent alien. Tom Skerritt, Sigourney Weaver among others appeared in the science fiction horror thriller. The popularity of “Aliens” (1986), “Alien 3” (1992), and “Alien Resurrection” (1997), as well as the “Alien vs. Predator” crossover, prompted sequels and spinoffs. On the other hand, Alvarez’s concept is a fresh take on the genre, and it will be unconnected from the events of the first three “Alien” films.
Following the acquisition of 21st Century Fox in 2019, The Walt Disney Company bought several 20th Century Studios properties, including Alien. President of 20th Century Studios, Steve Absell, recently discussed the studio’s ambitions for Hulu. Hulu is majorly owned by Disney.
More Originals To Come From 20th-Century Studios and Hulu
“It’s a mix. To meet the volume that we are looking at — which is, by 2023, 10-plus movies just for streaming – it’s going to be a combination of originals in those genres. And coolest of all for fans, we get to find bold takes on beloved Fox properties,” Steve said.
Talking about the director of the movie Fede Alvarez, he is well known for his Don’t Breathe in 2016 and the Evil Dead remake in 2013, both of which he wrote alongside Rodo Sayagues. More recently, Alvarez and Sayagues authored the story for Netflix’s 2022 Texas Chainsaw Massacre sequel, which Chris Thomas Devlin developed into a screenplay and directed by David Blue Garcia. Meanwhile, the movie currently doesn’t have any release date assigned to it.
