Disney is bringing the Alien Franchise to Hulu!
Noah Hawley (Legion) is developing the series!
What we know so far, which isn’t very much at all, is that the series will be set on Earth. And that’s a pretty interesting tidbit, as the franchise has previously always been set in space and has never taken place on Earth ( The horrible Alien vs Predator films don’t count).
FX teases, “Expect a scary thrill ride set not too far in the future here on Earth.”
“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.”
Ridley Scott is in talks to come on board as executive producer.
Hawley has been talking about pitching an Alien series to FX for a while now, but it seemed the project wasn’t actually going anywhere. Well Surprise, surprise kiddos!
This comes on the heels of Marvel Comics announcing an all-new Aliens comic book series set to debut in 2021.
