New Alien FX series to begin filming in 2023. February 18, 2022
FX Networks head John Landrgaf told The Hollywood Reporter that the upcoming FX series, Alien, would begin shooting after the show’s creator, Noah Hawley, wrapped up shooting on Fargo season 5. He revealed a few details about the upcoming show.
“Alien takes place before Ripley. It’s the first story in the ‘Alien’ franchise that takes place on Earth. It takes place on our planet, near the end of this century we’re currently in — 70-odd years from now. All I can tell you is Ripley won’t be a part of it, and neither will any other characters — other than the alien itself. Noah has an incredible ability to both find a way of being faithful and showing fidelity to an original creation, like to the Coen Brothers [with Fargo] or to Ridley Scott’s movie and James Cameron’s follow up ‘Aliens,’ but also to bring something new that represents both an extension and reinvention of a franchise at the same time. He’s done a masterful job with ‘Alien’ as he did with ‘Fargo.’ There are some big surprises in store for the audience.”
“I hope [the audience] will feel like it’s faithful to the franchise they love but also a brave and original reinvention of that franchise. Setting it on Earth is really interesting. We have to think forward about the future of the planet in terms of the environment, governance, technology and create and design a version of the planet in the future … Noah wants to do that in a distinctive and original way.”
