A New Alien Movie Has Been Greenlit For Hulu

A new Alien movie has been confirmed exclusively for Hulu, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

After 2017’s Alien: Covenant, it was expected that we wouldn’t ever see another Alien movie. But now it turns out that in addition to getting the upcoming TV series, we’re also getting a brand new movie exclusively for Hulu.

The Hollywood Reporter has stated that not much is known about the new movie except for the fact that it’ll be completely unconnected and unrelated to the previous Alien movies. The director of the movie, Fede Alvarez, pitched the idea to Ridley Scott in casual conversation years ago but nothing happened until recently, when Scott called Alvarez to ask whether he wanted to make the movie.

Fede Alvarez is known for his work on The Evil Dead remake from 2013 and Don’t Breathe, two beloved cult horror movies that share DNA with the franchise, so he’s quite the pick for a new Alien movie.

In addition to this we’re also getting a TV series from Noah Hawley that will be a prequel to the series, reportedly focusing on a blue collar space-trucker world that’ll show what happens when the Xenomorphs simply cannot be contained. To quote FX Chairman John Landgraf:

The Alien TV series is very grounded. I think Noah is very conscious of the fact that there’s a cinematic universe if you will. While it has some flexibility, the aesthetic that was established by Ridley Scott and i think continued by James Cameron is a part of that universe. So while I think you’ll see some inventiveness and originality that is uniquely Noah, I also think the show will feel like a part of the cinematic universe you’re familiar with in terms of Aliens.”
