Today we are thrilled to announce that Dane Hallett, one of the very talented concept artists who worked on Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant will once again be lending his talents to Fede Alvarez's Alien: Romulus and all things Giger-inspired! His Instagram post teased a number of exciting details, including an all-star team of artists (likely other familiar faces from Covenant), an impassioned director and a suggested R rating - we expect plenty of Alien mayhem!

We had the pleasure of interviewing Dane Hallett back in 2017 following his work on Alien: Covenant, you can read that here if you haven't already to get a sense of how passionate he is as not only an artist, but as an Alien fan too! Knowing that he's involved only increases our excitement for the project!

The banner image for this article is of one of Dane's recent pieces - unrelated to the upcoming Alien film, it's one of his personal works:

The future of Alien

The Alien franchise is taking a dramatic turn at 20th Century Studios, now owned by Disney. Currently there are two major Alien projects in development - a new Alien TV series by Noah Hawley and a new, stand-alone Alien movie being directed by Fede Alvarez. Both of which will be taking the franchise in a new direction - moving away from the Alien prequel direction Ridley Scott set out to pursue back in 2012.

Treat yourself to some Alien Merchandise!

Sure, why not? It wasn't his fault that Alien Covenant wasn't better than… average, maybe. Don't take this answer like I defend Prometheus because I'm not. Unfortunately, both prequels have things that they fail with. I like the picture. As with his pictures from alien Covenant I also like this one a lot. Maybe this one is better than those that I've seen from Covenant, I can't decide. Even though it hasn't got Giger-quality I like it.

Let's hope that Alien Romulus is at least as good as this picture, as far as quality goes. Alien Covenant wasn't as interesting as the art-work was. Put on a scale the art-work for AC was 3,5 out of 5, the movie was a 2 out of 5.


PraetorianMember4185 XPApr-28-2023 1:21 PM

another I can agree with you on is the Giger-quality. This newer xenomorph design looks like something straight out of a Resident Evil/Biohazard game


DeaconMember10416 XPApr-29-2023 8:01 AM

I think this is Good News, he and Matt Hatton did a lot of Work for Alien Covenant and a LOT of this was in Davids Notes/Drawings.... There was a LOT


DeaconMember10416 XPApr-29-2023 8:11 AM

To Continue........

There was a LOT in Alien Covenant because the Plot had a LOT of things to it that was something we NEVER saw in Depth (Various Experiments by David) which he (David) had been working on, which we only saw Briefly on Screen (works on the Wall and Organisms on the Tables etc).

For a Traditional ALIEN Movie then you DONT need a lot of Concept work as far as the Xenomorph, we all know what it looks like.... Unless the PLOT will have and give us something a LITTLE DIFFERENT.... but you always RUN the RISK of upsetting People if you CHANGE the Xenomorph too much.

Some people were NOT that Happy with the Xenomorph in Alien Covenant but it is Basically the same as in the Franchise, it is more Xenomorph than what we saw in Alien 3 and Alien R.....

We have NO idea as to the TIME-LINE of the Movie will it be set before ALIEN? set between ALIEN and ALIENS or set after ALIENS/ALIEN 3.. i doubt it would be set after ALIEN RESURRECTION...

With Ridley Scott attached to the Project its a case of WHAT kind of Input will he have on the Movie?  He had said that the Xenomorph has kind of been done to Death, but he had said you could EVOLVE IT and explore other TYPES of Procreation... the Problem is IF such changes are too much they could UPSET some people who may like the Xenomorph to remain as we have seen it.

So a LOT would depend on WHERE the Ship in Question is located and WHEN in the Time-Line.  But then also WHERE had the Eggs on the Ship came from.

I would love to see the Xenomorph Queen again in a new movie
