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.

I don't know these actors. I think thats a good thing. Slowly I'm getting really excited. I hope they post photos from the set.

Well its getting intresting now..... more and more Names will come out and then maybe we can catch some leaked images from set... we can only wish ;)

Ridley does have a habbit for going for unknown or not as well known names, but he will throw in a few more well known name and the odd A List i am sure of it, i cant see Fassbender being the only A-List in this movie...  and i think he would be getting a few more up and comming but known stars too.. Katherine Waterston being the first of such to be Cast.

Also i think part of the deal with Australia and New Zealand is to cast some people from those countries but i think a lot of that commitment is towards Production Crew
