The upcoming Alien FX television series will reportedly combine the iconic horror aspects of Ridley Scott's original Alien (1979) and the action elements of James Cameron's sequel, Aliens (1986). Unlike both films however, the Alien series, directed by Noah Hawley will be the first instance where the Xenomorph plot setting takes place on Earth... in the near future. According to fansite AvPGalaxy, they got their hands on a production synopsis that describes the series as:

Set not too far into our future, it’s the first ‘Alien’ set on Earth — and 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.

They also report that filming is set to begin in March of next year in Thailand as well as potentially some parts of Eastern Europe.

The state of the Alien: Covenant sequel continues to remain uncertain.

So essentially ALIENS set on semi-futuristic Earth

Basically that's what I gather... Not totally sure how I feel about it. I think the Earth setting is a mistake. But we'll see how it plays out. If it's anything like HBO's Raised by Wolves I wouldn't mind it!

I personally think the series should have taken place after Alien 3 (2180s) if they wanted an earth setting but having set before Alien Covenant is a big mistake.

On a side note, isn't ALIENS already a horror movie, sure action horror but its still horror.

Exactly, I fear this plot line is going to muddy the waters of Prometheus and Alien: Covenant. We can only hope with Ridley on board as a producer that he can steer the storyline in a way to incorporate the elements and timelime of his prequels. Weyland had plenty of interest in exploring the Zeta Reticuli star system for years prior to Prometheus since funding the mission and building the ships would have taken some time to complete.

I hope this series explores more of that corporate angle and maybe what inspired Weyland to obsess over Aliens and Engineers. To neglect that fundamental aspect would be such a disservice to this franchise.

And yeah, Aliens was a suspense / action / horror flick but it's mostly known for its emphasis on action over the likes of Scott's original. But absolutely both are horror films.

Ya, not sure about the earth/setting but if they can pull it off then sure why not.

Raised By Wolves? No thanks

If they can make this better than the prequels then why not. We haven't had anything good for a long while in this franchise so if it can excel what we've had after Alien 3 then sure. To have Scott as a producer makes me worried since he might influence this a lot and in that case it might mean more android-crap compared to what what it would have been if he wouldn't have been involved. Hopefully someone can tell him no if he comes up with crappy ideas.

PraetorianMember2952 XPNov-21-2021 9:04 PM

A lot of Scotts ideas were hindered by 20th Century Fox and it was 20th Century Fox that forced a direct xenomorph connection into Prometheus 2/Alien Covenant

NeomorphMember1551 XPDec-01-2021 2:25 AM

Xenotaris: Ya that's what I've heard too. My problem is how he dealt with that, by making the angry android its creator. Covenant could have done without the monster and just have the Neomorph and maybe other monsters too, but Fox messed up. He seems too stuck on the android tale, so that's why I'm worried if he would have a heavy influence in the next Alien-project.

Xenotaris

PraetorianMember2952 XPDec-01-2021 5:04 AM

I think the xenomorph should have been held off until Prometheus 3 and that the Engineers should have made the xenomorphs. Not sure if I would out right replace the xenomorph since that would be like replacing Godzilla with a different kaiju
