Alien: Romulus (working title), the upcoming new Alien movie by Fede Alvarez begins filming this weekend and 20th Century Studios recently briefed us on a small plot synopsis for the film. While that synopsis didn't really reveal much by way of any groundbreaking information, recent casting auditions and details have surfaced online - leaking some spoilers and additional plot / character information!

Starting things off, not long ago 3 audition videos leaked online detailing one major setting for the film - an abandoned Weyland-Yutani vessel. The videos have since been taken down, but descriptions of what the videos contained remain online thanks to the folks over at AvPGalaxy:

The audition videos – all for a character called Bjorn – contain three different scenes. The first scene finds Bjorn approached by two characters, Rain and her android “brother” Andy. Bjorn tells Rain that he’s discovered an abandoned Weyland-Yutani ship and wants to use Andy to gain access, as Andy was manufactured by the Company.

The second scene finds Andy and Bjorn alone, presumably aboard the previously mentioned Weyland-Yutani ship. Bjorn is clearly disturbed by the situation, and Andy is attempting to calm the spooked Bjorn by telling him a joke. Bjorn clearly isn’t fond of Rain’s synthetic brother, telling Andy that he can’t wait to never see him again.

The third and final scene sees Bjorn saving another character from what I presume to be a facehugger. The dialogue seems to revolve around whether it had time to finish the implantation. Bjorn is clearly in a very agitated state by this point and attempts to escape, but Andy blocks his way. Bjorn appears to shoot Andy.

Following on from that exciting leak, additional casting updates have been announced! Deadline revealed that Isabela Merced has been cast in the upcoming Alien film. Character details for Isabela have yet to be revealed.

The Hollywood Reporter have also announced that David Jonsson, Archie Renaux, Spike Fearn and Aileen Wu have also been cast in the Fede Alvarez Alien movie, again with unknown character details.

The casting updates coincide with the film's current plot synopsis which involves a group of young people on a distant world, who find themselves in a confrontation with the most terrifying life form in the universe.

As new details emerge we'll keep you posted!

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.

Looking into the Casting.... it would seem they are going for the YOUNG like GHETTO kind of a Plot.... which may Attract more of the Current 15-30 Year Olds.

I wonder if there will be any Elements of Realism here or some Goofyness like we saw with THE PREDATOR!

Also the PLOT about a Group of Young Adults, who Discover a Abandoned W-Y Ship does remind me a LOT of the Many kinds of Horror Flick were you have College Students on SPRING BREAK who go for a Vacation and Discover a Abandoned Lodge... (or House or Warehouse or Boat etc) and they make a Horrific Discovery.

But like in SPACE...... which could mean they encounter the W-Y Ship in Space in which case we are going to be seeing a ALIEN meets the 3rd Act of Alien Covenant again!

Looking into the Casting it seems that a few could be Infected but some only had a Face Hugger on for Short Period of Time (Alien Covenant showed it does not take long to become Infected). And so they may take a Unsuspected Victim back to their Ship and then things go to POT!

Then we have ANDY the Synthetic..  which seems he could become the Antagonist... is he the ONE who knew what they was getting into and a SLEEPER agent who takes these Young People to where the SHIP is knowing they will become Infected... and all of this is done with the W-Y Knowledge?

Sounds too close to a ALIEN Re-Hash... but maybe thats the Plan a Soft-Retcon of Sorts for the Newer Generation?

The TV Series Plot seems more Interesting apart from being set like 25 Years before ALIEN rather than say 25 Years after ALIENS.

I'm still disapointed that they dropped the alphabetical order names for Androids
