The team behind the upcoming Alien TV series being developed by Noah Hawley for FX and Hulu has hired Production Designer Andy Nicholson to lend their skills to the series' production! Andy Nicholson has a fairly impressive resume of recent projects he's provided his skills to including Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, Assassin’s Creed and Gravity to name a few.

As reported by news outlet The Ronin:

The Ronin can exclusively reveal a nifty department head hiring for the upcoming Alien series on FX that hails from showrunner Noah Hawley with Ridley Scott‘s involvement via his production company Scott Free. We’ve been able to confirm that production Designer Andy Nicholson has been tasked for the Earthbound prequel series.

The Alien TV series is currently in pre-production with cameras set to start rolling later this year! The series will take place on Earth in the "not-too-distant" future and will address concepts relating to Transhumanism and the blending of organic consciousness into Synthetic / Robot bodies - with Aliens, of course.

As new details arrive we'll be sure to keep you updated!

I would be more excited if the plot didn't deviated away from what made ALIEN, you know ALIEN. 

If I could sit down and talk to Noah Hawley, I would ask him this simple question. Has ever seen an ALIEN movie? because I don't think he ever had or saw the ones that most fans would consider the definitive ALIEN movie.

I mean sure, Synthetics have been a part of ALIEN since the beginning but that is just it, they were a part not the whole. The Story is supposed to resolve around the ALIEN, not the Android!

I'm fine with the franchise expanding and including different things, but I'm worried that this will also have too much of the android-story in it. Another AI-tale would make the franchise worse, I believe. This is what happened with the prequels when they became a David-story.

This isn't to say that they got to have Xenos in every scene, but please focus on the human story and limit the android-part. No amount of Xenos will work if we don't care about the characters.

Of course the story needs a copius amount of human characters, thats a given. The xenos alone can't carry an Alien movie. What I was trying to say, the androids need to have a minimal role.

"the ones that most fans would consider the definitive ALIEN movie."

It really depends on what is meant by this? There are a LOT of Alien Fans across Generations who have Varried views on the Franchise.... from the POPCORN Perspective then ALIENS was the Bigger Hit, its what most remember when you mention ALIEN. The Movie was kind of the Perfect Alien Action Flick.....

We have since seen the ALIEN over and over in Various Platforms, that its something that is a BIT of a Poisoned Chalice.... as the Expectation is High and since ALIENS there have been more MISS than HITS...

The ALIEN Franchise is Synonymous with the Xenomorph and for many you cant have a ALIEN Movie or TV Series or any other related Format (Novel, Game, Comic) that has the ALIEN Prefix and NOT have the Xenomorph.

To a degree this is CORRECT... i mean AVP was ALIEN VS PREDATOR... not XVP as in Xeno vs Predator.... but unless they are Really Clever and can find a way to Uplift/Evolve the Xenomorph then i worry you cant have like 40%+ of a shows Screen Time related to them... before it gets Bland....

So you have to introduce other Aspects..... and some of these may NOT please every Fan but you can NEVER go and please everyone...

For me i think Ridley Scott had the RIGHT IDEA.... there is ONLY so much Face Hugging, Chest Bursting and Snarling that you can do before you have to EVOLVE the Beast..... But the BIGGEST thing i feel RS was Correct with is that Once you have seen the Xenomorph over and over, and KNOW as to HOW they was Created etc..... the BIGGER Question/Threat is WHO would Create such a THING and WHY?

This applies to WHO would TRY to Obtain a Specimen and WHAT would be their Ultimate Agenda... as its THIS which will give the Chest Burster some Legs so to speak.

The Xenomorph as the Ultimate Killer... is Questionable.... they are NO LONGER that Treat they were from ALIEN....   A simple Question.... Terminator vs Alien who would WIN?

As a Bio-Weapon the Xenomorph is Flawed vs other Options that a Advanced Humanoid Race could possess.  But the Xenomorph has the Potential as far as some of its Advantages so its a case of can you CONTROL them and HOW... could you Hybridize them, could you USE some of their Genetics for a Greater Purpose of Military Gain....

So its a CASE of WHO would look to achieve these as the Bigger Plot... and ULTIMATELY their Hubris would be that the Xenomorph can not be Controlled.

The Predators are called Yautja by the way.

Well you don't have to evolve the xenomorph to change the ALIEN movie format. You could play into more of the Weyland-Yutani Corporation storyline and their attempts to weaponize the xenomorphs or canonicalize the Union of People's Progression, the Three World Empire, and United America's interstellar cold war, with xenomorphs caught in the middle.

Big Dave you need to read the Alien RPG books they have done with some interesting things with the xenomorphs or more accurately interesting things with the black goo
