Carlos Huante talks future of Alien: I think they're doing a TV show right now

With so much uncertainty surrounding the next Alien project Disney plan to pursue and with no concrete direction being suggested by official channels, we are left to grasp at any possible and probably leads. Although we learned recently that before Disney acquired Fox, that studio executive Emma Watts had shut down attempts by FX to create an Alien TV series, there is still a possibility that Disney will revive the project and adapt it for their upcoming Disney Plus streaming service. Of course, there is so much uncertainty currently, but a recent interview with Prometheus / Alien: Covenant concept artist Carlos Huante suggests the TV pilot might still be in production...

Speaking to HN Entertainment, Carlos discussed his work on Alien and if he has any insider knowledge regarding the future of the franchise now that it's positioned at Disney. Huante speaks fairly candidly and admits:

I have no idea where it’s going anymore. I think they’re doing a TV show or something right now. Nobody has called me about that even though I have no confidence that TV could pull something like that off I’d still like to work on it because that world is a fun place to play around in.

Suffice to say, not even Carlos seems to be in the loop as to where Alien is going next, but he seems to think a TV series is likely, despite his doubts that a TV series would be the right direction Alien should take. This could be due to all the news regarding the possibility that's been posted all over the web these past few months, but it's hard to say.

Are you with Carlos on this one? Is a TV series a bad idea? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!

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.

The fact that he uses the Present Continuous "I think they’re doing a TV show or something right now. " means to me that he knows something is happening right now, he is not sure only about the format or content. But they are doing something without him right now, dammit!

IMO, if they are doing something, they should call Carlos Huante too, the franchise can only benefit from his contribution.


TrilobiteMember8212 XPApr-14-2019 8:28 PM

Whatever. I have been tooting that horn for a long time. No one seems to GAF. We shall see.


XenomorphMember1303 XPApr-14-2019 8:34 PM

dk here's something that might cheer you up::


TrilobiteMember8212 XPApr-14-2019 8:37 PM

I have become pretty cynical over the past couple years. Thanks but seeing is believing. At least the IGN shorts gave something tangible.


XenomorphMember1303 XPApr-14-2019 8:47 PM

There is a huge anticipation for Alien Day!

They are obliged to offer something in return.

And they must be on a position of strength to give away the shorts before the Alien Day. Why not start streaming them on Alien Day?


TrilobiteMember8212 XPApr-14-2019 8:53 PM

There is good reason to believe a reveal but there is no obligation on "their" part.

I will not get hung up on something said in passing during an interview. 

Hope for the best but prepare for the worst. 

As Ellen said in Aliens- "I hope you are right. I really do."


XenomorphMember1303 XPApr-14-2019 9:03 PM

dk you remind me of below dialogue:

"You hear that?


No birds, no animals, no sounds. Nothing."


I'll keep the hope and the pressure until Alien Day. If the are so bloody careless to take advantage of this rare opportunity, then I won't GAF either.


TrilobiteMember8212 XPApr-14-2019 9:26 PM

You have my sympathies.


DeaconMember10324 XPApr-17-2019 5:22 PM

If something is in the works....   Then ALIEN DAY would be the ideal place to Tease or Confirm it.
