Fresh off their Oscar win for their makeup effects work on Mad Max: Fury Road, Odd Studio has signed on to bring Ridley Scott's new Alien beings to life in Alien: Covenant! Speaking to, Damian Martin and Adam Johansen, owners and directors of Odd Studio revealed that their next project is in fact working on the Prometheus sequel, Alien: Covenant and that doing so is a dream come true for both of them:

"For their next gig, Martin and Johansen are sinking their teeth into another sequel to an iconic sci-fi franchise – Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant. The two are on creature effects for the film, which they describe as “a dream job for us rubber monster nerds!"

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 hope they are working on non-Xenomorph creatures. I'd like to see something new. The Xenomorph is perfect and really don't think I'd like to see it messed with. or 'improved'.

New monsters that lead to the Xeno would be cool...the genesis XENO.

Excellent news, those guys ROCK. Their work on Fury Road was outstanding!


TrilobiteMember9516 XPMar-29-2016 5:08 PM

Finally, an Alien that won't be portrayed by Tom Woodruff Jr.


NeomorphMember1691 XPMar-30-2016 7:02 AMMaybe this will be a good thing, we'll see. I haven't watched Mad Max: Fury Road so I can't say much about it. That movie has Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy in it and they were in Prometheus so it could be interesting.

I agree with MonsterZero that it would be interesting to see if the Engineers have made some other life forms that are not Xenos. Hopefully they will still follow the Engineers that much so we will see if they have made some other monsters than the traditional.

Tom Hardy in Prometheus? Maybe confusion with Logan Marshall-Green, as they look kind of similar. Hardy is a good actor. Would have been a good choice to  play Holloway come to think of it.

sp_jockey: My mistake, yeah they look sort of similar.
