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 If.com.au, 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.
