“Alien” remains one of the most beloved horror/sci-fi franchises of all time, and any addition to the series will surely produce excitement and speculation. “Alien” fans looking for more may have their prayers answered in the summer of 2024, when a new film premieres. According to the Film & Television Industry Alliance, the film is currently titled “Alien: Romulus.”
Plot details are being kept under wraps, but 20th Century Studios told Variety the film will focus on “a group of young people on a distant world, who find themselves in a confrontation with the most terrifying life form in the universe.” Fede Álvarez, known for his films “Evil Dead” and “Don’t Breathe,” helms the project. 20th Century Studios’ Steve Asbell told The Hollywood Reporter the studio took on the project “purely off the strength of Fede’s pitch.”
The cast includes Cailee Spaeny (“Mare of Easttown”), David Jonsson (“Industry”), Archie Renaux (“Shadow and Bone”), Isabela Merced (“Rosaline”), Spike Fearn (“The Batman”) and Aileen Wu (“Away from Home”). No further details have emerged from the shoot apart from Álvarez’s cheeky photo in celebration of Alien Day.
Premiere: August 16, 2024
