Fede Alvarez To Make An ‘Alien’ Film


‘Don’t Breathe’ director Fede Alvarez has been picked by 20th Century Studios to make the next installment in the Alien franchise. Original director Ridley Scott is producing through his Scott Free banner.

No story details have leaked out but Alvarez is a big fan of the material and apparently pitched an idea to Scott years ago. Scott, who up until recently was talking about make another sequel himself, liked the idea and last year put a deal together.

20th Century Studios picked it up off the strength of the pitch and have set it up at Hulu so that the filmmakers don’t have to tone it down for a theatrical release.

Alvarez recently wrote the divisive ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ for Netflix but found success with his ‘Don’t Breathe’ films and ‘The Evil Dead’ remake.
