Fede Alvarez’s ‘Alien’ Movie Filming in Budapest Early Next Year
As we learned earlier this year, Evil Dead and Don’t Breathe director Fede Alvarez will both write and direct a brand new Alien movie for Ridley Scott and 20th Century Studios, with Cailee Spaeny (The Craft: Legacy, Pacific Rim Uprising) set to lead the cast. The project is described as “an original standalone feature,” and it looks like filming will begin very soon.
According to a listing on ProductionList.com this week, the film is shooting under the working title Alien: Romulus, with filming set to begin on February 6, 2023 in Budapest, Hungary.
Ridley Scott, who of course directed the original classic in 1979 and later returned for prequels Prometheus and Alien: Covenant, will produce the movie via his Scott Free banner.
On a related note, FX has a small screen Alien project in the works at the moment, a planned “Alien” television series from Noah Hawley. That’s expected in 2023.
The Alien film franchise is currently six movies deep, with filmmakers including James Cameron, David Fincher, and Jean-Pierre Jeunet bringing to the screen their own versions of the Xenomorph monsters that Ridley Scott and Dan O’Bannon gave birth to back in the 1970s. No word yet on Alvarez’s pitch for his own take on the material, but we expect more real soon.
