According to newspaper information Deadlinethings are accelerating for the next movie Alien from 20th Century Studios. American actress and singer Cailee Spaeny is even in talks to have a big role in this sequel/reboot.
Alien on the way, but in whose hands?
Cailee Spaeny is an actress that we had the opportunity to discover in Pacific Rim 2 or even in the fantasy film The Craft: The New Witches. It is his name that emerges after several meetings with the production. Note in passing that it is for the moment the only member of the cast known. For the realization, the first information speaks of the presence of Fede Alvarez who is notably behind the 2013 remake of Evil Dead but also and above all the excellent horror film don’t breathe. For the production, still according to Deadline, it should be Scott Free Productions. This house is well known for being in the hands of Ridley Scott and for producing all of his films, once with the help of his late brother Tony Scott.
Unfortunately, we don’t know anything else about the project, especially in terms of the scenario. The first rumors mention a reboot, remains to be seen if it will be a soft version or a major overhaul of the saga, which may not be to everyone’s taste. Especially if we completely eliminate the cult character of Ripley, who carries the franchise at arm’s length on the third and fourth film.
