Alien Filming Wraps on Disneys First Alien Franchise Movie

Evil Dead and Don’t Breathe director Fede Alvarez is directing the next installment in the Alien franchise, which will notably be the first Alien movie released by Disney.

We’re now one step closer toward the theatrical release of Alvarez’s Alien on August 16, 2024; the filmmaker took to Instagram yesterday to celebrate the wrap on principal photography.

Alvarez is directing the brand new Alien movie for Ridley Scott and 20th Century Studios, with Cailee Spaeny (The Craft: LegacyPacific Rim Uprising) leading the cast. Isabela Merced, David Jonsson, Archie Renaux, Spike Fearn and Aileen Wu also star.

The project is described as “an original standalone feature.”

THR recently previewed, “Plot details are being kept in a cryochamber, but as opposed to the other movies which focused on adults in corporate, militaristic and scientific roles, this now-ninth installment of the franchise will focus on a group of young people.”

In this ninth entry in the immensely popular and enduring film series, a group of young people on a distant world find themselves in a confrontation with the most terrifying life form in the universe.”

Alvarez co-wrote the script with Rodo Sayagues (Evil Dead).

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.

The Alien film franchise is currently eight 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. The last entry in the franchise was 2017’s Alien: Covenant, directed by Ridley Scott.

Alvarez’s upcoming Alien movie isn’t the only expansion of the franchise on the horizon. Noah Hawley’s Alien TV series for FX is also in the pipeline, ensuring a Xenomorph-filled future ahead on the big and small screen. Which are you most excited to see?
