[Exclusive] Noah Hawley’s Alien Series To Start Filming March 2022 in Thailand!

With the first character details for FX and Noah Hawley’s Aliens series having hit the internet earlier this month, it is starting to look like production is heating up on the upcoming series and that casting has already begun. Now, Alien vs. Predator Galaxy has learnt that Noah Hawley’s Alien series is currently scheduled to begin filming March 2022 in Thailand, and possibly some Eastern European locations!

 [Exclusive] Noah Hawley's Alien Series To Start Filming March 2022 in Thailand!

We also got our hands on a current production synopsis that describes the series as –

Set not too far into our future, it’s the first ‘Alien’ set on Earth — and by blending both the timeless horror of the first ‘Alien’ film with the non-stop action of the second, it’s going to be a scary thrill ride that will blow people back in their seats.

From the character details we also know that synthetics – or artificial persons – will continue to play a role in the Alien series, with the uploading consciousness seemingly being explored in Noah Hawley’s series. Previously, this has been something only teased in the Alien franchise with Aliens vs. Predator 2’s Dr Eisenberg having his own consciousness transferred to a synthetic body following an Alien attack that left him severely wounded.

    Pretty sure this first season is gonna be about WY conspiracy stuff.. and.. that's fine... as a one-off.
    After that, if the 2nd season doesn't go somewhere out into space and explores some actual cosmic horror mystery (a big part of the appeal of the first alien movie...) then it'll be a gigantic waste of imagination.

    I would like to learn more about human civilization in the Alien future. Sometimes that can make the Alien even more alien imo, if it is handled in a smart way. I'm a fan of The Expanse by the way.  :laugh: But I must admit that I am more interested in the alien mysteries that might be there in the dark corners of space as well.  8)

    that new book is 100% gonna feel like "licensed Alex White fan fic"

    Nailed it!  :laugh:

    I have zero interest in that followup book from another author with the family members of Shy and Ripley.


    Agreed.

    I was stoked for a galactic conflict follow-up, but then I found out White wasn’t writing it and it was full of an improbable number of relatives of people we’ve met before :(

    (No disrespect to Barnett, hopefully I’ll be pleasantly surprised, but I feel like White did such a good job building that world it kinda belongs to them.)

    And that was a wonderful book.. as a one-off.

    That's not what the ALIEN IP as a whole ought to be: the space politics of faction X vs faction Y.

    Well, settle in, 'cause that book sets up a whole goddamn galactic war !

    Adored Into Charybdis. Without a doubt in my mind, the best Alien novel I've read.

    It's funny you say that actually, because Legion, already did conspiracy in the middle of the show inside a building, with androids, a brother finding out his sister's inhabiting someone else's body... black insect like monsters... a giant pervasive burecratic entity they all live under and a retro futuristic aesthetic...

    ...hold on!
  5. skhellter
    as much as i like Alex White, i fear that a lot of their contributions to the series would be... "why don't we make this a bit closer to the Expanse?"
    which is exactly what Into Charydbis feels like before the aliens show up.

    I believe something with the Prometheus scope would have worked better as a TV series, than as a 2 hour movie, and you definitely can't have hours and hours of TV show centered around an acid-blood monster. I agree, however, that the themes shouldn't undermine the Alien, but you need to use other concepts for wolrdbuilding and character development.

    I put that quote since I couldn't find the one about exploring the people of the future, who walk around in dirty sneakers aboard a spaceship.  :laugh: But seriously, I cannot omit my personal taste for anthologies, since it opens up the possibility of exploring different tropes of the universe. Also, I wish someone like Alex White were a creative consultant, as it would be superb.
  7. BlueMarsalis79
    But as already said... I used it as an example of that kind of science fiction being good and also being successful, nothing more, I thought putting it in brackets might make it clear that it's an addendum not part of the main response- my bad on that.
  8. BlueMarsalis79
    Being about anything effectively makes it about nothing. The IP becomes meaningless -- when you pick up an Alien title are you getting a story about Aliens, or are you getting another generic scifi?

    General public sees Alien, wants Aliens, which is how IPs work.


    Yes that's an issue I have with Prometheus as a single film.  (Four Seasons of Black Mirror beg to differ in terms of the general concept though of the subject matter changing substantially episode by episode.)

    Besides I never said it can be about just anything, just that Prometheus' indecisiveness opened the door a lot wider, for all that room in the genre itself.

    As for the public wanting Aliens... and yet Prometheus still struck gold financially anyway.

    It's enough to have the "DNA of the Alien" in it, if you can not find an appropriate place for it, we will all have to get used to this being the status quo going forward anyway:

    Because the Aliens will not be appearing episode by episode, so you will hopefully have great episodes that by necessity will not feature the Alien once at all, and like a recent horror on Netflix that might even be the best part.

    And if it follows the structure of Fargo as I expect it will to a degree as an Anthology as originally reported years ago, and it is successful enough to continue on, you will inevitably get whole seasons without an Alien to be seen.

    A series could delve philosophically into synthetic people. Not necessarily like in Blade Runner, but as its own thing. Also, I wouldn't mind something like existential horror in Alien's world.

    Arcturians confirmed?

    :laugh:

    With some poontang, even better.

    The idea of Arcturians as future transgender people rather than aliens was always stronger in my mind.

    I do not like Prometheus a lot as a film, but I am really glad that it being essentially about nothing in particular and thus anything you want to take from it, lead to this environment of using the universe to tell stories that do not necessarily have to even feature the titular Alien but definitely exist in that space with it.
  12. SiL
    And I'm disagreeing.

    I wouldn't want a Blade Runner series to focus on dealing with acid-bleeding space monsters, I don't want an Alien series focusing on what it means to be human.
  13. BlueMarsalis79
    Like... why?

    Having spent a lot of time in Bangkok I can say part of it definitely looks like it could be an 1980’s retrofuturistic cyberpunk city.

    Probably an Engineer temple in the jungle full of black goo or a buried something or other 😄

    Awaiting a shipment from a certain android-controlled Weyland-Yutani colony ship, perhaps? ;)

    That might make a lot of sense actually.

    "Set on Earth ... not so far in the future" = David was successful in sending us something in order to kill us.  :laugh:

    It’s gonna do one of two things jus coz Ridley’s involved; intertwine with the prequel lore or play it safe and be totally unrelated to anything.
    I think it’ll stay away from the main trilogy for sure or hit Resurrection far flung timeline Territory if so..could do a cool aged Ripley 8 episode..the Xenomorph got to Earth etc that way. Prefer prequel era setup for a third film but whatever
  17. Enjoy
    I Watched an interview with a street food vendor in thailand and he was asked if he was afraid of china and his response was basicly he could care less. Very zen and unintimidated .
