 Alien: Romulus Rumours

Fede Alvarez

A new Alien film was revealed to be in development in March 2022 and will be directed by Fede Alvarez, who previously directed Don’t Breathe and the Evil Dead remake. The upcoming Alien film will be produced by Ridley Scott and will originally announced for for the Hulu streaming service but in June 2023, it was revealed it will be getting a theatrical release. The working title is Alien: Romulus and began filming March 9th, 2023 in Budapest, Hungary.

Alien: Romulus Development

Director Fede Alvarez pitched his Alien sequel idea to Ridley Scott many years ago who then called him in 2021 and asked if he was still interested in doing it. President Steve Asbell said his pitch was a good story with some interesting characters.

Álvarez’s take is being kept deep inside the studio’s chest cavity, but sources describe it as unconnected to the previous movies.

According to sources, Álvarez is a rabid fan of the franchise and casually pitched a take to Scott many years ago. The idea remained implanted in Scott’s brain until late last year, when he called Álvarez out of the blue and asked him if he was still up for it. Álvarez didn’t have to be asked twice.

20th Century picked up the project “purely off the strength of Fede’s pitch,” said division president Steve Asbell. “It was just a really good story with a bunch of characters you haven’t seen before.”

Asbell, who recently spoke to THR about the future of 20th Century Studios, said by doing the project for Hulu, there wouldn’t be the pressure to whittle down the potential edginess that could come with theatrical considerations. “It’s not a film that has to be all things to all people with those gargantuan budgets. They get to be authentically what they are. And this is closer to its genre roots.”

Alien: Romulus Casting

Actor Cailee Spaeny was in talks for the lead role in Alien: Romulus and recently posted a piece of H.R. Giger artwork to her Instagram. In March 2023,  Isabela Merced was confirmed to be appearing. Later, Cailee Spaeny, David Jonsson, Archie Renaux, Spike Fearn and Aileen Wu were announced as cast members. Phoebe Waller-Bridge remains unconfirmed to be playing one of the movie’s android characters.

Alien: Romulus Storyline

The movie is completely unconnected to the previous Alien films. In March 2023, Variety posted a short synopsis of what we can expect from Alien Romulus.

While the premise for the yet-to-be-titled movie has been kept under wraps, the studio did reveal that the film will follow “a group of young people on a distant world, who find themselves in a confrontation with the most terrifying life form in the universe.”

Alien: Romulus Release

After announcing the Alien film was just for the streaming platform Hulu, Disney confirmed in June 2023 that it will in fact be getting a theatrical release. It will be hitting cinemas August 16, 2024.

  1. cant wait to see an alien film on the big screen for the first time since getting into this franchise not too long ago i hope to see some kind of teaser or trailer soon but hopefully it dosen’t reveal too much of the film.

  2. With the New chapter of the alien franchise alien Romulus will be awesome sci-fi horror movie ever there will be no more rumor or gossip about alien Romulus movie i hope there is a official teaser and theatrical trailer by June or July and if 20th century studios will work on the live action movie based on the 80s cartoon and toys is call lazer tag academy with a New storyline and cast and many more and debut by March 2025 plus the trailer by January 2025 a New beginning for the alien franchise and reboot my 40 th birthday is on Sunday March 31 2024

  3. If Hollywood Would cast from high school or college so let me join the alien universe movie and tv series coming to hulu and Netflix after the alien franchise there is a reboot of the 80s classic call lifeforce with Megan fox and zoe saldana and the live action movie metropolis will be two part on Netflix based on 2001 anime and please do the remake of lazer tag academy tv series to hulu and Netflix plus the pliot movie and captain Power and the soldiers of the future movie and tv series coming to hulu and Netflix like five seasons New cast and storylines that my idea cast me Happy New year 2024

  4. After alien Romulus can they do two more aliens movies like alien 6 revealation in 2025 and alien 7 bring back Ellen Ripley to her last fight against these xenomorph aliens creature and have Jennifer garner join the cast has a New android and after alien series is the remake of buck rogers in the 25th century movie and tv series coming to hulu in 2025 and 2026 a New beginning of the alien series the end of the gold diggers pranks devil works time to live with god these girls will get their revenge on You tube gold diggers pranks devil works to end

  5. I seen the trailer and it looks like it will be good.but I don’t understand why their are younger people to play the crew of the alien Romulus a reboot? I’m a little confused.i can’t wait to watch alien really excited.

  6. Man I can’t believe this is happening and I can’t wait to see a alien romulus like that and almost like a alien covenant sequel you know but also alien covenant sequel will might be possibly but it will still ever happen how the sequel was going to for depends about what is going to be happen next and I am so excited about that other movie and even the tv series as well of course.

  7. No rumours about alien Romulus please bring sigourney weaver as Ellen Ripley in the franchise without Ripley in the franchise history will repeat itself until need to be fixed 20th century studios need to work on the alien 5 movie to bring call back play by actress Winona ryder need a release date for alien 5 with a title by 2024 What happened to David on alien covenant and android walter need delete scenes and reboot of lazer tag academy live action movie and tv series coming to hulu and 20th century studios for alien 5 call alien revealation that the title and cast Elizabeth olson to play android and Dakota Johnson as captain of the space ship

  8. If alien Romulus teaser tralier will be out next summer and a poster and New poster plus tv spots and video game with more storyline and ending more alien movies and tv series coming to hulu and fx because paramount stop fliming Star trek 4 with no title or release date so 20th century studios get Star trek 4 a New home and do robotech movie and voltron movie plus bring back Ripley to one last fight

  9. Alien Romulus will be a great movie is a sequel to alien covenant and Prometheus if one actress will play rook in The movie than yes this android will replace David 8 from the series yes will have storylines will debut in October 2023 if The release date is official

  10. Surely the Covenant storyline should be concluded first? Finish that and then maybe start another storyline. It’s like watching the first 3 seasons of Colony on Fox and then discovering that it was cancelled just as it was getting good.

  11. As someone else previously stated, they need to either end the stories or keep going. I would like to see a continuation of both Alien and Prometheus. Leaving the stories in limbo is not the way to go.
