Check out concept art from the upcoming Alien Hulu series in development from Noah Hawley who is known for Fargo and Legion.
The art below features a look at a Xenomorph grabbing some unlucky soul.
Additional art at AVP Galaxy reveals a Weyland-Yutani spaceship, the USCSS Maginot, crashing into a city controlled by the Prodigy Corporation, a rival to Weyland-Yutani, where the ship smashes into the underground levels.
Another piece of Alien concept art shows two soldiers coming upon Xenomorph eggs.
The site also adds Weta is involved with the special effects who did the VFX on Prometheus, Avatar, District 9, The Tomorrow War, and more.
Alien concept art:
Alien takes place before 1979 Sigourney Weaver movie
Details for the show include that Ridley Scott is onboard as an executive producer and that it takes place before the 1979 movie and won’t feature Sigourney Weaver or any characters from the original franchise.
“Alien takes place before Ripley,” FX chief John Landgraf stated in a press tour. “It’s the first story in the Alien franchise that takes place on Earth. It takes place on our planet, near the end of this century we’re currently in — 70-odd years from now.”
Landgraf also said, “I’m a big fan of Alien and Aliens, and I remember watching both of them in the theater and how shockingly original and surprising each of them was in its own way. And so, similar to his approach to Fargo, Noah decided to not take Ripley or any character from Alien — except perhaps the xenomorph itself — but go back and figure out what made the franchise so great and so durable in the first place and see if he could find an experience that felt like walking into a theater and seeing one of those first two movies, where you get caught off guard.”
A synopsis also compares the series to the first to Alien and Aliens movies:
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.
Alien character descriptions
Casting details also include the following descriptions where uploading consciousness seems to play into things.
Hermit is a male character in his 30s, a medic with the Army. They are looking for someone similar to Domhnall Gleeson for the role.
Wendy is Hermit’s sister, but stuck in another person’s body, a soldier (sounds like a male soldier). Hermit believed his sister was killed in an experiment but now realizes that she is in fact in someone else’s body, the soldier. The role requires someone able to do action and comedy so they are looking for an actress that is muscular, someone like Danai Gurira from Black Panther and The Walking Dead.
