There is no shortage of good quality science-fiction films headed our way, and the latest installment will be a remake from some time ago. Hollywood Reporter revealed that Alien Nation has been put up for a great remake, from producer Gale Ann Hurd and 20th Century Fox. Let us take a look at whatever we know regarding the Alien Nation franchise.
The plot for the upcoming film will be written by Matt Holloway and Art Marcum, the famous Iron Man writers. Reports from THR indicate that Fox is keeping all the details as secret as possible. However, the latest rumors suggest that the film will be a reboot in a style comparable to the highly successful, Rise of the Planet of The Apes. According to Fox, ‘’the first installment will begin by telling how and why the aliens came to Earth’’.
However, Alien Nation will face serious competition with the upcoming Prometheus 2 movie. It is surely possible as recent rumors indicate Prometheus 2’s release date in early 2016. Hence, viewers can expect Alien Nation to be released around the same time-period. Critics are wondering which film might come on top. Alien Nation was a massive cult hit after its release in 1988, featuring novels, TV Series adaptations, comic books and several novels.
