ALIEN: Fede Alvarez's Upcoming Movie Adds THE CRAFT LEGACY Star Cailee Spaeny

There's finally been some movement on Fede Alvarez's mysterious Alien movie we first heard about this summer, with up-and-comer Cailee Spaeny set to play the lead...

This article was originally published at SFFGazette.com.

We found out earlier this year that 20th Century Studios and Hulu were in the process of developing a new Alien movie with Fede Alvarez (Don't Breathe; Evil Dead) on board to write and direct, and the project has now found its lead.

According to THR, up-and-coming Mare of Easttown actress Cailee Spaeny (The Craft: Legacy; Pacific Rim: Uprising) is set to star. No details on her character were provided, but there's already speculation that she might be playing an older take on Newt from James Cameron's Aliens.

While there is always a chance this film will be connected to the previous instalments in the franchise, it is being described as a reboot. Either way, it's probably safe to assume that it won't continue the divisive plotlines that played out in Ridley Scott's Prometheus and Alien: Covenant.

Scott will produce under his Scott Free banner, however. Apparently, the legendary filmmaker was intrigued by an idea Alvarez pitched him on a few years ago, and called him out of the blue last year to see if he had any interest in developing it.

Hulu is also working on an Alien TV series with Noah Hawley (Fargo; Legion) that's expected to premiere at some point over the next two years. Whether both projects will be linked in any way remains to be seen.
