Late yesterday a rumor cropped up online that not one but two proposed TV series set within the “Alien” franchise were in the works – one having Ridley Scott helming the pilot and streaming on Hulu. Now, the reliable Mr. H (via Dread Central) has shot down the talk and gone into detail about where things stand.
It turns out that, at one time, a live-action TV series based on the property was in the works but at present there are no plans whatsoever for it. What plans were made have apparently morphed into something else (most likely something animated).
In any case, until the Disney merger is complete, there is no development happening with anything to do with the franchise aside from the previously announced “Alien: Blackout” mobile game.
