    Alien Nation (Remake - TBA)

    Alien Nation Remake Lands Jeff Nichols as Director


    A reboot of the Alien Nation television show was announced back in 2009, but that floundered in development limbo so long until it was ultimately abandoned. Last year, Fox revealed its intentions to rework the cult sci-fi movie but had, at the time, hired Art Marcum (Iron Man) and Matt Holloway (Punisher: War Zone) to pen the script. Deadline is now reporting that filmmaker Jeff Nichols will be the one doing the writing, while Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (Loving) and Sara Greene (Mud) will join him on the project as producers.

    The original movie has somewhat of a cult following, which allowed Fox to greenlight a television show based on the film – which it subsequently cancelled after one season (because that’s what Fox seems to enjoy doing with good shows). However, the franchise remained popular with fans, which is explains why Fox gave them five made-for-TV movies: Dark Horizon, Body and Soul, Millennium, The Enemy Within, and The Udara Legacy. The property also continued on in print as a series of novels by Star Trek writers Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens, as well as novelizations by famed sci-fi authors K. W. Jeter and Barry B. Longyear. Malibu Comics even adapted the characters into a decent, yet short-lived, comic book series in 1990.

    Having a young, talented, award-winning writer and director such as Jeff Nichols in charge of things is definitely a step in the right direction. His drama movie Mud, starring Matthew McConaughey, earned a lot of praise from critics and audiences alike, while his excellent sci-fi drama, Midnight Special, starring Michael Shannon (who also headlined Nichols’ Take Shelter), drew accolades nearly across the board from everyone earlier this year. As far as remakes go, Alien Nation seems to be in good hands and there isn’t necessarily anything at this point to be overly concerned about, from a fan perspective.

    We're flawed, because we want so much more...
