20th century studios announced the plot and cast details of the upcoming production of alien. The most outstanding thing so far is that the director of this new chapter of the saga is Uruguayan.
As reported by the specialized media VarietyAlthough the premise of the film – which does not yet have a definitive title – is being kept under wraps, the studio has revealed that the film will follow the story of “a group of young people in a distant world, who are confronted with the most terrifying life in the universe.
It seems sartrean, but surely, in the absence of complementary information, it is only an error of assessment. Those who will have to face “the terrifying forms” are David Johnson (Industry), Archie Renaux (Shadow and bone), Isabela Merced (Rosalina)Spike Fearn (Batman) and Aileen Wu (Away from Home), who will join the previously announced role: Cailee Spaeny (Easttown mare).

In an interview made in March last year with the Uruguayan newspaper VillageAlvarez commented that the film he had to direct was like an unexpected prize, “one of those projects that fall into the category ‘a child’s dream'”.
Apparently, even then there was already “a draft of the film’s screenplay” written by Alvarez himself, a charrúa, a Nacional fan who never misses an opportunity to declare himself “absolute fan of the saga”.
The film will be shot ahead of a premiere coinciding with the 45th anniversary of the original film.
The United States Library of Congress listed alien in the National Film Registry in 2002 for “historical preservation”, considering “its cultural and historical importance or aesthetically significant”.
In turn, in those ratings that viewers like so much, the American Film Institute chose it as “the seventh best film in the sci-fi genre”. And that’s not all: so the famous British magazine Empire did not hesitate to consider “the thirty-third best film of all time”.
