Audiences are one step closer to the latest entry of the Alien franchise as production has wrapped on the latest installment.

It has been more than five years since the last time the xenomorphs were seen on the big screen, and expectations are high for this new horror tale featuring some of the most iconic movie monsters in history.

Uruguayan filmmaker Fede Álvarez, serves as the director, screenwriter and producer, following his direction of horror movies “The Girl in the Spider’s Web”, “Don’t Breathe”, and the “Evil Dead” remake.

While the film hasn't yet been officially titled, however, it did show up in a production listing posted by the Film & Television Industry Alliance as "Alien: Romulus".

It will follow a group of young people in a distant world, who find themselves in a confrontation with the most terrifying life form in the universe. 

Those who will be faced with the terrifying forms are David Jonsson (“Industry”), Archie Renaux (“Shadow and Bone”), Isabela Merced (“Rosaline”), Spike Fearn (“The Batman”), and Aileen Wu (“Away from Home”), all of whom will join the previously announced lead, Cailee Spaeny (“Mare of Easttown”).

Under the Scott Free banner, original “Alien” director, Ridley Scott serves as an executive producer with Michael Pruss (“Our Friend”). Scott and Pruss are joined by producers Brent O’Connor (“Bullet Train”), Elizabeth Cantillon (“Persuasion”), and Tom Moran (“The Donut King”).

The project joins the prequel series, which first premiered in 2012, with “Prometheus”, followed by “Alien: Covenant”. The prequel series is the latest iteration and follows the original series which began in 1979, with “Alien”, followed by “Aliens”, “Alien 3”, “Alien Resurrection”, and then the crossover series which began in 2004, with “Alien vs. Predator” and “Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem.”

The movie hits theatres on August 16, 2024.
