An original stand-alone Alien movie is in development for 20th Century Studios.

Uruguayan filmmaker Fede Álvarez will write and direct the movie while director Ridley Scott, who directed the original sci-fi horror movie released in 1979 and returned for two 21st century installments, will produce via his Scott Free production company.

The project is intended to be made for Hulu as part of the 20th Century’s ambitions to make more than 10 movies a year for the Disney-operated streaming service.

The first movie from the "Alien" franchise was released in 1979. It centered around the horror of a ferocious race of alien beings called Xenomorphs, who implant eggs inside living bodies via “facehuggers” that violently burst out of chests when they reach a certain stage of maturity.

Dan O’Bannon scripted the first movie, which played out like a contained horror story about the doomed crew of cargo spaceship Nostromo.

The survivor, Ripley (played by Sigourney Weaver) became the human face of the Fox franchise when James Cameron directed a sequel, "Aliens", in 1986, turning it into an action movie and a massive cultural hit. Two more movies, with Weaver, followed in the 1990s.

Scott returned to his co-creations with prequels Prometheus, an ambitious and theologically minded movie released in 2012, and 2017’s Alien: Covenant; both attempted to tell the origins of the species.
