It seems that the future of the Alien franchise may have been good hands as Legion creator Noah Hawley wanted to make an Alien show series for FX.
In a report published by Deadline, Noah Hawley was apparently attempting to make a miniseries based around the popular franchise for FX. He had previously worked for the network, developing the popular television adaptation of Fargo and would go on to create the X-Men series Legion. But it seemed that, at one point, Noah Hawley had his eyes set on the iconic Alien.
The report sadly does not give us any details as to what the Alien show may have been about. All that it says is that the show was conceived of as a miniseries but was apparently shut down by studio executive Stacey Snider. Why this was shut down, however, is unknown.
What do you all make of this news? Would you have like to see Noah Hawley take on the Alien franchise as a show series for FX? Does it only work as a film franchise? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
Here is a plot synopsis for Noah Hawley’s latest FX show, Legion:
From childhood, David shuffled from one psychiatric institution to the next until, in his early 30s, he met and fell in love with a beautiful and troubled fellow patient named “Syd” (Rachel Keller). After Syd and David shared a startling encounter, he was forced to confront the shocking possibility that the voices he hears and the visions he sees may actually be real. Syd led David to “Melanie Bird” (Jean Smart), a demanding but nurturing therapist who heads a team of specialists – “Ptonomy” (Jeremie Harris), “Kerry” (Amber Midthunder) and “Cary” (Bill Irwin) – each of whom possesses a unique and extraordinary gift. Together, they helped David to recognize and harness his hidden powers. With their support, David finally unlocked a deeply suppressed truth – he had been haunted his entire life by a malicious parasite of unimaginable power. Known as the “Shadow King,” this malevolent creature appeared in the form of David’s friend “Lenny” (Aubrey Plaza), but is actually an ancient being named “Amahl Farouk.” In an epic showdown, David and his friends battled his demon, ultimately forcing it from David’s body. Unfortunately, Farouk found a new host – Melanie’s husband “Oliver Bird” (Jemaine Clement) – and escaped. Just when they thought they’d earned a moment of respite, a mysterious orb appeared and took David away to an unknown place. With David and Oliver missing and Farouk on the loose, the team forms an unlikely alliance with their former enemy “Clark” (Hamish Linklater) and his well-funded government organization, Division III. Meanwhile, Amahl Farouk (Navid Negahban) is on a new path to attaining infinite and world-ending power.
Legion stars Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Jean Smart, Jeremie Harris, Amber Midthunder, Bill Irwin, Aubrey Plaza, Jemaine Clement, Hamish Linklater, Navid Negahban, Harry Lloyd, and Stephanie Corneliussen.
Legion Season 3 is set to air in 2019 on FX.
