A new Alien Nation movie is in the works with Iron Man scribes

September 12th, 2016 by Marc Comments


Hey, 1980s kids, another of your (possibly) beloved franchises is returning to the big screen!

Yes, Alien Nation is getting remade at FOX with a script from Iron Man writers Art Marcum and Matt Holloway.

The original movie – and subsequent TV show – focused on the near future where aliens had landed on earth and had been assimilated into society, working jobs with humans and becoming normal members of society, with all the problems and pluses that comes with that. The movie starred Mandy Patinkin and James Caan(above).

Very little is known about the new movie – will it be a reboot? A sequel? A spinoff? Set on earth or the visitors’ planet? Who knows.

All we do know is that the invasion is coming…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
