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…
