Alien Nation is one of those movies that stands as a testament to 80’s originality. The film depicted a world where humans and aliens needed to co-exist on Earth in modern times (at the time that was 1991.) It was an interesting film that spawn a FOX television series as well as a few made-for-TV movies.
THR reports that Twentieth Century Fox is looking to reboot the film with Art Marcum and Matt Holloway (Iron Man) handling the script. This new film will give more of an explanation as to why the aliens came to Earth in the first place.
The original is essentially a buddy-cop story following the first alien detective and his human partner.
There aren’t any further details at this time and no producers have been attached to the film yet either. FOX however seed this new Alien Nation film spawning a film franchise.
