According to ProductionList, the next Alien movie is set to begin filming in Budapest, Hungary in early 2023.
The film, which has the working title Alien: Romulus, will apparently begin filming on February 6, 2023. it is being directed by Fede Álvarez, who is best known for directing Don’t Breathe and 2013’s Evil Dead — both of which received positive critical reception upon release.
Details on the next installment in the Alien series are currently scarce, although it is said to be “unconnected” to previous films. A fan of the iconic franchise himself, Álvarez had pitched a film idea to Scott several years ago in a casual conversation. This eventually led to Scott calling Álvarez last year to see if he was still interested and it was quickly set.
20th Century then picked up the new Alien movie due to the strength of Álvarez’s pitch, as it was a “really good story with a bunch of characters you haven’t seen before,” according to 20th Century’s Steve Asbell.
