Siara, who wrote Palm Springs, is handling the script, while Samberg, Hawley, and Bob-Waksberg will produce with Ben Stiller.

alien tv series

Just the other day I wrote up a story with Noah Hawley saying that his idea for an Alien TV show wasn’t happening. Well, it looks like he lied! Because during the big Disney Investor Day presentation it was announced an Alien TV series from Hawley is indeed on the way. Hawley will write and executive produce the series and Alien franchise director Ridley Scott is in advanced talks to executive produce. It will be set “not too far into our future,” and also be set on Earth – a first for the franchise.

noah hawley star trek update

At one point, it seemed very likely that Fargo and Legion creator Noah Hawley would be involved with both an Alien TV series and Star Trek 4. But these days, both projects are looking less and less likely. In a new interview, Hawley confirms that there’s next to no movement on either property. As Hawley tells it, he hasn’t really been involved with anything regarding Alien for a few years, and while Star Trek 4 came “very close to production,” things ultimately fizzled out.

noah hawley's star trek

While Star Trek is thriving on television again, Paramount can’t quite figure out what to do with the property when it comes to new movies. Fargo and Legion creator Noah Hawley was hired to develop a Trek movie that’s since been put on hold, which would have featured a new cast of characters separate from the ones that appeared in the recent trilogy of Bad Robot movies. Now, in a new interview, Hawley explains that his film will have a direct connection to the established franchise’s canon – assuming, of course, that it ever actually receives a greenlight at the studio.

star trek reboot on hold

Noah Hawley‘s Star Trek movie, which isn’t to be confused with the long-delayed Star Trek 4, is now on hold. Paramount actually has three different Trek movies on the backburner: Star Trek 4, the Star Trek movie that Quentin Tarantino was going to direct, and Hawley’s movie. The fate of all three remains in doubt now, and sources state that one of the reasons for the delay of Hawley’s film is that the plot involves a deadly virus, which audiences might not be in the mood for anytime soon.

Noah Hawley’s Fargo series has paid homage to the Coen Brothers movie that inspired it, and other Coen movies like The Big Lebowski. Hawley said he drew from the Coens’ Raising Arizona to begin his fourth season. The show is currently in production, but Hawley and the cast were on a Television Critics Association panel to discuss it.

Chris Rock and Jason Schwartzman star as rival gangsters in 1950s Minnesota. Hawley discussed the Raising Arizona influence, the role of police in this season, and the season’s thematic connection with Fargo. Fargo returns April 19 on FX.

Paramount surprised Star Trek fans when they announced Noah Hawley would write and direct a new movie set in the iconic science fiction universe. This came after plans for a fourth Star Trek with Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto to be directed by S.J. Clarkson fell through.

star trek 4

The Star Trek feature films may be exploring strange new worlds, and abandoning old story plans — and possibly even its familiar cast.

The fate of Star Trek 4 has been in question since the departure of stars Chris Hemsworth and Chris Pine in 2018, followed soon by director S.J. Clarkson. Last month, it seemed like phasers were set to go again with the boarding of Lucy in the Sky director Noah Hawley. However, according to Star Trek Beyond star Simon Pegg, it’s possible that Hawley’s Star Trek project isn’t actually Star Trek 4 at all.

lucy in the sky review

Lucy in the Sky seems like it has something to say. It’s on the tip of its tongue: a message about being disconnected with life, about how the terrifying and beautiful vastness of space can make one feel infinitely small, about Natalie Portman‘s bad wig. But despite stunning cosmic visuals and a tour-de-force performance from Portman, Noah Hawley‘s highly anticipated debut feature is as devoid of meaning as the emptiness of space.
