Hurd serious about Alien Nation redo

Movie News

A couple of days ago, whilst talking to our friends at UGO Uber-producer Gale Anne Hurd (“The Incredible Hulk”, The Terminator”) mentioned that of all the films she’s done – and she’s done quite a few – she’d most like to remake “Alien Nation”.

Not a bad idea huh? Though the film – a late 80s sci-fi pic about a racist cop and an alien forced to team up – still plays well, it’s definitely got a few cobwebs tangled up in its spool, and tell me today’s tech and make-up masters couldn’t do wonders with those people-from-another-planet!?

I dropped Hurd a line to see whether she’s actually pitched the film or whether it’s just something she bought up in conversation – with no plans to actually convince someone with money to bankroll it.

The good news is? Hurd has indeed talked to the powers-that-be about doing the film but, in her words, there’s “no traction yet”.

Watch this Space.
