Noah Hawley opens up about future of Alien TV series and Star Trek 4
Well, fans will have to wait a while before watching anything new. Alien Universe. When Disney acquired 21st Century Fox, the rights to the franchise passed to the House of Mouse, which seemed potentially interested in a TV series with the famous xenomorph. But according to Legion showrunner Noah Hawley, talks for a show have stalled, for now (via SuperHeroHype).
“I know there’s an effort to overhaul a lot of things after the Disney takeover and that’s a conversation I had a few years ago,” he told Deadline. “And I haven’t had these conversations about it in recent weeks. But I do know that like any studio, there is a great desire to make the most of their library so that I won’t be surprised to see something like this.

In the same interview, Hawley also spoke about the future of the Star Trek movies. He was at one point attached to the fourth film after the reboot. But as with the Alien show, it looks like things are on hold at Paramount right now.
“It doesn’t seem to be in my immediate future,” he added. “I think when Emma [Watts, President of Paramount Pictures] arrived, she took a look at the franchise and wanted to go in a different direction with it. But you know, life is long, we were very close to production but in this business that doesn’t mean much. You have to come out the gate to be in the race if you know what I mean.
