The Fargo and Legion creator is working on a TV series that will be the first Alien story set on Earth, blending the timeless horror of the original 1979 movie and the non-stop action of the 1986 James Cameron-directed second, FX boss John Landgraf announced at Disney's Investor Day. Landgraf also revealed that FX is in talks with Alien director Ridley Scott to come on board as an executive producer and possibly direct. In an interview last month with Deadline, Hawley said of the Alien rumors: "I know that there’s an effort to reshuffle a lot of things post-Disney takeover and it was a conversation that I had a couple years back. And I have not in the last few weeks been having those conversations about it. But I know that like any studio that there’s a great desire to make the most of one’s library so I wouldn’t be surprised to see something like that." He added: "Ya know, I have conversations from time to time, but I’m not committed."
