Nichols to Take on the “Alien Nation”

Remakes are becoming common ground in Hollywood and all over the world. The latest movie in development to get the remake treatment is Alien Nation, which starred James Caan as a L.A. detective who joins forces with an extraterrestrial detective, played by Mandy Patinkin when in the future, the aliens have settled in Los Angeles.

The film spawned a television series from 1989 to 1990 that starred Gary Graham in the Caan role and Eric Pierpoint in the Patinkin role. The series would spawn five made-for-television films from 1994 to 1997 with all of the original TV cast returning to bring closure to the TV version.

Twenty-eight years after the original theatrical film, Fox is now developing a reboot with Jeff Nichols (Midnight Special, Loving) hired to write and direct the film.

Look out for the new Alien Nation in the future.
