The cast of ‘Alien: Romulus’ features a blend of rising stars and established talent. Cailee Spaeny, familiar to audiences from ‘Civil War’, takes on a leading role. Joining her are David Jonsson, Archie Renaux, Isabela Merced, Spike Fearn, and Aileen Wu. Behind the camera, Fede Álvarez, the visionary director of ‘Evil Dead’ and ‘Don’t Breathe’, brings his unique style to the Alien universe. 

He co-wrote the screenplay with Rodo Sayagues, ensuring a cohesive and chilling narrative.

Adding a touch of nostalgia to the project is the involvement of Ridley Scott, the director who helmed the original 1979 masterpiece. Scott serves as a producer on ‘Alien: Romulus,’ ensuring a connection to the franchise’s legacy.

In an interview director Fede Álvarez emphasises his desire to return to the franchise’s roots. He describes the film as taking place “a few years” after the events of the original ‘Alien’ and highlights the use of “puppeteering, animatronics, all the old-school techniques.” This approach signifies a deliberate move away from the heavy reliance on CGI seen in recent instalments.

However, Álvarez assures fans that the film isn’t simply a throwback. He mentions utilising these traditional techniques alongside modern methods when necessary.  “We had the right guys because they worked on the originals,” he explains, “so that we made sure we’re faithful to the spirit of the original movies.”
