Alien Nation

Disney has taken Jeff Nichols off the case. The Hollywood Reporter reports that in the wake of the Disney-Fox merger, they’ve decided to shelve his long-gestating remake of the iconic 80s movie Alien Nation, which Jeff Nichols, the acclaimed director of Mud (which starred Matthew McConaughey at the height of the McConaissance) and, more recently, […]
