Alien Legion moves forward November 17, 2009 Movie adaptation of Alien Legion moves forward… According to the USA Today the proposed cinematic version of Alien Legion has started to move forward. Originally released in the 1980s, the science fiction comic is set in outer space and features aliens and humans batting alongside one another. Series creator Carl Potts noted that writers Derek Haas and Michael Brandt are currently working on a third draft of the script, addingthat the project would be ideal for Jerry Bruckheimer to produce. “Bruckheimer’s never done a science fiction before, so that challenge, I think, is something that would hold his interest. The success they’ve had with blending CGI and live-action characters in the Pirates Of The Caribbean series could translate easily to an Alien Legion film,” he stated.
