Ridley Scott’s Alien-prequel/Prometheus-sequel, Alien: Covenant, isn’t the only movie about extraterrestrial horrors the filmmaker is bringing to theaters in 2017; he also produced Phoenix Forgotten, a found-footage shocker based on the well-documented mass UFO sighting dubbed The Phoenix Lights. The film will be released in the US on April 21st.
On March 13th, 1997, thousands of people (thousands!) witnessed a triangular formation of lights hovering over the skies of Phoenix, Nevada, and Sonora, Mexico. The event was widely documented on video and reported nationally and internationally on major news networks.
From the producers of The Martian & 300 and the creative team behind The Maze Runner, Phoenix Forgotten is produced by Scott’s Scott Free Productions and is the directorial debut of Justin Barber, who co-wrote the script with T.S. Nowlin (The Maze Runner). The film stars Florence Hartigan, Luke Spencer Roberts, and Chelsea Lopez. Check out the latest clip (via Bloody Disgusting) below.
