Universal is co-financing the project with Benders and CBS Films.
“I’m incredibly excited to be making ‘Aliens,’ a story of two people who are going through very real and very frightening times and their lives are about to change for the better,” Brie said in a statement.
“With the help of my friends and colleagues, we will be creating a story that’s both funny and deeply moving.”

And the role that I play, I think that I’m going to be the star, and I’m not going to take any shit from anybody.
And I don’t think I’ve ever taken any shit on this show.
So, thank you for being here, everybody, to be with me.
I’ve got nothing to say.”
