We are excited to announce that Ricco Ross (Aliens) will be joining the cast of ALIEN IDENTITY as Richard Frost, the brother of Pvt. Robert Frost, and will also be coming on board as a producer for the film.


 “When I heard of the story I thought, ‘why hasn’t someone thought of this sooner?’ Great idea and it makes sense that the concept would come from a fan and not Hollywood Execs. Very happy to be a part of this exciting project and to get the cast on screen together again. Aliens fans, buckle up, you’re in for a hell of a ride. Stay frosty.”
-Ricco Ross
As a surprise to the fan community, we’re happy to announce Carrie Henn (Aliens) is confirmed to make an appearance in ALIEN IDENTITY as Anne Jorden, young Newt’s mother in a flashback. This will be Henn’s first film in nearly 30 years since Aliens (1986).
“I am looking forward to working on Aliens from a different perspective. I can’t wait to hear what all the fans think!”
-Carrie Henn
“Ricco’s and Carrie’s contributions to this tribute film are very exciting for us all. They are both amazing people and we’re thrilled to work with them. I am also really excited to play Newt, she’s a strong character with a complicated past. There’s a lot to explore there.”
– Elle Viane Sonnet

Director’s Message to the Fans and Film Community:

I just want to say that I am very thankful to the fans for their encouragement and support for this very exciting film. We’re bringing some of the best talent on board to give it the quality and purity it deserves. We will be revealing more surprises in the coming months.
We also wanted to extend our gratitude to
20th Century Fox for allowing the fans over the years to produce well executed Alien/Predator fan films like Batman: Dead End, Aliens: LV-426, and most recently, Predator: Dark Ages. Films like these are a testament to the potential of the fan film community, and we hope that our film, ALIEN IDENTITY, will inspire others as well to create fan films for years to come. As a fan of the Alien films, I’m very much looking forward to what Neill Blomkamp is doing and want to wish him continued success.
– Adam Sonnet, Director/Writer


ALIEN IDENTITY is a Tribute Feature Film to the Alien Universe. It plays heavily on the aesthetics of H.R. Giger and takes place 14 years after the events of Aliens, with an alternate timeline. The director wants to explore further into the unknown, discovering uncharted territory, introducing new heroes, villains, and ideas, while remaining faithful to the essence of Alien.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, Boing-Boing,, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
