Katherine Waterston’s character Daniels in Ridley Scott’s Alien Covenant was the first, then Michael Fassbender having his head attached to a body were the first two images revealed for the upcoming Prometheus sequel film.
Now, new image reveals director Ridley Scott with actor Danny McBride. No other details have been revealed as to who McBride’s character will be playing.
In addition to news about Alien Covenant, new reports indicate the return of Noomi Rapace in the Prometheus sequel. Noomi Rapace emerged from Prometheus as one of the few survivors and the one who seemed most to want to follow the adventure forward with Michael Fassbender’s character, it was long reported she would not be back to reprise her role as Elizabeth Shaw in Ridley Scott’s next installment Alien: Covenant. Maybe that has changed.
Sources say Rapace is in Australia and on the set to shoot weeks worth of scenes in Scott’s film, which brings back Fassbender’s robot character and has a cast that includes Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride and Demian Bichir. Info is on lockdown, so we’ll have to wait for the film to be released August 2017, by Fox to see how it all worked out.
Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
“Alien: Covenant” arrives in cinemas August 2017 from 20th Century Fox.
