Our interviews with the Alien Covenant cast continue with Demián Bichir, Danny McBride and Billy Crudup
This Friday, director Ridley Scott again returns to the franchise he created nearly 40 years ago. CS had the opportunity to sit down with the Alien Covenant cast and, in the player below, you can check out our second set of interviews. This one features stars Demián Bichir (The Hateful Eight, The Heat),Danny McBride (This is the End, Eastbound & Down) and Billy Crudup (Watchmen, Rudderless). They’re talking about what it’s like to work with a director so interested in world building and how the world of Alien even spilled out of the film itself into the prologue short The Last Supper.
A 20th Century Fox film, Alien Covenant follows the crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy. Upon discovering what they think is an uncharted paradise, a team sets out only to experience a kind of horror that helps bridge the gap between Scott’s Prometheus and his original Alien.
If you missed it last week, be sure to watch our interview with star Katherine Waterston. We’ll be back again soon with one more video, in which we sit down with the returning Michael Fassbender (who plays the dual synthetic roles of David and Walter) alongside Sir Ridley Scott himself!
The Alien Covenant cast also includes Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, Jussie Smollett, Callie Hernandez, Nathaniel Dean, Alexander England, Benjamin Rigby, and James Franco. Jack Paglen (Transcendence) and Michael Green (Green Lantern) provided the Alien: Covenant screenplay.
