Danny McBride is on the Bridge in New Alien: Covenant Photo
Following last night’s reveal that Prometheus star Noomi Rapace would be reprising her role for the upcoming Alien: Covenant, a new photo from the set of the film has debuted online featuring Danny McBride and director Ridley Scott. Check it out in the gallery below!
Michael Fassbender (reprising his Prometheus role) stars in the film along with Katherine Waterston (Inherent Vice), Demián Bichir (The Hateful Eight), Jussie Smolett (Empire), Amy Seimetz (Upstream Color), Carmen Ejogo (Selma), Callie Hernandez (Machete Kills), and Billy Crudup (Watchmen).
Set as the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with Prometheus, Alien: Covenant connects directly to Ridley Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. It begins with the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy. There, the crew discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
Jack Paglen (Transcendence) and Michael Green (Green Lantern) are providing the Alien: Covenant screenplay, which Ridley Scott will once again direct. 20th Century Fox is set to distribute the film in theaters on August 4, 2017.
