20th June 2016 - Noomi Rapace Joins Cast
EXCLUSIVE: Even though 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 4, 2017, by Fox to see how it all worked out.
28th February 2016 - Release Date Moved Up
Fox has moved up the release date for “Alien: Covenant,” Ridley Scott’s sequel to “Prometheus,” by two months to Aug. 4, 2017, from Oct. 6, 2017.
The studio has also pulled Channing Tatum’s “Gambit” and “The Mountains Between Us” from their release dates.
“Alien: Covenant” stars Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Demian Bichir, Jussie Smollett and Danny McBride star. Plot details have not been disclosed for “Alien: Covenant,” the second of what will be a trilogy of films, with principal photography planned for Australia’s New South Wales.
26th February 2016 - Alex England Joins Cast
EXCLUSIVE: A late addition to the cast of Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant: Australian actor Alex England has landed a role in the ensemble that Fox begins shooting next month. He joins Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Demian Bichir, Danny McBride, Jussie Smollett, Amy Seimetz, Carmen Ejogo and Callie Hernandez. England, who is onscreen in Gods of Egypt, is repped by UTA, Management 360 and United Management in Australia.
25th February 2016 - Jussie Smollett, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez and Amy Seimetz Join Cast
Michael Fassbender and Katherine Waterston are starring in the sequel to 2012's 'Prometheus.' Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant is rounding out its cast with the addition of Empire star Jussie Smollett, Selma's Carmen Ejogo, Machete Kills' Callie Hernandez and The Killing's Amy Seimetz.
The Fox film will see the return of Michael Fassbender in the role of the amoral android from the first film and the addition of franchise newcomers Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride and Demian Bichir.
The plot for the sequel to 2012's Prometheus has been kept largely under wraps. Scott is producing with David Giler, Walter Hill, Mark Huffam and Michael Schaefer. Shooting is expected to commence next month in Australia.
25th February 2016 - Billy Crudup in Negotiations to Play a Key Role
EXCLUSIVE: Billy Crudup, who was part of the killer ensemble cast of Best Picture Oscar nominee Spotlight, has lined up two more big pics. He is in advanced negotiations for a key part in Alien: Covenant, the sequel to Ridley Scott’s Prometheus that is set to begin production next month in Australia. He also joined the cast of Jackie, the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis biopic starring Natalie Portman and produced by Darren Aronofsky.
17th December 2015 - Katherine Waterston to Star
EXCLUSIVE: Katherine Waterston, who co-starred in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice, is set to star in Alien: Covenant, the Ridley Scott-directed sequel to his Prometheus. In what will be the biggest role of her career to date, Waterston has been cast as the lead, Daniels.
Scott of course had put the 20th Century Fox project on hold to do The Martian, which is in the thick of the awards-season race. Covenant is his next pic. Specific plot details for the new one are being closely guarded, but it is believed to follow the crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet, who discover what they believe is an uncharted paradise but is, in fact, a dark, dangerous world, the only inhabitant of which is David (Michael Fassbender), the “synthetic” and survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
Covenant is believed to be the first in a conceived trilogy of new films that will link the events of Prometheus with the original 1979 Ridley Scott-directed classic Alien.
16th November 2015 - Title + Release Date Revealed
20th Century Fox officially announced today that the film has been renamed Alien: Covenant.
Here is the official plot synopsis and title treatment for the film, which opens October 6, 2017:
"Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS -- and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. 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."
21st March 2014 - Prometheus Sequel In Development
Finally, the studio also set an unspecified Ridley Scott project for release on March 4th, 2016. The hard-working director previously indicated that his followup to his Biblical blockbuster Exodus (which opens December 2014) will be a sci-fi offering, though that only partially narrows the list of possibilities – as Scott currently has three projects that fall under that genre’s jurisdiction in development: a Prometheus sequel, a second installment set in the Blade Runner universe (though WB distributed the first movie), and the novel adaptation The Forever War.
