20th Century Fox has dropped some casting news for the upcoming Alien: Covenant which included Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them star Katherine Waterston. Now another member has joined the crew.
According to Deadline, Demian Bichir has joined the upcoming Alien film. His role is still a mystery as of now but he joins Prometheus star Michael Fassbender, who will reprise his role as David. Alien: Covenant is scheduled for an October 6th, 2017 and according to Ridley Scott, will be followed by up to three sequels.
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.
