News New ‘Alien: Covenant’ Photo Teases Connection to ‘Alien’ Published 2 years ago on November 30, 2016 By Nick Bond Share Tweet First of all, we want to wish a very happy birthday to Ridley Scott! Today, to celebrate his birthday, 20th Century Fox shared a brand new image from the set of the upcoming prequel Alien: Covenant, which strongly connects the film to the original. Take a look at Scott standing by a sunning recreation of the ship from the 1979 Alien film. Alien: Covenant is directed by Ridley Scott from a screenplay by Michael Green, Jack Paglen, and John Logan. The film is said to be set ten years after the events of Prometheus. The story goes: “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, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.” Michael Fassbender is returning as Prometheus‘ android David, with Katherine Waterston (Inherent Vice, Jobs, The Babysitters) leading a new crew that includes Demian Bichir and Danny McBride (“Eastbound and Down”), as well as Alex England (Gods of Egypt), Billy Crudup, Amy Seimetz (A Horrible Way to Die, “The Killing”), Jussie Smollett (“Empire”), Carmen Ejogo, and Callie Hernandez (Machete Kills). Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant reaches theaters on the new date of May 19, 2017.
