News Upcoming ‘Alien: Covenant’ Novel is a Sequel to the Film Published 3 years ago on January 13, 2017 By Nick Bond Share Tweet I bet you’re probably wondering how the hell could we be getting a sequel to a film that hasn’t even been released yet. Well, it will not be a direct Alien: Covenant film sequel, but rather in book form. The upcoming novel will be 304-pages long and is titled Alien: Covenant 2: The Official Sequel to the Blockbuster Film! You can pick up the new Alan Dean Foster novelization from Titan Books on September 26th, 2017, four months after the official release of the film. The film is directed by Ridley Scott, and written by Michael Green, Jack Paglen, and John Logan. Alien: Covenant is a prequeal to Scott’s Alien and a sequel to Prometheus, which is set twenty years before Alien and ten years after Prometheus. “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.
