Alien: Covenant confirmed

This weekend, director Ridley Scott gave the upcoming Prometheus sequel a brand-new title when he referred to it as Alien: Covenant, a slight change from the previous title of Alien: Paradise Lost. Now 20th Century Fox has confirmed the film will be subtitled “Covenant” and that it will be released in theaters on October 6, 2017, a date it shares with Warner Bros.’ The Jungle Book: Origins. In addition, the synopsis for the film has been released and reads as follows:

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.

Production on Alien: Covenant is set to begin in February of 2016 in Australia, with Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender set to reprise their roles of scientist Elizabeth Shaw and the android David. Given the film’s synopsis, it remains to be seen how Rapace’s Shaw will factor into the film. Jack Paglen (Transcendence) and Michael Green (Green Lantern) are providing the screenplay.
