Danny McBride is in early talks to join the cast of Ridley Scott’s “Alien: Covenant” for 20th Century Fox.
This follow-up to “Prometheus” and prequel to “Alien” follows the colony space ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy which they discover is a dark, dangerous world – the home of the Engineers.
Its sole living inhabitant? The amoral android David (Michael Fassbender) from the doomed Prometheus expedition. Katherine Waterston is also onboard as the female lead, while McBride is likely to play one of two technician roles in the film that have a slight comedic bent.
Filming will take place in Australia shortly.
