Demian Bichir (“The Hateful Eight,” “The Bridge”) is joining the cast of Ridley Scott’s “Alien: Covenant” at 20th Century Fox.
The second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with “Prometheus,” this begins with the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy.
The crew soon learn what they thought was an uncharted paradise is actually a dark, dangerous world populated by the only survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition – the ‘synthetic’ David (Michael Fassbender).
Katherine Waterston and Danny McBride also star in the film which was written by Jack Paglen and Michael Green. Production is scheduled to begin shortly in Australia ahead of an October 6th 2017 release.
