Katherine Waterston To Lead “Alien: Covenant”

Following stellar turns in “Inherent Vice” last year and both “Steve Jobs” and “Queen of Earth” this year, actress Katherine Waterston has scored the lead role in Ridley Scott’s upcoming “Alien: Covenant” feature at 20th Century Fox.

The story follows the colony ship Covenant which discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world – a world whose sole inhabitant is the ‘synthetic’ David (Michael Fassbender) from the doomed Prometheus expedition.

Waterston will take on the role of Daniels in the film, but nothing is known about the character beyond the name and status. Scott has said all the classic forms of the xenomorph will appear in the film which goes into production in February ahead of an October 2017 release.
