20th Century Fox Reveals ‘Alien: Covenant’ Title, Release Date And Synopsis | Film News
After Ridley Scott let slip the new title for the Prometheus sequel, 20th Century Fox have officially confirmed the new film will be called Alien: Covenant. Scott had previously referrred to the film as Alien: Paradise Lost. Alongside this news, Fox also confirmed a new release date of October 6, 2017, opening against Warner Bros’ Andy Serkis-directed Jungle Book: Origins. A new synopsis was also revealed, giving us our first pieces of the film’s story:
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.
Alien: Covenant begins production in Australia this coming February. Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender are set to reprise their roles from the first films. Ridley Scott directs from a screenplay by Michael Green (Green Lantern) and Jack Paglen (Transcendence).
