Ridley Scott To Bring Us Alien: Covenant

Ridley Scott has been talking about a sequel to Prometheus for a while now and pre-production has finally began on the film which is now being titled Alien: Covenant, changed from the previously announced Alien: Paradise Lost.  The film will arrive in theaters October 6, 2017 and a synopsis has also been released: 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. Full production on the film will begin n February 2016
