Noomi Rapace Set To Star In Upcoming ‘Alien: Covenant’ Film
Noomi Rapace will be reprising her Prometheus character in the film’s upcoming sequel Alien: Covenant, according to reports on Monday.
Noomi Rapace Will Star In ‘Prometheus’ Sequel ‘Alien: Covenant’
Ridley Scott, director of Prometheus and Alien: Covenant, was reportedly asked in January by The Daily Mail, if Rapace would reprise her role in Alien: Covenant, and his reply was a simple “no,” adding only that they were “still casting the main roles.”
Rapace will be returning to the role of archaeologist Elizabeth Shaw, who managed to survive the events of Prometheus before choosing to go on an even more adventurous mission to the Engineers’ homeworld with android David (Michael Fassbender).
The previously released synopsis for Alien: Covenant suggested that Shaw’s fate was unknown: “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, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.” The film is said to be set ten years after the events of Prometheus.
Sources say Rapace is in Australia and on the set to shoot scenes in Scott’s film, which also has a cast that includes Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride and Demian Bichir.
Alien: Covenant is set to be released on Aug. 4, 2017.
