Noomi Rapace is coming on board Fox’s “Alien: Covenant,” the sequel to Ridley Scott’s “Prometheus.”
She joins Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Demian Bichir, Billy Crudup and Danny McBride with Scott directing.
Plot details have not been disclosed for “Alien: Covenant,” the second of what will be a trilogy of films. Rapace played the role of archaeologist Elizabeth Shaw in “Prometheus.”
Principal photography recently started in Australia’s New South Wales. The film arrives in theaters on Aug. 4, 2017.
“Prometheus” was set in the late 21st century and about 30 years prior to the events in Scott’s 1979 movie “Alien.” The pic, which generated box office of more than $400 million worldwide, followed scientists aboard the spaceship Prometheus who discovered remains of an advanced civilization developing weapons that could wipe out the human race.
