Swedish actress, Noomi Rapace will be back to reprise her role as Elizabeth Shaw in Ridley Scott’s sequel to the 2012 film Prometheus, Alien: Covenant, according to reports.
Deadline reports that Rapace is on the set in Australia to shoot weeks-worth of scenes for the movie.
Noomi Rapace joins the cast that includes Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Jussie Smollett, Amy Seimetz, Carmen Ejogo, Callie Hernandez, Billy Crudup, Alexander England and Benjamin Rigby.
Sequel to the 2012 film Prometheus, and the second installment in the Alien prequel series.
“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.”
Directed by Ridley Scott & written by Jack Paglen and Michael Green.
Alien: Covenant hits theaters on October 6, 2017.
