20th Century Fox’s upcoming film, Alien: Covenant will bring back the endoparasitoid extraterrestrial species, Xenomorph in many forms, according to Scott.
Speaking with TheWrap, English film director and producer, Ridley Scott was asked about his Prometheus sequel, he quickly corrected the interviewer: “Yeah. Well, really it’s “Alien.”
They’re going to go to the planet where the Engineers came from, and come across the evolving creature that they had made.
Why did they make it? Why would they make such a terrifying beast? It felt bio-mechanoid, it felt like a weapon. And so the movie will explain that, and reintroduce the Alien back into it.”
“There was always this discussion: Is Alien, the character, the beast, played out or not?,” Scott continues before revealing: “We’ll have them all: egg, face-hugger, chest-burster, then the big boy.”
Xenomorph (AKA The Alien) is the eponymous antagonist of the Alien film series. It made its debut in Alien (1979), and reappeared in the sequels, Aliens (1986), Alien 3 (1992), and Alien: Resurrection (1997), as well as the crossover franchise Alien vs. Predator (2004) and Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (2007).
A similar creature with a slightly different design made a briefly appearance in the Ridley Scott’s Prometheus (2012) and now it returns in Scott’s latest, Alien: Covenant.
Covenant will feature Noomi Rapace as Elizabeth Shaw & Michael Fassbender as David.
“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 & screenplay by Jack Paglen and Michael Green.
Alien: Covenant hits theaters on October 6, 2017.
