Katherine Waterston (Inherent Vice, Steve Jobs, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) has been cast opposite Michael Fassbender in Ridley Scott’s ‘Alien: Covenent.’ Scott is readying for a shoot in Australia in early 2016. The movie is said to be both a prequel to the 1979 ‘Alien’ and a sequel to the ‘Alien’ prequel ‘Prometheus.’
Plot details are being kept under tight wraps in the meantime. However, sources are saying that it will again center around a space crew who go up against the chest-bursting, acid spewing alien creatures.
