ALIEN: COVENANT is an upcoming 2017 science-fiction horror film directed by Ridley Scott and written by Jack Paglen, Michael Green, and John Logan. It is the sequel to the 2012 film Prometheus, the second installment in the Alien prequel series, and sixth installment overall in the Alien film series. The film stars Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, and Guy Pearce, returning in their roles from Prometheus, with newcomers Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Billy Crudup and James Franco.
Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant find what they believe to be an uncharted paradise. What the crew discover is a dark, dangerous world, whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
