Katherine Waterston (Inherent Vice, Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, Steve Jobs) has been cast in the Ridley Scott?s Prometheus sequel, Alien: Covenant.
She takes the lead role of a character called Daniels.
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.
Alien: Covenant is set to begin production in February of 2016 in Australia, with Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender both returning.
Ridley Scott also recently said that we would be seeing the return of the classic Alien in the new film.
