Just a brief update on the production of Alien: Covenant. Filming is scheduled to begin sometime later next week and the crew is setting up in Fiordland National Park, New Zealand. Thanks to Dread Central and AVP Galaxyfor sharing a first look at the set being constructed on location.

It definitely looks like the entrance or loading dock for a ship, is this part ofthe doomed Covenant? Possibly, but nothing is certain until we get further along into filming. This brings me back to the feeling of excitement and curiosity when the first set pics of Prometheus were leaked. Let’s hope for a stronger entry into the franchise this time around.

Recently Billy Crudup was cast in “Key” role. You remember Billy from his Blue Penis Days in 2009’s Watchmen.

Alien: Covenant will be released August 4, 2017.

The cast has been set and includes – Michael Fassbender, Billy Crudup, Katherine Waterston, Benjamin Rigby, Demian Bichir, Danny McBride, Jussie Smollett, Amy Seimetz, Carmen Ejogo, and Callie Hernandez.

As reported earlier Noomi Rapace will not be joining the mission this time around, however an official announcement has yet to be made. Here’s hoping for a cameo!

All we know of plot so far is the official synopsis –

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, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
