Katherine Waterston Starring in Ridley Scott’s ‘Alien: Covenant’

“Inherent Vice” star Katherine Waterston is coming on board Fox’s “Alien: Covenant,” Ridley Scott’s sequel to “Prometheus.”

Fox revealed recently that “Alien: Covenant” will use Australia’s New South Wales for its principal photography, following the injection of state government support. Shooting is expected to start early next year and the studio has scheduled the release date for Oct. 6, 2017.

Plot details have not been disclosed for “Alien: Covenant.”

“Prometheus” was set about 30 years prior to the events in Scott’s 1979 movie “Alien.” The film, which generated over $400 million in worldwide box office, was centered on scientists aboard the spaceship Prometheus discovering remains of an advanced civilization, which was developing weapons that could wipe out the human race.

Michael Fassbender is expected to return to his role from “Prometheus” as the android David.

Waterston appeared in “Steve Jobs” and will star opposite Eddie Redmayne in “Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them.” She’s repped by UTA and Silver Lining Entertainment.

The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
