Ben Rigby Joins ‘Alien: Covenant’

Ben Rigby has joined the cast of Fox’s “Prometheus” sequel “Alien: Covenant.”

Michael Fassbender is set to star as well as Katherine Waterston and Danny McBride, with Ridley Scott returning to direct.

Plot details have not been disclosed for “Alien: Covenant.” It will be released on Oct. 6, 2017.

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

Rigby can be seen next in the Weinstein Co. pic “Lion” opposite Dev Patel, followed by the indie “That’s Not Me.”

He is repped by Link Entertainment and Helen Pandos Management in Australia.
