Ridley Scott took home a Golden Globe for The Martian, now he is headed to Australia his next film, Alien: Covenant. Scott has teamed that he is aiming for a “pretty hard R” rating.


“I felt a sense of responsibility that I had gone too far because it was extreme.” Scott referring to Alien “I’m going to try and do that again this year, but much worse.”

Alien: Covenant continues where Prometheus ended, while at the same time connecting back to the original Alien film. The film “…begins with the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy. There, the crew 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.”


Scott has also mentioned that we will see all phases of the Xenomorphs, which has never been done before. We also know that Katherine Waterston has been cast as “Daniels”. Michael Fassbender will be reprising his role as the android David.  Noomi Repace will also be returning for Covenant.  Alien: Covenant will open in theaters on October 6th, 2017.
