Here’s a bummer for everyone who was expecting Noomi to headline the Prometheus sequel “Alien: Covenant”. These last days, one of the big concerns was coming about was the lack of word on Rapaceâ€™s character Dr. Elizabeth Shaw and whether or not weâ€™d be seeing her return. After all, Prometheus ended with Shaw taking Davidâ€™s (Michael Fassbender) head onto a ship where they began their travels to try and find the Engineerâ€™s home planet. However, talking with Screen Daily, director Ridley Scott confirmed that Rapace would return, although only for a â€śâ€¦minor partâ€ś. Scott plans on making this new Alien film the first in a brand new trilogy, one that will eventually, â€śâ€¦drive into the back entrance of the film in 1979.â€ť Alien: Covenant is expected to hit theaters on October 6th, 2017.
