Noomi Rapace will appear in Alien: Covenant, the upcoming sequel to Prometheus. The actress will be reprising her role as Elizabeth Shaw, natch.
Rapace joins a cast that also includes fellow returnee Michael Fassbender, Steve Jobs’ Katherine Waterston, Demián Bichir, Selma’s Carmen Ejogo, Jussie Smollett (TV’s Empire), Danny McBride.
Waterston, though, is the one who will be taking center stage in the follow-up, as Daniels, the alpha on board a new ship, the aptly named Covenant, which will encounter David (the Fass) on a remote planet that looks all idyllic and s--- but is actually full of darkness and danger.
Alien: Covenant is set for an Aug. 4, 2017, release.
