Danny McBride to join Ridley Scott’s ‘Alien: Covenant’?


Danny McBride is ready to make the jump to sci-fi as the hilarious actor is in early discussions to join Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant. McBride would be joining Michael Fassbender, who is reprising his role from Prometheus, and Katherine Waterston as the series’ new female lead.

Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship “Covenant” discovers what they believe to be an uncharted paradise. What they’ll soon realize is that the planet is a dark and dangerous planet — whose sole inhabitant is the sole survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.

Alien: Covenant is expected to launch the latest Alien trilogy that will link Prometheus and Alien.

According to The Wrap, McBride and Scott are true cinephiles and have hit it off while discussing old movies.

Alien: Covenant invades theaters in 2017.
