It looks like Ridley Scott is casting up potential Engineers and Xenomorphs for Alien: Covenant, his upcoming Alien prequel/Prometheus sequel shooting this coming April in Australia.
Management Group MCTV shares a casting breakdown asking for actors aged 8-40 that are “skinny and very tall or skinny and very short but strong and very physically agile.”
Other skills requested: “Fast in Movement. Acrobats, Dancers, Gymnasts, Contortionists, Cirque du Soleil type performers.”
This sounds exactly like the Xenomorphs that first appeared in Alien (Bolaji Badejo) before becoming a full next in James Cameron’s Aliens.
Prometheus featured the mammoth Engineers, who are gigantic compared to humans.
Scott already promises the return of the “big bad,” the only question is, how many?
Late last year Scott also excited us all when he said, “We’ll have them all: egg, face-hugger, chest-burster, then the big boy.” He also explained that the film will reveal a destroyed Engineer planet, and also shared plans for an expanded universe that will eventually bridge directly into his 1979 Alien.
Katherine Waterston recently landed the lead role. She will reunite with her Jobs co-star Michael Fassbender, while Scott has previously confirmed that Noomi Rapace will also return.
FOX recently set Alien: Covenant for release on October 6, 2017.
