Well, that’s an interesting twist.
Noomi Rapace, who played “Dr. Elizabeth Shaw” in Prometheus, is officially not returning to reprise her role in Alien: Covenant, according to director Ridley Scott. This comes just a few months after Scott stated that Rapace would be coming back, although for a minor role. I guess they wrote that part out?
Rapace was the only human survivor from the 2012 sci-fi/thriller, alongside Michael Fassbender’s “David”, who is confirmed to return. Per Xposé, the direct also stated, “We’re still casting the main roles.”
The sequel to the 2012 film, Alien: Covenant will take place 10 years after the events of the first film. Tons of news has been coming out for it over the past several weeks, including that the movie will bring back the xenomorph eggs, face-huggers, and chest bursting that we’ve come to know and love over the years.
