James Franco joins the ranks of the cast of the upcoming Ridley Scott movie Alien: Covenant

The follow up movie on the 2012 sci-fi thriller Prometheus, Ridley Scott directs the next instalment in the Alien franchise, Alien: Covenant. The movie is based on the script by Jack Paglen, Michael Green, and John Logan.

The movie already flaunts a star-studded cast including, Michael Fassbender who is reprising his role as a synthetic being David, Noomi Rapace who is also an original cast member from Prometheus, Guy Pearce, along with newcomers Katherine Waterston, Demian Bichir, Billy Crudup, and Danny McBride.

There is one more recent addition which was confirmed. James Franco is also a part of the project, according to Variety. His casting has been under covers but it was recently confirmed although the studio 20th Century Fox has not commented on the confirmation yet

The movie follows the story premise from Scott’s 1979 sci-fi horror which continues the evolution of the horrifying xenomorph following the events of LV-223. The movie follows the colony ship Covenant as it heads toward a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy.

Crew members discover what they believe to be an uncharted paradise, which turns out to be a dark, menacing world in which the only inhabitant is the synthetic David (Fassbender), a survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition. The new batch of eager young space cadets are ill-prepared for a run in with the Alien.

Franco is currently starring in Fox’s “Why Him?” opposite Bryan Cranston. He is busy promoting the comedy which opens in theatres this Friday.
