Following yesterday's batch of images, the official Alien Twitter account has released an Alien: Covenant cast image, which confirms James Franco as part of the film.

A new Alien: Covenant trailer will also be released during tomorrow's episode of Legion on FX. 

Introducing the #AlienCovenant crew. Don’t miss @LegionFX on @FXNetworks tomorrow, February 22, for a special sneak peek.

"Alien: Covenant" has a May 19, 2017 release and is directed by Ridley Scott starring Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, Noomi Rapace, Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Jussie Smollett, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz and Callie Hernandez.


Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS — and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discovers what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world — whose sole inhabitant is the “synthetic” David (Michael Fassbender), survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
