With all the talk about Aliens and Prometheus recently, we’ve been waiting patiently to see who would be the lead in the next movie… and now we know.
The beautiful and talented Katherine Waterston has been cast as the lead in the Alien/Prometheus movie Alien: Covenant.
The actress is best known (for now) as Emma Harrow in Boardwalk Empire, but that could all soon be about to change.
All we know about the movie so far is that it is “believed to follow the crew of the colony ship Covenant, bound for a remote planet, who discover what they believe is an uncharted paradise but is, in fact, a dark, dangerous world, the only inhabitant of which is David (Michael Fassbender), the “synthetic” and survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.”
Waterston will be see in Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them next before joining the Prometheus sequel which will link the two franchises together.
