By March 2014, a 'Prometheus' sequel was in development, with Scott set to return as the director. Michael Green wrote a script based on a first draft from Jake Paglan, which reportedly places the new film more into the horror genre than the original.
Originally revealed as 'Alien: Paradise Lost', the film was later retitled as 'Alien: Covenant. Actors Michael Fassbender and Katherine Waterston are expected to appear, with Waterston in the lead role of Daniels. Though Scott claimed that the Noomi Rapace's character would be returning for 'Alien: Covenant' in November 2015, he confirmed in an interview in January 2016 that Rapace would not be reprising her role and that the casting process for the lead roles were ongoing.
A new release date of August 4, 2017 was announced.
