A new set photo from Alien: Covenant has been released, and right in the middle, flanked by Danny McBride, is James Franco.
Franco was rumored to be in Covenant a few months back, and now we have visual evidence. There’s no hint as to what his role will be, or how large it will be in the finished product, but perhaps the garb he’s in is a clue to his role. Or maybe he’s just cold.
This set photo comes ahead of a sneak peek at Alien: Covenant, which is attached to the new episode of Legion over at FX.
Here’s the photo:
Bound for a remote planet on the far side of the galaxy, the crew of the colony ship Covenant discover what they think is an uncharted paradise, but is actually a dark, dangerous world, whose sole inhabitant is the synthetic David, survivor of the doomed Prometheus expedition.
There’s Michael Fassbender on the right, Billy Crudup behind him. Katherine Waterston is there, but unless my eyes are failing me I don’t see Noomi Rapace. Maybe that’s her second on the left, but I don’t think so.
For anyone who doesn’t want to sift through Legion to see the sneak preview, we will have it for you here. Alien: Covenant opens May 19.
