Want to Be In Alien Covenant? Ridley Scott is Seeking Tall Actors to Play Engineers

Alien - Rebecca Ferguson - Alien 5 - Alien Identity

Management group MCTV has just announced that they are looking for very tall, very skinny actors as well as very short, very strong and agile performers to appear in Ridley Scott’s Alien Covenant. The film will begin lensing in Sydney this April.

The casting call seeks “performers ages 8-40 who are slender and very tall or skinny and very short but strong and very physically agile.” Also listed as preferred characteristics are performers that are “Fast in Movement. Acrobats, Dancers, Gymnasts, Contortionists, Cirque du Soleil type performers.” The notice also listed ability to perform light lifting as important. The roles the MCTV seeks to fill are those of Engineers and Xenomorphs. Interested parties in the Sydney area should contact MCTV through their website.

What we know about the sequel so far is that Demián Bichir, Michael Fassbender, Katherine Waterston, and Danny McBride will be among the film’s core cast and that the film is scheduled for a nationwide theatrical release October 6, 2017.

The official plot synopsis reads: “Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in Alien with AlienCovenant, 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.”
