by Ken Miyamoto on November 17, 2015

Fox has confirmed that the new title for Ridley's Scott's upcoming sequel to his Prometheus (a prequel to Alien) will now be Alien: Covenant

Fox also released a title treatment and has set an October 6th 2017 release date for the film.

"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."

Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender are set to reprise their roles of scientist Elizabeth Shaw and the android David in the film which begins production in February in Australia.
