It has officially been announced that Ridley Scott’s prequel to Alien, Alien: Covenant, will now go forward without Noomi Rapace. Rapace, who played Dr. Elizabeth Shaw in the previous film, Prometheus, the previous Alien prequel, is the last known survivor from Prometheus’ fateful voyage. Alien: Covenant is set to be 10 years after the events in Prometheus. There were plans to incorporate Rapace into Alien: Covenant. It was said earlier that her role was small, but that she would be making an appearance. It looks now, however, that her role has gotten significantly cut, taking her out of the film completely. There are still no plans or comments on the state of Michael Fassbender’s role, David, in the upcoming Alien: Covenant.

Unlike some of you, or most of you, I actually enjoyed Prometheus. I was hoping to see Rapace continue her role as Dr. Shaw, seeing that the film basically leaves off with a cliffhanger. Maybe we will briefly find out what happened to her in this next film.
