Whilst speaking to MovieWeb about the impending release of The Hateful Eight on DVD and Blu-Ray, Demian Bichir talks Alien: Covenant. As is to be expected at this point in production, Bichir doesn’t reveal much in regards to the upcoming Prometheus sequel but he does talk about working with Sir Ridley Scott and the expected duration of the shoot:
“We don’t know exact dates yet, all I know is it’s going to be a long shoot, almost like The Hateful Eight. It took five months to shoot The Hateful Eight. We spent a couple of months in the mountains, and a couple of months in a studio in Los Angeles, and this will go for about another four months or so. I have very little details at this point, but we will get there. I’m sure we will get together and read, rehearse, everything.”
MovieWeb are saying that Alien: Covenant will have a four month shoot. However, the way Bichir was talking makes this a little unclear as to the actual duration.
Bichir isn’t the only actor on Alien: Covenant to have spoken about the film. Earlier this month, Benjamin Rigby also spoke a little about his role in Alien: Covenant: “I’ve read the whole script, and it’s great, I really like it. I have a great character. I’d say it’s a sizable role. It’s a good plot device. My favourite roles to play are plot devices.”
