Noomi Rapace will appear In Alien: Covenant! While her character made it off of LV-223 alive, Noomi Rapace’s involvement in the sequel has been unknown. That is no longer! According to this latest update from Deadline, Noomi is in Australia and about to film!
“Sources say Rapace is in Australia and on the set to shoot weeks worth of scenes in Scott’s film, which brings back Fassbender’s robot character and has a cast that includes Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride and Demian Bichir. Info is on lockdown, so we’ll have to wait for the film to be released August 4, 2017, by Fox to see how it all worked out.”
Despite previous comments from Ridley Scott that Noomi Rapace would appear in Alien: Covenant “briefly”, Elizabeth Shaw was absent from the synopsis that was released when the film was announced. The only news regarding from Shaw’s involvement came when Ridley Scott spoke to the Daily Mail and told them that Noomi Rapace would not be in the film.
Ever since that news, fans have been speculating as to what has happened to Shaw between the films that would lead to her not appearing in the film. While Deadline don’t go into the specifics of her involvement, it would appear the character has not been forgotten and Shaw and Noomi will be making an appearance.
