Guy Pearce confirms appearance in Alien: Covenant! Last October Alien vs. Predator Galaxy exclusively revealed that Guy Pearce would be reprising his role as Peter Weyland in Alien: Covenant. Pearce hasn’t spoken about the film until now, where the topic was brought up with Latino Review Media and IndieWire.
While being quite cagey with his responses to LRM, he did confirm his involvement with Alien: Covenant. Pearce spoke more freely with IndieWire though:
“Ridley did such an incredible map for finding new ways to tell stories, and even if he does go back to the sort of the origins or what it was that made the original ‘Alien’s films so appealing, he still managed to do it in an innovative way,” the actor explained. “It’s not going to feel dated or old.”
Guy Peace talks briefly about working with Sir Ridley Scott and being in another Alien film, he does point out that his involvement with Alien: Covenant is quite minimal when compared to Prometheus:
“I was really there very briefly,” Pearce added. “So I don’t feel it as deeply in my bones as when I’ve worked on something for months on end.”
