Good news: she's a big part of the saga, and shouldn't be swept aside even though some people found her convictions annoying.

Bad news: if they're rewriting this film while they're filming it, after all these years of writing, we're in big trouble.

[EDIT: Holy cow! 1000 posts!  :D]

Well, Alien was pretty flexibly produced, even during filming. Budget constraints and all.

True, but it can be argued that Alien3 (which I love) suffered a dissimilar fate.

They won't be rewriting it.  She's been in Sydney for weeks.  This reveal - if it's true - was bound to happen sooner or later. 

I love Noomi as an actor but felt she was mis-cast in the role of Shaw.  I don't feel that she brought any of her acting strengths we've seen her perform elsewhere, particularly 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo'; especially given the material she had to work with in 'Prometheus'.

Nonetheless, I'm glad we will see her return in her role to lend some much needed continuity between 'Prometheus' and 'ALIEN: Covenant'.  So glad to hear this News overall.  I don't think it will surprise anyone that she's appearing (reprising) as a major role for the new movie.

...now just waiting for this News confirmation from Official Sources, that is, 20th Century Fox.

You saw a fuzzy black blob in a photo and deduced that it was Noomi Rapace.

Holy moly... maybe this smudge of jam on my toast really IS the face of Jesus!  :D

Hot chick with decapitated robot head for companion both on board an Alien spacecraft capable of destroying worlds...  Maybe Scott will change the title yet again and rename the movie 'ALIEN: LEXX'. 

BWAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!!

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.  - Written by Twentieth Century Fox

That Synopsis is still strange! If Shaw is in the movie how can David be sole inhabitant of "Paradise"???
That can prove my theory that Shaw isnt on the same place with David? :o ???

It's interesting - what is she going to do? I feel her "there is only death here now" transmission will be intercepted... and the crew of the Covenant will say, "let's go there!"  :D

I rewatched Prometheus yesterday, and I think she's really good in it.  Particularly the surgery scene.
