You're shooting Alien: Covenant right now. What can you tell us about it?

I’m the pilot of the spaceship Covenant, which is a colonization ship, searching for a planet where we might start life anew. I run the ship.

Are you in a harness for eight hours a day, yelling at a green screen?

No, I didn't know if it would be all green screen, but most of the stuff is practical effects: when you're running from an alien it's really a dude in an alien suit coming after you! The sets are incredible and you're in them: We go through some inclement weather at one point on the spaceship and this whole gigantic set is on a gimbal, shaking up and down. You don't have to use your imagination.

What’s the most impressive thing about Ridley Scott?

He's got so much energy, and he shoots everything with four cameras. We move through stuff fast. When I got here some people said, "Oh man, he does two takes, three takes, tops," but I love it. It creates this attitude on set of, like, "You better f**king come with it because you've got two shots — you better bring it."


Original article is on their website, and for some reason I can't copy it, plus the interview pasted oddly but you get the idea. That's everything that is Covenant related.

Really pleased that there will be a live practical Alien in the movie, just like the original!

I'm kinda surprised he's not the ship's botanist or demolitions expert.

Looks like you were right about him being the pilot of the ship Corporal. Although the fact that he "runs" it could also imply that he's the captain as well.

Also good to hear that we'll be getting dudes in suits again.

Tom was the captain, though. Pilot could be something like Ferro from aliens

I really like how they are exploring this.  It wasn't really touched on in Aliens how or why they set up a colony on that planet.  Maybe there are lots of these ships searching for planets in the Alien universe.  Exciting possibilities.

Yay for me!  ;D He could definitely be both. I'd buy into a pilot/captain role.

Pairs up quite nicely with the hand we saw today.

I feel like McBride wont be playing any overt comic relief.

It would be interesting to see him play a serious role. He knows a lot of about film, too, and I think he respects Scott a lot, and will want to try and do the best possible job that he can; it's not everyday you get to be in a Scott movie, after all.

Well I wasn't implying so with the marijuana use. Wasn't there a suggesting that it was to be used medicinally when the crew come out of hibernation. The captain would insist they all consume it for there own well being!
