Alien: Covenant official novelization will be written by Alan Dean Foster!

The official Alien: Covenant film novelization will be written by veteran sci-fi author Alan Dean Foster! On September 1st, 2016 Mr. Foster shared an update to his own official website, indicating that one of his next projects will be tackling the unique and original material for Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant. Previously, Foster had penned novelizations for a number of top-tier sci-fi films including Alien, Aliens, Alien 3, The Chronicles of Riddick, The Thing as well as a plethora of Star Trek adaptations! Below are his words, confirming his involvement with Alien: Covenant.

I'm currently writing the novelization, plus some unique original material, for ALIEN:COVENANT. An unusual approach that's never been tried before in a novelization. Look for it, along with the film, next year.

You can browse a full selection of Foster's previous novels and other works on his official website here. The above quote was grabbed from his updates page.

We're very excited to know that Alan Foster will lend his skill once again to the Alien franchise and continue to propel this new series further. As new details arrive for his Alien: Covenant film novelization, we'll be sure to keep you updated!

Yes! Glad to hear it's getting a novelization in the first place. I wonder why Prometheus didn't have one??

I wonder what he means by "some unique original material"? Hm..

Prometheus did have a novelization wich was written by Joe Spies and Damon Lindelof,sadly it was only released in Japan.

Btw its nice to see A:C getting a novelization,im just wondering what differences will it have from a film.

Really? Well, why no English translation??

@Patient Leech maybe the Alien:COVENENT will have English translation.It is'nt confirmed by Alan Dean Foster.

I think it's safe to assume this will be written in English.

About Alien: Covenant

Alien: Covenant Movie

Release Date:

May 19th, 2017

Plot Synopsis:

Ridley Scott returns to the universe he created in ALIEN with ALIEN: COVENANT, the second chapter in a prequel trilogy that began with PROMETHEUS -- and connects directly to Scott’s 1979 seminal work of science fiction. 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.
