Alien: Covenant screenwriter John Logan has been featured in the latest issue of Total Film magazine, discussing his work on Ridley Scott's Prometheus sequel! Further clarifying the inclusion of the Facehugger and Chestburster, Logan expresses his excitement and enthusiasm for being attached to the Alien: Covenant project and discussed his relationship with director Ridley Scott. Despite being completely fresh to the world of Alien, Logan believes he, as well as original screenwriters Michael Green and Jack Paglen have created a story worthy of the mantle and one which will immerse itself into the Alien universe more seamlessly than its predecessor, Prometheus did.
"We had such a good time on Gladiator. We’ve been friends since then and we’ve tried to find things to do," explains Logan, was brought on by Scott to rework the original Alien: Covenant script by Michael Green and Jack Paglen. "I’m completely fresh to it, but I love Alien."
"If you’re doing an Alien movie, and telling the story of the Alien monster, you’re going to have, at some point, a face-hugger and a chest-burster-that’s the biology and creation of a xenomorph."
