A new casting call for Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant has been posted and is looking for actors between the ages of 8 and 40, who are both strong, agile but also very skinny. Tall or short, being very skinny is a requirement, which leads us to believe these actors will be playing the roles of either Xenomorphs (or something similar) or women/children/malnourished Engineers who are stranded on their desolate home world. Though, the likelihood of the casting call being for Xenomorph-like beings seems more likely.

As more details are revealed we'll be sure to keep you posted!

If you're in Australia and attending the casting call, let us know any details you're provided! You can email us at [email protected] !


The Alien franchise is taking a dramatic turn at 20th Century Studios, now owned by Disney. Currently there are two major Alien projects in development - a new Alien TV series by Noah Hawley and a new, stand-alone Alien movie being directed by Fede Alvarez. Both of which will be taking the franchise in a new direction - moving away from the Alien prequel direction Ridley Scott set out to pursue back in 2012.

I would say that it could well be Xenomorph Related, but thats just a assumption from the clues...  The Synopsis seems to omit the Engineers and from what we have seen the Engineers are portrayed as Tall and Quite Well Built, and althought they was originally going to explore the Engineers and the Hierarchy above them, we know that Ridley and Fox were not to pleased with the Frail Elders from the first movie and its one reason maybe they was cut.

Also it sugests a supporting role, and so i would assume that they do not mean The Covenants Crew... the biggest clue is that being Thin is a must and "Other Skills: Fast in Movement. Acrobats, Dancers, Gymnasts, Contortionists, Cirque du Soleil type performers"

To be this sounds like they are after people who will in somepart be playing the Monster Suit, Xenomorph related Organism.  But why do they want small and tall?  Maybe different stages?  or maybe size does not matter because they can use Camera Trickery like they do in Lord of the Rings and The Hobit movies... which Prometheus could have used for its Engineers but sadly they never.

Oh Awsome Cover Art by the way.... this kind of Ultramorph would be Epic.


XenomorphMember1330 XPJan-28-2016 5:13 PM

Wow! This movie is so close to happening. Should be pictures anytime!

I agree, probably xeno's.....I don't think the Engineers want anything to do with them. Probably left Paradise because of the xeno infestation.

I agree Big Dave, imagine seeing that on the big screen. That would be terrifying...

Funny but a a little bit of Truth behind?

The Ultramorph looks very cool on this art work and the skretch from H.R Giger but i think his Head is to large for the shoulder and disturbe him in movement. Realy Hard to realized that Problem in the coming movie. It doesnt make Sense in the nature but again.... It looks awesome ^^

Big Dave: To me small and tall suggest different stages of the Xeno or something close to it.


It would be interesting to see an ultra morph, it could be kind of scary if they do it right. Hopefully we will see some of the Engineers and their relation to the Xenos. We have seen the Xenos before and having them in the movie could be interesting if done right (meaning a new version f it). How about having a Xeno in a size of dinosaur (I got that idea from looking at the picture)? Dinosaurs had different sizes but you can use them for inspiration.

Yes that is more like I expect a higher level xeno would look like and yes hope this is in the next one :D . Though I expect the demi god to be even more crazy looking possibly doesnt have one form or exist in one place at one time type level.


Were is that picture from?


NeomorphMember1691 XPFeb-02-2016 8:37 AM

djamelameziane: Maybe it doesn't need to be very Xeno-ish at all (the demi-God)? It could also be something different that we haven't seen before. We have seen the Xeno in various styles and if we speak about order of creation and if the Engineers create different life forms then the Xenomorph doesn't even need to be at the top of the hierarchy so to speak. For the next Prometheus movie it would be cool if they could come up with something new that doesn't look like the Xenos but that are as interesting.


FacehuggerMember143 XPFeb-03-2016 6:47 AM

Well I got one theory the black goo is from the demi god ridley talked of and because everything that comes from it ends up looking xeno ish I assume the demi god may have some links even if the are vague to the xeno designs though on a whole different level like I say multiple dimesions or something crazy. Anyway this picture I would say might be what a xeno made from a engineer might look like or elder possibly. And yes hopfully lots of new very different alien things in the next one please!
