Ridley Scott plans 3 more 'Prometheus' sequels, and he has revealed the title of the first.

Ridley Scott's "Alien"

Ridley Scott who recently confirmed that there would be three sequels to his  2012 Alien pseudo-prequel 'Prometheus,' previously revealed the title of his next sequel as "Alien : Paradise Lost."

20th Century Fox has now announced the film will be called "Alien: Covenant."

An official synopsis which can be read below was also released;

"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."

The upcoming sequel will return with  Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace reprising their roles as Shaw and android David, respectively.

The 2012 Prometheus earned slightly over $400 million globally. 'Alien: Covenant'is currently slated for a 2017 release.
