Very little is known about the upcoming Alien: Covenant, and while the latest photo from the set offers little in the way of revelation, it does show a familiar face: Ridley Scott.
The Alien social media channels posted a behind-the-scenes image of the director and series creator addressing the crew. The cryptic caption reads: “Creator. Creation. #AlienCovenant.”
Scott has previously said that Covenant will serve as the start of a new Alien trilogy. It’s set to take place after the events of Prometheus the titular ship arrives on a planet they believed to be paradise, but the only inhabitant is the synthetic David (Michael Fassbender), a survivor of the failed Prometheus expedition.
Katherine Waterston is playing Daniels, a member of the Covenant voyage; a first look at her character was released last month. The film, due in theaters Aug. 4, 2017, also stars Danny McBride, Demián Bichir, Jussie Smollett, Carmen Ejogo, Amy Seimetz, and Callie Hernandez.
