‘Alien: Covenant’ Production Will Take Four Months To Complete Says Actor Demian Bichir

Mar 26, 2016


Alien: Covenant actor Demian Bichir has seemingly been quite vocal and interactive with fans concerning the Prometheus sequel.

He recently posted an image of himself on Instagram getting a head-cast for the film. Leading us to believe the Oscar nominated actor will have a large role in movie, possibly playing another android or engineer.

Demian is back at it and is giving a bit of insight on how long Alien: Covenant could be shooting.

During a recent interview with MovieWeb, Bichir revealed the potential length of the sequel’s shoot, which might be a lot more gruelling than most were expecting and could last four months.

“That’s in discussions as we speak, with production. We don’t know exact dates yet, all I know is it’s going to be a long shoot, almost like The Hateful Eight. It took five months to shoot The Hateful Eight. We spent a couple of months in the mountains, and a couple of months in a studio in Los Angeles, and this will go for about another four months or so. I have very little details at this point, but we will get there. I’m sure we will get together and read, rehearse, everything.”

I wonder if they’ll be even going further here and shooting some extra scenes for Ridley Scott’s purposed sequels to Covenant during this lengthy production.
