Deadline is reporting the Oscar nominee Demian Bichir (The Hateful Eight, A Better Life, Savages, Machete Kills) has joined the growing and talented cast of Ridley Scott’s Prometheus sequel Alien: Covenant in an unnamed role.

The film set many years after the events of Prometheus focuses on a┬ácolony ship named Covenant, it’s crew, a robot named David (the last surviving crew member of the ship Prometheus), and the Engineers’ homeworld (aka Paradise).
