Our friends over at AVP Galaxy recently reported that James Franco was going to be apart of the Alien: Covenant cast, after we reported on him passing on the lead role in Shane Black’s The Predator.
This has been seemingly confirmed in a new interview with Franco conducted by Hey U Guys.
We’ve transcribed the interview, read his last line before the interviewer interupts him.
“The news is out I guess [Laughs]…umm I don’t know if they’re trying to trick me into talking about it.”
“Yes, I remember watching Alien as a kid for the first time and that was huge, I still watched it in the past month over at Tarantino’s theatre, such a good movie. It’s so tight full of tention it’s really just a horror movie in space. Yes, it’s great to be apart of it.“
Alien: Covenant is set for release on May 19th, 2017.
