Spoiler: Rumored details on Katherine Waterston's Alien: Covenant character

Alien: Covenant Ridley Scott Katherine Waterston Michael Fassbender Billy Crudup Banner

Story and character details for Ridley Scott's ALIEN: COVENANT have been hard to come by, however we do know that the film takes place 10 years after the events from PROMETHEUS, with Michael Fassbender reprising his role as David the android, while INHERENT VICE's Katherine Waterston is playing Daniels, the captain of the Covenant spaceship.

Last month we got the first look at Waterston as Daniels, and now The Playlist is claiming that they have some new info on her character. I'd treat this as just a rumor for the time being, but the identity of the character has since been removed from the report at the request of the studio, so there's a very good chance that the site's scoop is legit.

WARNING: Possible spoilers ensue!

Alien: Covenant Still

According to The Playlist's sources, Waterston's character is actually Ellen Ripley's (Sigourney Weaver) mother. The site also says "It should be noted however that Waterston isn’t the lead of the movie, and it’s an ensemble piece like Prometheus.” What are your thoughts on Waterston possibly playing Ripley's mom in ALIEN: COVENANT?

Production is now underway for ALIEN: COVENANT, which has been set to hit theaters on August 4, 2017.
