AUSTRALIA’S New South Wales will play host to the filming of Ridley’s Scott’s Alien: Covenant, following a boost from the Australian government, reports Variety.
Several states were vying for the opportunity, after filming was confirmed in Australia. Director Scott has said that he is planning for a trio of Alien films, with all of them shot in Australia.
Covenant follows on the heels of the first in the new Alien series, Prometheus in 2012, both starring Michael Fassbender.
The upcoming picture will reportedly contribute around $43 million (RM183 million) to the local economy.
