Demian Bichir is the latest addition to Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant,  the sequel to 2012's Prometheus.

The Fox film will see the return of Michael Fassbender in the role of the amoral android from the first pic and the addition of franchise newcomers Katherine Waterston and Danny McBride.

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but a shoot in Australia is being prepped. 

The Oscar-nominated Bichir, repped by CAA, was last seen in Quentin Tarantino's ensemble Western The Hateful Eight and will be seen next in the drama Low Riders, alongside Eva Longoria.
