Actor Michael Fassbender has confirmed that he will play more than one character in Alien: Covenant.

The 39-year-old actor will not just reprise his Prometheus character as android David but he will also take the role of another robot named Walter, reported Ace Showbiz.

“I am allowed to say I am playing two robots – Walter and David. I think what’s great about it is that Ridley has gone back to the original DNA of Alien, the horror element of that.

“But is also has the scope and the scale of Prometheus. Ridley has cut it already. He is a machine. He is an incredible human being and he was in such good form. He is such an imaginative and mischievous figure.”

Directed by Ridley Scott, the sequel taking place ten years after the events in the previous film will hit theatres Stateside on August 4, 2017. Noomi Rapace is among the returning cast while Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Jussie Smollett and Danny McBride are among the new additions.
