Michael Fassbender Lands Role in 'Prometheus'


It looks like things are moving along nicely in Ridley Scott's Prometheus which was once the Alien Prequel, so what I gather it is an Alien movie set in the Alien universe but not connected to the other Alien films, I could be wrong but from what Scott has revealed this is what it sounds like to me.

Anyway according to The Hollywood Reporter Michael Fassbender (300, X-Men: First Class, Eden Lake) will star opposite Noomi Repace in Prometheus, Fassbender will play the role of an android. He was first offered the role last year when it was still known as an Alien prequel and has been in talks ever since and I guess he decided to climb aboard.

As previously posted here before, Ridley Scott gives outlines of the film;

"While Alien was indeed the jumping off point for this project, out of the creative process evolved a new, grand mythology and universe in which this original story takes place. The keen fan will recognize strands of Alien’s DNA, so to speak, but the ideas tackled in this film are unique, large and provocative. I couldn't be more pleased to have found the singular tale I'd been searching for, and finally return to this genre that's so close to my heart."

Prometheus was set to be released in March 9, 2012 but has been moved to a Summer release in June 8, 2012.
