Charlize Theron Joins Ridley Scott's "Alien" Prequel

Posted: February 12th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Charlize Theron Joins Ridley ScottSubmit Comment
Charlize Theron is in final negotiations to join Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds) in Ridley Scott's "Prometheus," which was originally a prequel to "Alien" but has morphed into a more original sci-fi film.

Theron will play Vickers, one of the main female characters in the movie. She beat out Angelina Jolie for the role. Rapace will be the other female lead, playing scientist Elizabeth Shaw.

Fassbender told MTV that the film definitely has ties to the "Alien" franchise. "There's action in it," he said. "But the intelligence is what struck me when I read it. It's more sort of like the original ones. There are things happening and building, and the intelligence of the first two-thirds of the film gets you ready for the action."

Scott is currently working on the script with Damon Lindelof ("Lost"), and is scheduled to hit theaters on June 8th, 2012.

No but I'm glad to hear that Fassbender is confirmed. With him and Noomi this movie has some hope, don't really care about Theron though.

Was there ever really a doubt that Jolie wouldn't get this part? She is completely wrong for this movie and I don't understand why she was even considered.

working on the script with the lost guys? really?!
spoiler alert: the aliens are god, the starship is an island which can move in time & space and the "intelligence" fassbender's talking about won't be explained.

Lindelof is great with sci-fi. He also helped write and produce Star Trek and Cowboys & Aliens.
I hope they stay true to the horror roots of the film and give us lots of blood. The facehugging and chestbursting scenes of the original films are some of the most memorale gore scenes ever shot.

There are things happening in the movie?

"Ridley Scott's "Prometheus," which was originally a prequel to "Alien" but has morphed into a more original sci-fi film."

Then why did you call the film an Alien prequel in the title?

I loved Alien. I hope this prequel isn't about those gay men who are mind controlled for breeding.

Angelina Jolie is slumming for jobs now? Isn't this beneath her...or is it?

it it ends up not being R ill see something else. and yeah whats the deal it is a prequel but know it is more original, first just done aliens then do the more original thing. and make sure that since it is kinda a prequel make sure you say it on the name of it.

News Flash: Alien prequel or not this movie will fail. If they stick with that idiotic concept of Space Jockeys in 3D this film doesn't have a chance. If Scott is still asking for $200 mill to make this, there's no way in HELL it will be rated R. Unfortunately, we all know Mr. Scott and PG-13 don't work well together. Let's face it, the man lost it sometime ago. Maybe he should just team up with his brother and continue making Denzel Washington movies for the rest of their careers.
