Twentieth Century Fox are keeping the story of Ridley Scott’s Prometheus heavily guarded, and rightly so for this will be one of the biggest films of 2012. Scott’s Alien Prequel-now not Alien Prequel and a whole new beast- is underway and has had a second draft for a script handed in by Lost writer Damon Lindelof. No one is yet sure of the true details of if indeed this will be a prequel or not, originally it was due to be a prequel and now Scott has said ideas and scripts have lead into the film becoming a stand-alone story but closely based on the Alien plot. No one but Scott really knows what will come of this film, but he has said he is very excited to be back doing sci-fi again and has said this film will be scary and very dark. Hopefully this will make up for the let down that was Avatar last year.
So far a pretty impressive cast have signed on, including Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Michael Fassenbender, Idris Elba, Sean Harris andKatie Dickie. The newest member who has just signed up is Logan Marshall-Green who starred in last years brilliant Devil. He will play Holloway, a crewman and love interest of Elizabeth Shaw (played by Noomi Rapace) on board their spaceship. No more news is known but here at Horror Cult Films we are following the story very closely and will keep you posted!
