Fassbender to star in Prometheus
Michael Fassbender is to join the cast of hotly anticipated 2012 film Prometheus, Ridley Scott’s Alien prequel original film “with Alien DNA”.
Rumours have been bouncing around Hollywood for months about the film, which went by ‘untitled Alien prequel’ for a while before allegedly picking up the name Paradise (along with a claim of Fassbender’s involvement which was subsequently denied).
News of a two-film plan also fell by the wayside, and the original plan of setting the first prequel 30 years before Alien itself is long gone. A plot featuring the mysterious ‘space jockey’ from the original film is presumably dust as well. So! Just to recap, this is what we know so far…
