The latest entry in the epic saga that is the PROMETHEUS project, we have some new cast to connect with the film, and an unnamed source close to the film has some insight to share. The film is shaping up, more and more, in my eyes to not be a direct sequel or prequel but to take place in the same universe, thus serving as a companion piece to the Alien series. More after the jump!...
Sean Harris (Isolation, Creep), Kate Dickie (Outcast), and Idris Elba (28 Weeks Later, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance) will be alongside , Charlize Theron , Noomi Rapace, and Michael Fassbender in Ridley Scott's latest sci-fi thiller. With filming to begin in 3 weeks, Scott is being extra secure when it comes to who reads the script, not wanting it to leak on the internet. The actors not only had to sign secrecy clauses, but were only allowed to read the story if they visited Ridley’s production office. (One exception was made, when a security courier flew to an actor’s foreign location and stood guard for two hours while the screenplay was perused.)
Some unnamed sources have stepped up, and let some interesting details about the film slip out as they were probably packing their packs to get out of Scott’s way in he found out they discussed any aspect of the film. The following is what was told in full.
"[Prometheus] has the Alien aliens in it. The catch, though, is that you might not recognize them – at least, not at first. Remember how the alien took on canine qualities after gestating in a dog? You may even suppose that the first film’s alien was so recognizably humanoid because it had grown in a human. The same applies here: generation by generation, the creature mutates.
"As Prometheus begins, the xenomorph is not too recognizable. Sure, it has that alien DNA that Scott and Fassbender teasingly referred to, but it’s missing … well, it’s missing human DNA. Or dog DNA. All you have to do is imagine how it might look if it were to mix DNA with another alien species ... and I think we’re starting to work it all out."Source: Horrorbid.com
