We still don’t for sure if H.R. Giger’s alien designs will feature into it, but Ridley Scott’s not-an-Alien-prequel Prometheus has officially started production in Toronto at Pinewood Studios, The Hollywood Reporter confirms. The shoot will go on for three weeks, though the cast — including confirmed stars Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace — will have plenty more work ahead of them once that’s finished.
Rapace recently revealed that there’s a lengthy production ahead in an interview with MTV. “I’m jumping into that straight off of [Sherlock Holmes 2]. My character’s name is Elizabeth Shaw, and I’ll step into her shoes in March and be her for six months or something,” she said. “It’s quite a long shoot. It’s unbelievable.”
More unbelievable is the awesome fact that we’ll soon be returning to the Alien universe. Whatever this movie might be — prequel, sequel, spin-off, remake, dream sequence, what if? scenario … whatever, it’s a new work of science fiction from one of cinema’s modern masters, set in an enduringly popular universe that he himself created.
