Details for the Ridley Scott-directed, Damon Lindelof-scripted Prometheus have been scarce. Up until now, all that’s known about the project, which serves as a stand-alone companion piece to Scott’s 1979 classic Alien, is that it involves a team of scientists stranded on a planet with hostile inhabitants.
But, now, Academy Award-winning actress Charlize Theron is shedding a little light on the movie. She tells Total Film:
I actually don’t play the heroine in it; that’s Noomi Rapace. I play somewhat of a villain in it. She’s not a believer, she’s not a scientist, she is the red tape that everyone has to go through.
She’s working with the company that’s sponsoring this whole thing, and you can feel she definitely has an agenda, which we pick up in the third act. She’s more quiet thunder.
Actually … she’s Paul Reiser.
Prometheus will be in theaters on June 8, 2012.
