Charlize Theron joins Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace for Ridley Scott's Prometheus

It’s official that Charlize Theron has joined the cast (which pretty much consists of Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace) of the upcoming film PROMETHEUS to be directed by Ridley Scott. We don’t yet know which role Theron will take, either Elisabeth Shaw or Vickers, so there is still a chance that Angelina Jolie could end up in the film. There’s also still a lot of secrecy surrounding the plot, but Michael Fassbender did make some comments regarding the script. He said:
When I read it, I was like, ‘Well, okay, another Alien. Where do you go with this idea?’ And then I sort of read the script, and it’s new, yet it’s in keeping with the old traditions as well. But there’s a whole new revelation within this film. There’s action in it, but the intelligence is what struck me when I read it. It’s more sort of like the original ones. There are things happening and building, and the intelligence of the first two-thirds of the film gets you ready for the action.
Michael Fassbender may have been in Hollywood for too long because he has the “make a comment but be sure to give absolutely nothing away” thing down pat. PROMETHEUS hits theaters June 8, 2012 so there’s still plenty of time for some loose lipped actor to let a few more details slip.
