When it comes to getting any information from Ridley Scott’s Aliens Sequel oops sorry Original movie Prometheus with ‘Alien DNA’ its like trying to get blood from a stone. For a while we know Prometheus will star Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron and Noomi Rapace but thats been about so far apart from a few weeks of pure speculation especially on Space Jockeys and floating heads flying spaceships.
Today several new pieces of news/rumours have surfaced online today and the biggest curiousity is what the plotline will be with confirmed actors onboard what part they will be playing too. Micahel Fassbenders part has been subject to big speculation on who he will play and when it comes to keeping secrets sometimes it can be like the masonic lodge with the directors the grandmasters with the actors advised/ordered not give anything or too much away when interviewed until there told so.In a interview with EW Fassbenderwas asked would he be playing a Android in the movie, his reply was:
“I don’t know what I can say!……..I don’t want to get into trouble…”
The actor was further asked about the connections of Prometheus to Alien:
“It’s a different story, but it’s also got the traditional roots. ‘Alien’ fans will recognize things in it. It’s not ignoring ‘Alien,’ there’s still a link to that world. But it’s a different story. It’s definitely connected, though.”
There has been variations of that statement in websites but as you can see it still leaves you unanswered and as confused but I’m sure the webs rumour mongers are hard at work stirring up new rumours keep us bloggers in action.
Keeping on the rumour front Bleeding Cool are reporting the nasty xenomorphs will be in Prometheus but not in the form we expect to see them in as they take shape of their unforunate hosts, here’s an extract from what they said:
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 recognisably 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 recognisable. 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.
The final rumour/gossip or what alot of sites are saying ‘confirmed’ news from the unreliable The Daily Mail that 3 new names have been added to the cast. Actors Idris Elba (The Wire, Thor) Sean Harris (Harry Brown) and Kate Dickie (Fish Tank) are the newest members to the cast but no information on what parts they will play as they’ve all singed the disclosure contract.
So if this isnt a Alien’s Prequel why have so much news, rumours, gossip coming out with so many connections to the franchise? If it is a Aliens Prequel why hide the name? As usual until confirmed news appears labels these pieces of news under big fat rumours along with anything else that appears in the coming months.
