Charlize Theron Cast Prometheus
Charlize Theron Cast Prometheus. It has finally been confirmed that Academy Award winning actress Charlize Theron will be joining the cast of Ridley Scott’s Prometheus. However, her character details have not been disclosed.
The project started out as a prequel to the first Alien movie, but developed into something completely original. Theron will join actress Noomi Rapace, who will play lead character Elizabeth Shaw. In addition, Michael Fassbender will be playing an android. According to reports, Theron beat out Angelina Jolie for the role.
“While Alien was indeed the jumping off point for this project, out of the creative process evolved a new, grand mythology and universe in which this original story takes place,” stated Scott in a January 15th press release announcing the film’s new name.
“The keen fan will recognize strands of Alien’s DNA, so to speak, but the ideas tackled in this film are unique, large and provocative. I couldn’t be more pleased to have found the singular tale I’d been searching for, and finally return to this genre that’s so close to my heart,” he added.
Theron is a South African actress best known for her role of serial killer Aileen Wuornos in the film Monster, in which she won an Academy Award. In addition, she was nominated for numerous awards for her performance in North Country. She played the role of Josey Aimes.Entertainment News Join The Conversation
