Michael Fassbender To Star Opposite Noomi Repace In PROMETHEUS
Michael Fassbender, of Inglourious Basterds and 300 fame, has just been tapped to star opposite Noomi Repace (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) in Ridley Scott’s PROMETHUS. Fassbender will play an Android in the film, which will be directed by Scott and has been slated for a high-profile summer release date of June 8, 2012. The film was to originally supposed to be an Alien prequel slated for a release date of March 2012. Although details of the film remain secret, there are rumors from Scott that it will involve “alien DNA.”
In addition to Fox’s X-Men: First Class, Fassbender has several other films in the works, including Jane Eyre and A Dangerous Method. He was offered the role of Prometheus last year, and remained in talks with the project throughout the summer and fall. The actor was also in involved in talks to star in Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman, a role that ultimately ended up going to his Dangerous Method co-star Viggo Mortensen once he officially booked his role in Prometheus.
Michael Fassbender has been one of my favorite actors since 300, and I’m really excited for all the film opportunities he’s been getting. Prometheus should be a really good film! Are you looking forward to it?
