Michael Fassbender has signed on to play an android character in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus – the film that has arisen from the ashes of Scott’s aborted Alien prequel – for which Fassbender was being considered.
The 20th Century Fox project also stars Noomi Rapace – who gave Lizbeth Salander life in the trilogy based on Stieg Larssen’s Millenium books.
So, if Fassbender is playing an alien, does that make Rapace the next Ripley? She’s got the chops – and the presence – to pull it off. Suddenly I’m very interested in Prometheus.
