Wow, the rumour mill certainly has been busy the last 24 hours, in particular regarding a possible new cast addition to Ridley Scott's new 'Alien' prequel. The 'Untitled Alien Prequel #1' which will be set in the year 2085 where the Yutani Corporation meets with Weyland Corporation to discuss terraforming, has recently been connected to 'Spiderman' actor James Franco. He's been on his trails promoting his new Danny Boyle ('28 days Later', 'Sunshine') flick '127 Hours' to MovieHole where he did nothing to deny such rumours. Recently both Natalie Portman and Anne Hathaway (below) have been being reported that they are also involved in the new sci-fi horror project.
When asked about the possible inclusion in the new cast Franco simply said "Yeah, that was weird news, huh?" When asked if the rumours are indeed true, Franco maintained his ambiguity stating "I just heard about it on the internet, like yesterday."
Could Anne Hathaway Join the Cast of 'Alien' Prequel?
