'Prometheus' has been creating much discussion of late. Mainly because sexy starlet Charlize Theron (below) has hopped on board the project alongside 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' star Noomi Rapace. But the new Ridley Scott sci-fi project, which originally was set to be a prequel to his original 'Alien' space-based horror flick, has gone a long way to confound and confuse everyone. First it's a prequel, and now it's a 'standalone' movie. Yet, according to star Michael Fassbender, it will certainly be tied to the 'Alien' universe. Check out what the 'X-Men: First Class' actor had to say below when he spoke with MTV in a recent interview.
"Prometheus' is absolutely connected to 'Alien.' Oh, absolutely. There's a definite connecting vein. You realize you're part of something else, but it's definitely in keeping with the old ones. When I read it, I was like, 'Well, okay, another Alien. Where do you go with this idea?' And then I sort of read the script, and it's new, yet it's in keeping with the old traditions as well. But there's a whole new revelation within this film. The first 'Alien' [movies], they were thrillers, Something's going on. It's creeping, it's sinister. Things are happening, it's building, [and there are] different sorts of intrigues and politics going on between the different relationships on board. There's action in it, but the intelligence is what struck me when I read it. It's more sort of like the original ones. There are things happening and building, and the intelligence of the first two-thirds of the film gets you ready for the action. I was thinking about doing some yoga, some Pilates. I need to sort out my posture a little bit. I want to be as tall as I can standing next to those aliens!"
