Scoot McNairy, who recently starred in Gareth Edwards feature debut 'Monsters', is certainly lining up some major projects! His name has now been tied to two highly anticipated genre flicks. Deadline New York are reporting that McNairy is currently in the running for leading roles in both Ridley Scott's upcoming 'Alien'-esque project 'Prometheus' alongside Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace as well as Timur Bekmambetov's 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter', the adaption of the popular Seth Grahame-Smith book. If he gets both or either parts he woud be playing the lead role in 'Prometheus' and the part of Josh Speed in Abe Lincoln. We very much doubt he'll get both due to scheduling but time will tell.
Scoot McNairy Ready To Join the Big Leagues?
'Prometheus' is due to land in theatres on 8 June 2012 and 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' on 22 June 2012.
