The Burning Plain

Story by Jack Foley

CHARLIZE Theron is in final negotiations to star in Ridley Scott’s highly-anticipated Prometheus, the former Alien prequel.

If concluded successfully, the actress will join Noomi Rapace, star of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and Michael Fassbender on the event movie, which has been pencilled in for a June 8, 2012 release by Twentieth Century Fox.

Although plot details are under wraps, Prometheus has morphed from being an Alien prequel to an original sci-fi that, according to Scott, will contain DNA from the Alien series.

Damon Lindelof is working together with Scott on the new script. Find out more
