When Ridley Scott’s Prometheus was still the Alien prequel, there were rumors that Scott wanted Swedish actress Noomi Rapace as his star, the studio wanted Charlize Theron though.
When it was finally announced that the project would be an original piece and Noomi Rapace was confirmed to star, however, it was reported that Theron, along with Angelina Jolie was being considered for the film’s other major female lead.
Charlize Theron is now in final negotiations for a role in Ridley Scott’s return to sci-fi. While it isn’t specified the role, the other major female role Elizabeth Shaw, whom Rapace will be playing, is a character named Vickers.
That presumably Theron will be playing. Michael Fassbender will also be starring in the film.
Scheduled for a release date on June 8, 2012.
