Ridley Scott revealed to the Daily Mail Online that Idris Elba [The Wire], Sean Harris [Red Riding Trilogy] and Katie Dickie [Red Road] have been cast in his highly anticipated sci-fi behemoth: Prometheus. There are no details on who they will be playing but the trio will join Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron and Michael Fassbender. Up to this the most recent casting news had been Scoot McNairy [Monsters] being in advanced talks to join Prometheus as the love interest for Rapace's scientist "Elizabeth Shaw" but no confirmation has emerged. Hit the jump to find out more.
Scott also revealed to the site the measures he has taken to keep the script a secret. Every Actor not only had to sign secrecy clauses, but were only allowed to read the story if they visited Ridley's production office [one exception was made, when a security courier flew to an actor’s foreign location and stood guard for two hours while the screenplay was perused.] "I was insistent that the script not leak onto the internet, where it gets dissected out of context, which spoils it for everyone." Scott also told the site thats filming starts in three weeks. "It's the story of creation, the gods and the man who stood against them. It's not a small film," Scott stated. "I'm using the giant James Bond 007 stage at Pinewood and six other sound stages to film it." Scott did reiterate once again that the Film is not a prequel to Alien, Prometheus hits theaters June 3rd, 2012. Bring on the release of the official synopsis.
