Idris Elba recently chatted with DigitalSpy and confirmed that he is already preparing for his role in Ridley Scott's highly anticipated Prometheus. The British actor also discussed working with Scott and Prometheus' highly debated relationship with the original Alien. Hit the jump for the details.
"I really can't say too much about Prometheus, but yes, I am in it. I literally am in preparation for it now as we speak. I'm a huge Ridley Scott fan, this is my second time working with him. He's a majestic filmaker. He's like royalty. He attracts the best people to work with him. Actors as well as film crews. It's a joy to work with him. I'll be there all summer working on Prometheus out at Pinewood. I mean, you know, if you've read any interviews with what Ridley says, he says you can't ignore the fact he made a mastermind in 1976. A mastermind. Prometheus is in some ways connected to that, yes of course. Is it in storyline? I'm not at liberty to say. I will tell you that if you can imagine a young Ridley Scott making a film like Alien in 1975, released in 1978, and just imagine what he can do now."
