Michael Fassbender recently chatted to HeroComplex about his latest project, Ridley Scott's Prometheus. The Irish actor is currently in his third week of filming the highly anticipated but much debated project. Hit the jump for the details.
Fassbender stated: "I walk on the set and I feel like I’m walking on a spaceship, It’s breathtaking. All the various panels and screens and it’s just dealing with a top-notch art department and carpenters and the riggers and everything that goes into putting that together. It’s just, well, breathtaking, all of it."
On the his character. ["David" the Android.]
"I feel I’ve got it at my fingertips, it’s there but challenging and, you know, I’m excited. I’ve got a few ideas that I’m running with and I think I’ve got a grasp on it but it’s always something that, organically, moving on its own course. I’m having a lot of fun with it. There’s a lot of interesting quirks and niches to him and I’m having a lot of fun exploring it."
On Ridley Scott:
"It’s great. He’s just so precise and fun and mischievous and just full of interesting and quirky ideas for the character. They come to you in passing but then he lets you run with it and there’s a lot of freedom there. I’m really just enjoying it and everything in general, the whole crew is so veteran and talented from all departments down, the camera, wardrobe, makeup, props, the works you’ve got the cream of the crop and it’s an honor just to be allowed to be part of it."
Prometheus hits theaters June 8, 2012, and also stars Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Kate Dickie, and Logan Marshall-Green.
