Variety reports that Charlize Theron will join Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender in what was originally an “Alien” prequel until it was subsequently not. That was until today when Fassbender told MTV News the film has a “definite connecting vein” with Scott’s classic. The Brit noted, “When I read it, I was like,’Well, okay, another Alien. Where do you go with this idea?’ And then I sort of read the script, and it’s new, yet it’s in keeping with the old traditions as well. But there’s a whole new revelation within this film.”
