Some new bits from Collider. During the press day for 12 Years a Slave, Steve asked Michael Fassbender the status of Prometheus 2, and Fassbender quickly responded, âI donât know.â Today at the junket for X-Men: Days of Future Past, the question came up again, and this time he said the project is a go, although he didnât know when it would begin filming. When we last reported on the film, it seemed like filming was already given the greenlight, but then another report said that there was no release date, itâs unclear if Ridley Scott would return to direct, and that theyâve only hired a new writer (Michael Green). Itâs still unclear if Scott wants to get in the directorâs chair again, but Fassbenderâs confirmation is still a step forward in the projectâs development. I, for one, am excited to see the continuing adventures of Davidâs disembodied head. The complete article can be read here.
According to Deadline, Noomi Rapace is in negotiations to join director Mikael Hafstrom in Unlocked, the spy thriller produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Georgina Townsley and Erik Howsam. The Peter OâBrien-scripted thriller made the Black List, and Rapace would play a female CIA interrogator duped into getting a terrorist to provide key information to the wrong side. It puts her at the center of a plot to launch a biological attack in London. It was originally set at Warner Bros, but the studio let it go and itâs being mounted as an indie film. Rapace, who broke through in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo trilogy, last starred in the Ridley Scott-directed Prometheus, and next stars with Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman and Jason Clarke in the Daniel Espinosa-directed Child 44 for Summit Entertainment.
Fox Searchlight has released the theatrical trailer for “The Drop”, starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace and James Gandolfini in his final film. Directed by “Bullhead” filmmaker Michael Roskam, “The Drop” follows an ex-con trying to go straight, working a legit job in a bar, whose life gets upended by a robbery gone wrong. It’s potent stuff, particularly for this Brooklyn-set tale, and Roskam knew he had a great duo in Hardy and Gandolfini, according to a recent article by USA Today. “I could see there was a bit of a smile between them. It was like, ‘We’re going to nail this, right?’ ” Roskam said of the production. “And they did this intense scene and were just spot on. There was a beautiful connection between those two guys.” You can watch the trailer in the video archive, screencaptures have been added to the photo gallery.
According to The Wrap, veteran scribe Michael Green has been hired to rewrite the untitled âPrometheusâ sequel for 20th Century Fox, TheWrap has learned. Multiple sources have told TheWrap that the âUntitled Ridley Scott Projectâ that 20th Century Fox announced it will release in March 2016 is âPrometheus 2,â although the film may not ultimately use that title. An insider told TheWrap that production is scheduled to start this fall, after Scott has delivered his Moses movie âExodusâ to Fox. âPrometheusâ served as an âunofficialâ prequel to Scott’s seminal 1979 sci-fi movie âAlien,â and the sequel that Green will write aims to be much more âalien-yâ and in line with the terrifying tone of past films in the franchise. Additionally, the sequel is expected to feature multiple âDavidâ androids, which means there will be more than one Michael Fassbender on screen at the same time, according to an individual familiar with the project.
