Lots has been written and rumored lately about Ridley Scott’s plan for an Alien prequel – and Noomi has been in steady talks as the frontrunner to play the young Ellen Ripley. Reportedly, this plan has been dropped – but Scott and Rapace move on with another collaboration. According to Deadline, Twentieth Century Fox has officially announced that the new Ridley Scott production as “Prometheus” is now bound for worldwide release on March 9th, 2012. Returning to science fiction filmmaking for the first time since Blade Runner, Scott will direct this epic. Of the five major roles to be cast, Noomi Rapace is the first actor signed to star (as “Elizabeth Shaw”), and it’s, again, rumored that Angelina Jolie and Charlize Theron are both circling the other big female lead (“Vickers”).

Don’t miss the Critics Choice Movie Awards, airing tonight at 9pm/et on VH1. Noomi is nominated as Best Actress for “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” alongside Annette Bening, Natalie Portman, Nicole Kidman, Michelle Williams and Jennifer Lawrence. This will mark Noomi’s first appearance at a televised American awards ceremony, and – unless the Oscars don’t surprise us with some Noomi love – will probably be her only one since her performance was overlooked by most other award juries in the USA. Be sure to find all results, pictures and video on the Critics Choice Awards here tomorrow!

According to the Guardian, Stieg Larsson’s ‘s partner Eva Gabrielsson plans to finish the fourth novel he left uncompleted on his death. According to early details culled from Gabrielsson’s memoir of her life with Larsson, Millennium, Stieg and Me, which is set for publication in France and Scandinavia next week, Larsson had written 200 pages of a fourth novel in his internationally successful Millennium series before he died.
