What a whirlwind this new “Prometheus” production has become for Noomi fans, according to Deadline. Even though Noomi Rapace emerged from Prometheus as one of the few survivors and the one who seemed most to want to follow the adventure forward with Michael Fassbender’s character, it was long reported she would not be back to reprise her role as Elizabeth Shaw in Ridley Scott’s next installment Alien: Covenant. Maybe that has changed. Sources say Rapace is in Australia and on the set to shoot weeks worth of scenes in Scott’s film, which brings back Fassbender’s robot character and has a cast that includes Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride and Demian Bichir. Info is on lockdown, so we’ll have to wait for the film to be released August 4, 2017, by Fox to see how it all worked out.

Although Ridley Scott recently said that Noomi Rapace would reprise her role — albeit briefly — as Dr. Elizabeth Shaw in Alien: Covenant, the director has now determined that the actress will actually not be returning for the upcoming Prometheus sequel/Alien prequel. Scott told the Daily Mail that Rapace will not be returning for Alien: Covenant, and added that he’s still casting the main characters for the film, which includes Fassbender reprising his role as mischievous synthetic David and his Steve Jobs co-star Katherine Waterston as the leader of a new crew of explorers. The director also previously revealed that the new film is set about 10 years after the events of Prometheus, when a derelict crew happens upon a seemingly uncharted paradise and soon discovers that David is the planet’s only inhabitant — which sounds pretty unnerving. Scott has also promised that the new trilogy of films will explore the origins of both the Xenomorphs and the Engineers, and will feature all forms of Xenomorph from egg to chest-burster to Queen. Alien: Covenant begins shooting this spring for a 2017 release date.

Ridley Scott’s last update on his Prometheus follow-up Alien: Covenant contained the surprising intel that, while Noomi Rapace is set to show up again as plucky scientist Elizabeth Shaw, she’ll only get a “minor part” this time, rather than the starring role. That’s now backed up by the news that Katherine Waterston has been cast in what sounds like the lead. Rebecca Ferguson had previously been linked to the character – possibly named “Daniels” – but Waterston is now locked in. She’ll also be in next year’s Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, and this year appeared with Joaquin Pheonix in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice and with Michael Fassbender in Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs. Fassbender will reprise his android David in Covenant. Scott has also recently confirmed that, following the curveball of Prometheus, Convenant will be a full-on Alien movie. “There was always this discussion:” he says. “Is Alien, the character, the beast, played out or not?” Apparently not, since this time “We’ll have them all: egg, face-hugger, chest-burster, then the big boy.” Alien: Covenant is set to start shooting in March next year for a 2017 release.

Here’s a bummer for everyone who was expecting Noomi to headline the Prometheus sequel “Alien: Covenant”. These last days, one of the big concerns was coming about was the lack of word on Rapace’s character Dr. Elizabeth Shaw and whether or not we’d be seeing her return. After all, Prometheus ended with Shaw taking David’s (Michael Fassbender) head onto a ship where they began their travels to try and find the Engineer’s home planet. However, talking with Screen Daily, director Ridley Scott confirmed that Rapace would return, although only for a “…minor part“. Scott plans on making this new Alien film the first in a brand new trilogy, one that will eventually, “…drive into the back entrance of the film in 1979.” Alien: Covenant is expected to hit theaters on October 6th, 2017.

Article courtesy Empire. As Sir Ridley Scott prepares for the launch of his enormously satisfying sci-fi flick, The Martian, he’s been talking, mostly to HeyUGuys, about his next movie: the sequel to Prometheus. Yesterday, he revealed that the title of the film was actually Alien: Paradise Lost, linking it directly to the franchise he started back in 1979. But it also set tongues wagging: what did this title mean? How do things tie into the Alien world? What does this mean for Neill Blomkamp’s mooted Alien sequel? And what the heck is going to happen to the disembodied head of Michael Fassbender’s David? Well, we spoke to Sir Ridley this afternoon (hear the full interview on next week’s Empire Podcast) and got some answers to those burning questions. On the title change, Sir Ridley said it had been a long time coming. At one point, Paradise was a possible title for Prometheus, but its origins stretch back further than that: “Years ago, I kept mulling over what Alien 2 could be. I was fiddling around with some ideas. I was always fascinated with why this thing [the xenomorph] would be made, by whom, and for what purpose? The planet it was on – and I was looking at the dark side of the moon – would be called Paradise. Paradise is a very ominous word…” Read More

Article courtesy The Playlist: At this rate, all we need is a formal announcement from 20th Century Fox, because it really does look like “Prometheus 2” is happening very soon. Rumors first surfaced earlier this month when it was reported that production would begin in January, and a couple of weeks later there was chatter that Ridley Scott was insisting to the studio that his movie be made first before Neill Blomkamp’s “Alien 5.” Now comes word from the man himself that he’s returning space following “The Martian.” Empire recently got the chance to talk to Scott and Matt Damon about their upcoming “The Martian,” and when talked turned to the release date of the film being moved ahead (it was originally scheduled for next spring), an interesting revelation surfaced. “Ridley was done with the movie about two weeks after we shot!” Damon said about the director’s cool-under-fire reaction to the change. “I was already on to my next movie!” Scott stated. “I was starting to look for locations for my next movie, which is ‘Prometheus 2.’ ” So, if “Prometheus 2” is indeed shooting in January, it seems some legwork has already quietly been done. Again Fox hasn’t said anything yet but it seems it’s just a formality at this point. So, a return to the world of “Prometheus” in 2017? Looks like that’s a safe assumption.
