An upcoming 2012 sci-fi epic directed by Ridley Scott (“Alien,” “Blade Runner”), stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Guy Pearce, Kate Dickie, Rafe Spall, Logan Marshall-Green, Benedict Wong, Emun Elliott, Ben Foster, and Patrick Wilson.
The film re-teams Scott with long-time collaborators production designer Arthur Max (“American Gangster”), Oscar-winning costume designer Janty Yates (“Gladiator”), Oscar-winning editor Pietro Scalia (“Black Hawk Down”) and set decorator Sonja Klaus (“Kingdom of Heaven”). The initial draft was written by Jon Spaihts (“The Darkest Hour”) from an idea by Scott, with Damon Lindelof (“Star Trek”) and Scott developing the final screenplay.
Scott returns to the genre he helped define. With PROMETHEUS, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.
