When a sequel to Prometheus was first announced, we all assumed it would involve the further adventures of Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and David (Michael Fassbender), but then Fassbender was cast in the follow-up Alien: Covenant, and Rapace wasn't. Now it seems that the actress was spotted on set in Australia, though her appearance in Ridley Scott's new film remains shrouded in mystery at the moment.
Rapace joins a cast that includes some names we've already heard and a few we haven't yet...
"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."
My assumption would be that these will be flashback scenes to help tie David to the crew of the new ship. Or maybe she'll be in the whole thing, who knows? My expectations couldn't be lower for this since Prometheus was easily one of the dumbest movies I've ever seen, so I suppose they can only go up from there!
