Noomi Rapace has gained a love interest for her main character in Ridley Scott's Prometheus. Logan Marshall-Green has been cast in the lead role of Holloway, "a crewman on the space ship and the love interest" of Rapace's character. Marshall-Green was last seen in Devil and Brooklyn's Finest.
The film also stars Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris and Kate Dickie. Shooting begins soon in the UK based on Damon Lindelof's draft of the script, originally written by Jonathan Spaihts.
Scott did reveal the outlines of the film and its genesis as follows:
"While Alien was indeed the jumping off point for this project, out of the creative process evolved a new, grand mythology and universe in which this original story takes place. The keen fan will recognize strands of Alien’s DNA, so to speak, but the ideas tackled in this film are unique, large and provocative. I couldn't be more pleased to have found the singular tale I'd been searching for, and finally return to this genre that's so close to my heart."
The film arrives in theaters on June 8 2012.
