Actors are apparently lined up around the block to get chewed up by the non-Alien-or-are-they? aliens in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus. And the next lucky chosen three are Idris Elba of “The Wire,” Sean Harris of the Red Riding trilogy, and Kate Dickie of Red Road.
Apparently this isn’t your run-of-the-mill casting either, since all 3 actors had to sign secrecy agreements and were only allowed to read the story for the movie by visiting Ridley Scott’s office (maybe Ridley Scott is just a big pervert?). While this level of secrecy means no word on what characters they’ll be playing, it’s also leading some to speculate that the movie we know as Prometheus might actually be an offical Alien movie after all, and this is all just smokescreen designed to keep us off-guard. We’ll just have to wait and see just how much “Alien DNA” will be in Prometheus. (via Collider)
