Noomi Rapace Won’t Reprise Prometheus Role
The road to get a sequel made to Alien prequel Prometheus has been a tough one, and it’s just got tougher. Ridley Scott, the creative mind behind the Alien series, has confirmed that Noomi Rapace will not appear in ‘Alien: Covenant’ in an Interview with the Daily Mail, saying ‘We’re still casting the main roles.’
It’s a strange twist of fate from Fox’s statement in November of last year that Rapace and Fassbender would return for the sequel, joined by series newcomer Katherine Waterstone.
I’m hearing that Rapace is adamantly against returning for the sequel and although Scott and the studio are pretending that she only had a minor role, anyway, the role in recent drafts of the screenplay was actually considered to be major.
