Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. If Ridley Scott's Prometheus wasn't fascinating enough as a lead-in to Scott's own ALIEN the project just got a little more interesting.
JoBlo reports that Ben Foster has joined Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Idris Elba and Charlize Theron in the flick.
This story hits at the same time as Fox's official synopsis, what sounds like a response to the leaked and detailed rundown of the movie that hit yesterday. Fox says the leaked synopsis is way off, but their official synopsis just sounds like the extremely vague and non-spoilery version of the previous one, which to be completely honest fits more with the whispers I've been hearing over the last couple of months.
Fox says that the movie takes a team of explorers and scientists "on a thrilling journey that will test their physical and mental limits and strand them on a distant world where they will discover the answers to our most profound questions and to life's ultimate mystery."
I guess life's ultimate mystery is just what the hell a Space Jockey is. Who knew?
Seriously though, Ben Foster is great, that cast is great and Ridley Scott playing in the xenomorph sandbox again, no matter to what degree, is nothing but good news. Can't wait to start seeing how this one's looking. You?
