While there were reports that Twentieth Century Fox and director Ridley Scott were at odds over rating and budget for his Alien prequel, it still appears the studios is pushing the rejuvenated franchise into casting. Deadline reports that the studio and Scott have had general meetings with a number of actresses, with the list including the studio’s Wall Street 2 star Carey Mulligan, but another intriguing possibility is that Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) also met and left a strong impression. The actress met Scott and Fox before she signed on to star with Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law in the Sherlock Holmes sequel. Do you see either of these actresses in a Ripley-esque role?
