Fox Gets What They Want: Charlize Theron Heads to Alien Planet in ‘Prometheus’

Valentine’s Day must be right around the corner as director Ridley Scott and Twentieth Century Fox both got what they wanted for Prometheus, the forthcoming re-titled Alien prequel.

While Scott scored The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo star Noomi Rapace, and Michael Fassbender, Fox just announced that Charlize Theron has inked a deal to star in the film shooting for an June 8, 2012 release.

Theron, who got her start in horror films such as Children of the Corn III: Urban Harvest and The Devil’s Advocate, is making her return to genre having just locked down a deal to play “The Evil Queen” in Snow White and the Huntsman, along with a role in Mad Max: Fury Road.

I’m just excited I get to go find a super hot pic of Theron from years ago (inside!)
