‘Monsters’ Star Circling Both ‘Lincoln’ and ‘Prometheus’

For a $200,000 movie (I love how the budget constantly changes), Monsters has created quite a trajectory for its director and star.

After Gareth Edwards got the job directing Legendary Pictures’ Godzilla, star Scoot McNairy has landed a lead alongside Brad Pitt and a great supporting cast in the Andrew Dominik-directed Cogan’s Trade, reports Deadline. But what’s important to Bloody Disgusting readers is that he’s in contention for a lead in the Ridley Scott-directed qiasi-Alien prequel Prometheus, and is circling the role of Josh Speed in the Timur Bekmambetov-directed Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, both at Fox.
