After spending a little over two months at Pinewood Studios, Ridley Scott is moving the Prometheus shoot to Iceland, where he’ll be filming at the base of the Hekla volcano, which was rumored to be on the verge of eruption mere days ago, and the Dettifoss waterfall. The location isn’t as important as what Scott says is being shot there. “It will be 15 minutes in total, if all goes to plan,” the secretive director said. “We are shooting the beginning of time.”
That fits pretty nicely into the leaked plot outline, which has yet to be confirmed. According to the insider, “Archaeological digs in Africa reveal alien artifacts that humans were genetically engineered by a advanced alien race (space jockeys). These ‘Alien Gods’ also terraformed Earth in order to make it habitable for their human creations.” Does that mean Iceland is doubling for the dark continent? Or are these flashback scenes that are going to based around the terraforming of Earth?
Ice News also claims that Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace will be involved with the shoot, which raises even more questions about how these sequences fit into the timeline of the film, which is supposedly set in 2058. Does this mean that the top-billing actors will play alien gods? Or are they the archaeologists who find the dig? Do the archaeologists work for Weyland Corp.?
How this all fits together is anyone’s guess at this point. All I know is that the air of mystery surrounding Prometheus is making me even more excited for its June 8, 2012 release.
