Guy Pearce’s Role Revealed in ‘Prometheus’

The studio still insists that “Prometheus” is not the prequel to 1979’s “Alien,” but it sure existed in the same universe.

AVP Galaxy blog discovered a Ridley Scott interview with Hungarian web site with certain spoilers and details about actor Guy Pearce’s upcoming role in the film.

Here is what Ridley said in the interview:

“When the first ‘Alien’ movie and ‘Blade Runner’ were made, I thought that in the near future the world will be owned by large companies. This is why we have the Tyrell Corporation in ‘Blade Runner’, and Weyland-Yutani in ‘Alien’. They sent the Nostromo spaceship.

The Prometheus is owned by an entrepreneur called Peter Weyland, and is played by Guy Pearce. That’s the connection between the two films, and nothing more. Prometheus is a new film, a new world, and is full of new ideas. And of course new monsters as well.”

In an MTV News interview, Pearce revealed he only appeared in the upcoming sci-fi horror film for about a minute.

That’s another proof the two films will share the same universe. It may or may not be a prequel, but it sure comes close.

The film also stars Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Noomi Rapace, Patrick Wilson and Logan Marshall-Green.

“Prometheus” will be in theaters on June 8.
