AVP Galaxy blog discovered a Ridley Scott interview with Hungarian web site Mozinezo.hu with certain spoilers and details about actor Guy Pearceâ€™s upcoming role in the film.
Here is what Ridley said in the interview:
â€œWhen the first â€˜Alienâ€™ movie and â€˜Blade Runnerâ€™ 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 â€˜Blade Runnerâ€™, and Weyland-Yutani in â€˜Alienâ€™. They sent the Nostromo spaceship.
The Prometheus is owned by an entrepreneur called Peter Weyland, and is played by Guy Pearce. Thatâ€™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.â€
In an MTV News interview, Pearce revealed he only appeared in the upcoming sci-fi horror film for about a minute.
Thatâ€™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.
â€œPrometheusâ€ will be in theaters on June 8.
