Actress Rebecca Ferguson (Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation) is reportedly being courted by Fox to appear in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus sequel, Alien: Paradise Lost. According to a report by Deadline, Ferguson has a lot of fans at the studio and has been delivered an advance copy of the script for consideration. No word on exactly which role she is up for but rest assured that we will let you know as soon as we do.
As we recently reported, this sequel will connect back to Ripley and the Xenomorphs. Scott had initially suggested that the creature design would be different from the original franchise and that we wouldn’t be seeing any Xenomorphs but the director seems to have changed his tune on that, taking into account some of his other more recent statements. Scott recently said of re-approaching the Xenomorph. “We will see who made it, and why. That’s what’s interesting.”
As for how his prequel is effecting Neil Blomkamp’s sequel and if it’s getting in the way, Scott made the following statement:“I’m producing it. The design is for it to go out next, after this. This will go out first. It’s more associated with Ripley, it’s a completely different angle, it’s more of a sequel. I’m coming in from the back end.”
