Prometheus is being called both an Alien prequel and a spin-off, though for the time being, Ridley Scott is calling it neither. While it will have ties to the world of Alien, Scott says that this is a whole different story.
Actor Michael Fassbender has come forward with some new details on this upcoming sci-fi epic, shedding some light on what Prometheus is exactly. He also nonchalantly confirmed that he will be playing an Android in the upcoming movie.
First, he offered more thoughts on Prometheus.
"I'm really looking forward to stepping into a Ridley Scott sci-fi world. And the script is really intelligent and has a nice pace to it. It's a different story, but it's also got the traditional roots. Alien fans will recognize things in it. It's not ignoring Alien, there's still a link to that world. But it's a different story. It's definitely connected, though."
When asked about playing an android, Michael Fassbender stated the following.
"I don't know what I can say! I don't want to get into trouble..."
After saying this, he nodded affirmatively, quietly confirming that he will indeed be playing an android in Prometheus.
