Michael Fassbender Joins Prometheus Coming June 8th 2012
HeatVision reports that Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds, X-Men First Class) has been officially cast in Ridley Scott's Prometheus. This the second actor cast in the secret sci-fi film after Noomi Rapace. There is still talk that Charlize Theron and Angelina Jolie are the two candidates for the role of Vickers. Fassbender is playing an android in the film which had been previously named David. It's unknown if the character has gone through changes since the Alien prequel was scrapped. The film's release date has moved from March 9th 2012 to June 8th 2012. Likely to avoid Disney's release of John Carter of Mars.
