When you hear a description for a character as “fortysomething, tough-but-sexy” Charlize Theron is most definitely someone that comes to mind. Hence why she may be in the works to do the new Alien prequel being done by Ridley Scott. Sounds like a pretty badass combination right?! Well, let’s hope it happens.
Set to play lead is Noomi Rapace (The Girl With the Dragan Tattoo, Sherlock Holmes 2). I’m super excited about this news since she kicked ass in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and I didn’t even understand what she was saying half the time! Definitely check Noomi out in Dragon Tattoo before seeing Alien, you won’t be disappointed.
But I digress… I really hope that Theron takes the part after looking over the script, which she is supposedly getting this week. It will definitely make Theron and her agents look less douchey for backing out of Clint Eastwoods’ J. Edgar Hoover biopic after saying that Theron would do it when she never formally agreed to. I mean, if you’re gonna blow off Clint mutha fuckin’ Eastwood than you better be doing some cool shit in it’s stead. What do you guys think about Charlize possibly being in the new Alien flick??
