Rafe Spall Confirms Prometheus is a Prequel to Ridley Scott's Alien

The actor is promoting his new movie, Roland Emmerich's Anonymous, and spills some details about Ridley Scott's mysterious science fiction film.

Rafe appeared on BBC's morning show Something for the Weekend and confirms what most of already suspected. Prometheus has been shrouded in mystery and disinformation. I just hope Rafe is better at acting than at keeping secrets, because if he keeps this up he won't working for long.

In this interview Spall confirms, like many actors before him, that Prometheus is very much part of the 'Alien' universe.

"[Ridley Scott] directed the first Alien, and this is... I've been sent an e-mail about what I'm allowed to say and what I'm not allowed to say and I haven't read the e-mail. (laughs).

It's out next June, and it's part of the Alien franchise. I'm in it, and Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender.

I think fans of the franchise will love it. Alien is one of the best films ever made, and it's a real buzz to be in a space suit on an 'Alien' set with Ridley Scott coming and speaking to you.

It's incredible. That's why I wanted to be an actor, to be in a space suit on an 'Alien' set."

The interview then moves on to all the secrecy surrounding Prometheus. BBC presenter Tim Lovejoy points out that there are no trailers yet, and asks Rafe Spall if he has seen anything yet:

"I've seen nothing. Really, they keep it all under closed wraps and don't let anyone see anything [...] There's a few bits and pieces (referring to the leaked stills and images), but they want to keep it secret. They're very protective of it." - alienprequelnews.com

Rafe was also interviewed by Movie Fanatic and had this to say, "Prometheus was pretty dope [laughs]. Prometheus was amazing. Another big-time director, he’s one of our genuine talents. With Alien and Blade Runner, they’re not just the best sci-fi films ever made -- they’re some of the best movies ever made. So it was an extraordinary, humbling experience being part of movie history."

Prometheus stars Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green, Ben Foster, and Michael Fassbender.

Prometheus will hit theaters on June 8th, 2012!
