If you wondered what Guy Pearce's role would be in PROMETHEUS, well, you don't have to play guessing games anymore because director Ridley Scott has done you a favor and revealed it in a recent interview with a Hungarian site, special thanks to AVP Galaxy for the translation below..
"When the first Alien movie and Blade Runner were made, I thought that in the near future the world will be owned by large companies. This is why we have the Tyrell Corporation in Blade Runner, and Weyland-Yutani in Alien. They sent the Nostromo spaceship. The Prometheus is owned by an entrepreneur called Peter Weyland, and is played by Guy Pearce. That’s the connection between the two films, and nothing more. Prometheus is a new film, a new world, and is full of new ideas. And of course new monsters as well."
Guy Pearce as a corporate head honcho, I can see that. Let's see.. Scott said.. new film, new world, new ideas, new monsters.. did I miss anythinig.. o yeah, New Awesome!!! Can't wait!
