Rafe Spall talks ‘Prometheus,’ confirms ‘Aliens’ ties

Rafe Spall, currently starring in Roland Emmerich’s historical drama about the mystery of William Shakespeare, ‘Anonymous’, made an appearance on the BBC morning show Something for the Weekend and shared a few words about Prometheus.

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.”
