Director Ridley Scott has revealed more about Guy Pearce's role in Prometheus, which is scheduled to hit theaters on June 8. Scott conducted an interview with a Hungarian news outlet and spilled some more details as to who Pearce is playing in the sci-fi film:
"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. Thatís 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."
The anticipated film also stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green and Charlize Theron.
