Posted by STARR KESHET

Ridley Scott has confirmed that sultry Noomi Rapace of Dragon Tattoo fame will star in a new sci-fi flick dubbed Prometheus.

According to Scott, Prometheus is slated to be a stand-alone film, rather than a two-part Alien prequel. 



However, the prolific director acknowledged the movie would feature "strands of Alien's DNA," while tackling ideas that were "unique, large and provocative."

Sultry Noomi Rapace to star in Ridley Scott's Prometheus"[Yes], while Alien was indeed the jumping-off point for this project, out of the creative process evolved a new, grand mythology and universe in which this original story takes place," he explained.

Meanwhile, Rapace said she planned on getting into tip-top shape to play British scientist Elizabeth Shaw.

"I want to turn my body into something like a cat or a lion. They can be still and relaxed, and then explode."

Hot damn!

Prometheus will be hitting the theaters in March 2012.
