>Fassbender to play android in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus

>Hunger-striker. Movie critic. Magneto. Sex addict. The endlessly talented Michael Fassbender is set to add another challenging role to his already impressive filmography. According to THR, he will play an android in Ridley Scott’s not-quite-Alien-prequel Prometheus.

We first learned Fassbender had been approached to play David the android (similar to Lance Henrikson‘s Bishop from Aliens) in Scott’s latest in December of 2010, back when the project was still a prequel to Alien.

Of course, the project has since morphed into a far vaguer space-related project, and that is apparently what cinched the deal for Fassbender!

He will star opposite Noomi Rapace. Prometheus hits cinemas June 8, 2012.

Discuss: It seems like an awful lot of elements from the Alien prequel have been carried over into Prometheus. Is this a good or bad sign?
