PROMETHEUS Shooting Moves to Iceland for “the Beginning of Time”

     July 11, 2011


Ridley Scott’s Prometheus remains shrouded in secrecy, but the production is moving to Helka, Iceland for two weeks of shooting.  The country won’t be featured in the film, but Scott tells IceNews that what they shoot “will be 15 minutes in total, if all goes to plan.  We are shooting the beginning of time.” [Emphasis mine]  Lead actors Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, and Noomi Rapace will all be on hand for the shoot.  Part of the filming will be at the “Dettifoss waterfall [pictured above] — Europe’s most powerful by volume of water.”

So what does this mean for the story?  No one knows!  But Scott explains, “There is a lot of innovative and new stuff in the film and it would be a shame to ruin that [surprise] with leaks.”  I’m glad that they’re keeping the mystery alive, but hopefully we’ll get some answers on the film when it has its Comic-Con presentation on Thursday, July 21st.
