And then we see Charlize Theron doing push-ups naked…. Ridley Scott’s new SF film.

There is only so much terrestrial fear to go around. The upcoming Ridley Scott return to SF, Prometheus, is generating a lot of frantic fan buzz at this year’s Comic-con in San Diego. The film, a prequel loosely based on Scott’s early Alien days, will be released sometime in 2012. Scott’s earlier SF work includes Alien and Bladerunner, both visually stunning masterpieces of the modern sci-fi genre. The new film, starring Michael Fassbender, Theron, Noomi Rapace, and Guy Pearce, will include some “Alien DNA”, according to Scott, but will deliver an entirely new twist on the story. Scott cryptically quipped “in the last few minutes of the film, you’ll understand what I’m talking about”.

Scott will also shun CGI and rely on massive set-pieces for the film – “epic and expansive” in Scott’s terms.  All in 3D, which apparently has captivated Scott. “I’ll never work without 3D again. I loved the whole process.”

Take a peek at Scott’s interview from Iceland with the folks at Comic-con. Oh and, at least at this stage, the film does include that scene of Ms. Theron doing those push-ups…
