Production of Ridley Scott’s sci-fi drama “Prometheus” has moved from London to Iceland with two weeks of filming kicking off today at the country’s Hekla volcano says Ice News.
Scott says that around 15 minutes in total of the final film will feature Iceland locations should everything go to plan. Cast members Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, and Noomi Rapace are all set to take part in the shoot which will include the Dettifloss waterfall – the most voluminous waterfall in Europe.
News of the filming comes less than a week after international media erroneously reported that Hekla was about to erupt. “There is a lot of innovative and new stuff in the film and it would be a shame to ruin that [surprise] with leaks” said Scott when asked for story details, though he does says this leg of shooting is “the beginning of time”.
Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Kate Dickie, Logan Marshall-Green and Guy Pearce also star in the film which opens next June.
