Since its announcement, everyone assumed that Noomi Rapace would return for Prometheus 2, which was re-titled to Alien: Paradise Lost and then to Alien: Covenant. But according to its director Ridley Scott, Rapace won’t be along for another outing.
“No,” Scott answered when asked if Rapace was coming back. “We’re still casting the main roles.”
This differs from an officially released statement from 20th Century Fox that stated Rapace would be reprising her role of Elizabth Shaw alongside Michael Fassbender and newcomer Katherine Waterson.
Scott has announced there are two more sequels in the works for Prometheus after Alien: Covenant, so there is a chance for her character to return in another outing. However when asked for a comment on Prometheus and its sequels, Rapace told Red Carpet TV News, “I have no comment on that yet.”
Sounds like more trouble is afoot for Scott’s Alien: Covenant than meets the eye. »

Now comes the news, directly from Scott himself, that Noomi Rapace won't be coming back for his space horror follow-up. When asked by a Daily Mail journalist whether Rapace would be reprising her role as Elizabeth Shaw, Scott said, "No," before adding, "We're still casting the main roles."
This marks a major change from the official information provided by Fox in November 2015, where Noomi Rapace was among the three actors confirmed for Alien: Covenant - the others being Michael Fassbender and newcomer Katherine Waterston.
While director Ridley Scott revisited his beloved Alien franchise in 2012's Prometheus, the film didn't have as many connections to the original thriller than many fans wanted. Last year, the filmmaker make the blockbuster announcement that his sequel to Prometheus will be entitled Alien: Covenant, which has been confirmed to start a new trilogy that will eventually lead up to the original Alien. With production set to begin in two months, the filmmaker confirmed during a backstage interview at the Golden Globes, courtesy of Screen Slam, that he's aiming for a "hard R" rating with Alien: Covenant, which he hopes is even scarier than the original.
"I'm going to do a hard R. It's going to be pretty tough. I always remember walking down the edge in Saint Louis when we were previewing [Alien]. I couldn't sit through the film one more time. I walked down the edge into the kitchen »

New Year, new broom. Or rather mop in the case of Jennifer Lawrence, as her latest movie Joy rolls into cinemas. She takes the role of entrepreneurial dynamo Joy (based on Joy Mangano), inventor of a revolutionary cleaning product that carries her to fame on a sea of elbow grease.
It doesn’t sound like something that’ll polish off the competition at the box office, yet one look at the roster of talent involved suggests this isn’t the film you might expect, directed as it is by one of the ultimate left-field helmers, David O Russell.

So join us on the path to enlightenment as we bring you some of celluloid’s best thinkers from outside the box. »
