Production start dates for Ghost in the Shell, Avatar 2, Alien: Covenant, Wolverine 3 and Transformers 5

1 February 2016 11:57 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to My Entertainment World, we’ve got details on production start dates for some of 2017’s big hitters.

The Scarlett Johansson-headlined Ghost in the Shell, which is set to be directed by Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman) will begin filming this month in New Zealand, Hong Kong, Macau and Shanghai.

Also set to commence production this month is the Fifty Shades of Grey follow-up Fifty Shades Darker, which sees Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson returning as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele alongside new addition Kim Basinger.

The release date of Avatar 2 may have been pushed back due to Star Wars: Episode VIII, but James Cameron will reportedly start shooting the follow-up to the highest-grossing film of all time in New Zealand in April.

Avatar 2 And Wolverine 3 Reportedly Eyeing April 2016 Start Dates; Fifty Shades Darker And More Also Slated

1 February 2016 9:40 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Arguably two of the biggest sequels teetering on the edge of entering production, in a comprehensive report detailing upcoming start dates, My Entertainment World has seemingly revealed that Wolverine 3 and James Cameron’s long-delayed Avatar 2 will leap in front of the cameras come April.

Recently pushed out of its tentative December 2017 release window – likely to make room for Disney’s Star Wars: Episode VIII – Cameron’s sci-fi follow-up has struggled to nail down a concrete production timeline up until now. Now, however, My Entertainment World claims that the director’s trip to Pandora will begin filming in New Zealand in only a few months’ time. No word yet on whether Cameron will remain committed to filming three sequels back-to-back, though we’ll keep you updated as Avatar 2 inches closer to firing up production.

Noomi Rapace Won’t Return for ‘Alien: Covenant’

1 February 2016 7:30 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Title notwithstanding, Alien: Covenant is a Prometheus sequel, and as such we’ve been expecting it to pick up where that earlier adventure left off. But it seems at least one major development will have taken place by the time we revisit that universe. Director Ridley Scott confirms Noomi Rapace will not return as archaeologist Elizabeth Shaw, leaving Michael Fassbender‘s murderous android David the […]

Scott Reveals Noomi Rapace's Fate For 'Alien: Covenant'

1 February 2016 6:44 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

With Alien: Covenant now picking up steam, and bits of casting information making the rounds, some have wondered whether or not Noomi Rapace- who appeared in Prometheus- would be in the film. After all, she was the sole human survivor in Prometheus, and Covenant is both a sequel to that film and a prequel to the original Alien. Would her Elizabeth Shaw be part of what bridges these films to the originals?


According to director Ridley Scott, Rapace will not be in Alien: Covenant. He was sort of mum on the subject, when asked about it by the Daily Mail. All he said was, "No," and then added, "We're still casting the main roles."

So that settles that. The Swedish actress, probably best known for her work in the original film adaptation of Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and her Shaw will not be present as we »

Ridley Scott Confirms Noomi Rapace Won't Be Returning For 'Alien: Covenant'

1 February 2016 6:25 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Back in November, Ridley Scott met with members of the Australian press to talk about "Alien: Covenant" which he would be shooting in the country. He teased that Michael Fassbender would have dual roles in the film, and said that Noomi Rapace would be back as well, albeit in a "minor role." However, as the picture gears up to start shooting this year, it seems there's no more room for the actress.

Noomi Rapace won’t be returning for Alien: Covenant

1 February 2016 5:35 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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. »

Huge Alien Covenant Noomi Rapace news: The actress will Not return as Elizabeth Shaw. Alien Covenant Noomi Rapace news

Big Alien Covenant Noomi Rapace news. Yes, it has been confirmed that Noomi Rapace will not return for the Prometheus sequel Alien: Covenant. Rapace played the role of Elizabeth Shaw in the first movie, which was released back in 2012.

The Alien Covenant Noomi Rapace exit news comes from the Daily Mail. Their film critic Baz Bamigboye asked Ridley Scott if Rapace will be reprising her role in the film, which is about to start shooting this month down in Australia.

Here’s a little from the original article.

I asked if Noomi Rapace, who was in his film Prometheus (from which Covenant follows), would be working with him in Australia and he said no. ‘We’re still casting the main roles,’ he said.

Alien: Covenant - Noomi Rapace won't return says Ridley Scott

1 February 2016 1:48 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Prometheus star Noomi Rapace won't be coming back for the sequel Alien: Covenant, director Ridley Scott has revealed...

Like the old alien itself, Ridley Scott's Prometheus sequel seems to be changing shape before our very eyes. First came the title change - what was Alien: Paradise Lost became Alien: Covenant.

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.

So what's happened? Have screenwriting trio Jack Paglen, Michael Green and John Logan »

Noomi Rapace Won't Be In "Alien: Covenant"

30 January 2016 9:53 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Just before it's scheduled to begin production, Ridley Scott's "Alien: Covenant" is making a key change - getting rid of one of only two characters returning from "Prometheus".

The Daily Mail (via Yahoo) reports that actress Noomi Rapace will not be returning for the film which is either one of two or three films set to bridge the gap between "Prometheus" and the original "Alien".

The story is set a decade after the events of "Prometheus" and follows the crew of the colony ship Covenant who set out to find a paradise-like world - only to discover a cold, desolate, dark planet where the android David (Michael Fassbender) is the only inhabitant. Scott says he has most of the film already planned out with detailed storyboards that enable him to visualise each shot.

It has previously been suggested that Rapace's Dr. Elizabeth Shaw character, the only survivor aside from »

Alien: Covenant Won't Include Prometheus' Noomi Rapace

30 January 2016 3:33 PM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Later this year, Sir Ridley Scott will return to the Alien universe he first visited in 1979 with a follow up to his 2012 science fiction adventure Prometheus, now titled Alien: Covenant. Though this will be a step towards eventually catching up with the Alien continuity, it will still be the direct descendent of Prometheus, but while it will bring back some key pieces from that film, there will be one noticeable absence: Noomi Rapace. Scott and the Alien: Covenant crew are preparing to film in Australia later this year, but when that commences, Noomi Rapace, who starred in the first film and is one of two characters who survived the conclusion, will not make an appearance. Ridley Scott told Yahoo Australia that the Swedish actress will not reprise her role, and that they are "still casting" the main roles. The 36-year-old actress played Dr. Elizabeth Shaw, the leader of a late »

How many xenomorphs will be in 'Alien: Covenant'?

28 January 2016 11:41 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Just how many xenomorphs can we expect in Alien: Covenant? Director Ridley Scott already promised multiple variations of the vicious alien creatures in the forthcoming Prometheus sequel -- “We’ll have them all: egg, face-hugger, chest-burster, then the big boy," he promised The Wrap -- but if this new casting call put out by Australian talent agency McTv is any indication, we could be looking at multiple full-grown xenomorphs in the film. Here's the breakdown: Age Range: 8-40 Physical Attributes: Skinny and very tall and skinny and very short but strong and very physically agile. Other Skills: Fast in Movement. Acrobats, Dancers, Gymnasts, Contortionist, Cirque du Soleil type performers As die-hard fans of Scott's original Alien know, that film's xenomorph was played in large part by 6'10" Bolaji Badejo, a London-based design student who was hired for his tall, thin frame. For scenes requiring more specialized physical movement, the creature »

Ridley Scott says Alien: Covenant will be “pretty hard R”

17 January 2016 8:57 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As Ridley Scott gears up to go into production on his Prometheus sequel / Alien prequel Alien: Covenant, the filmmaker spoke to Coming Soon about the project at the Golden Globes, stating that he is shooting for a “hard R” with the film, and is looking to top the chestburster scene in Alien with something “much worse”.

“I think I’m going to do a pretty hard R,” states Scott. “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 scene when John Hurt started to bring up his breakfast. That moment, I realized how pretty scary the film was… I felt a sense of responsibility that I had gone too far because it was extreme. I’m going to try and do that again this year, but much worse. »

Ridley Scott Says 'Alien: Covenant' Has a Hard R Rating

14 January 2016 3:28 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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.
