Noomi Rapace has revealed work has begun on the 'Prometheus' sequel.

The actress starred in last year's sci-fi smash - alongside Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green and Charlize Theron - and she is thrilled the follow-up script is currently being written because she is keen to work with director Sir Ridley Scott again.

She told The Playlist: "They're working on the script. I met Ridley in London a couple of weeks ago. I would love to work with him again and I know that he would like to do another one. It's just like we need to find the right story. I hope we will."

Although she admits filming the first movie was physically very tough, she says it was an amazing experience just working alongside the famed director.

She said: "I love working with Ridley. It was pure joy. It was really hard work sometimes. My body was a complete mess - I had bruises and cuts and emotionally I was a bit slammed. But being in his world and his universe was such an amazing experience."

The 'Prometheus' sequel is currently set for a 2014 or, more likely, 2015 release date.

Alien: Covenant

  • UK release: 12 May 2017

The spaceship Covenant ends up on an unknown planet littered with little egg things, which can’t be good. The latest in the franchise is basically an excuse for Scott’s fantastic visuals and a series of more or less ingenious variations on grisly death, although some will enjoy the spectacle of Fassbender kissing himself.
