Has The Fate Of One Of The Crew Members Of 'Prometheus' Been Spoiled Early?

In case it isn't transparently obvious, we'll say it anyway: There are spoilers below. If you don't want to know, stop reading right here.

Prometheus Michael Fassbender Noomi Rapace Logan Marshall-Green

In case it isn't transparently obvious, we'll say it anyway: There are spoilers below. If you don't want to know, stop reading right here.

Anyway, moving on, Ridley Scott's "Alien"-era prequel/spinoff/whatever "Prometheus" has matched Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises" in terms of keeping its secrets under lock and key. While we know the very faint outline thus far in terms of character details and specific plot points, it's mostly been a guessing game. What we do know is that Noomi Rapace is the female lead and quasi-Ripley of the film, Michael Fassbender is an android, while Charlize Theron works for The Company in something possibly resembling a villain role. As far as the story goes, it seems that mankind will be squaring off against our alien creators. Not everyone is expected to survive the film, and Scottish tabloid The Star (via Alien Prequel News) may have spoiled one of the crew members who won't make it out alive.

Yes, it's a tabloid, but a stopped clock is right twice a day and honestly, we can't imagine anyone making up a rumor surrounding an actress pretty much nobody has really heard of. However, according to the article (not online, but scanned at the link above), Kate Dickie ("Red Road," "The Pillars of Earth"), while making her big blockbuster movie debut, won't be around too long to enjoy it. The paper reveals that she "lasts just 28 minutes before an alien eats her," promising that the thrills in "Prometheus" will be coming fast and early.

There are even more details on her character, with the tabloid revealing: "Kate plays a tough first officer called Mudow, who needs to help her fellow crew members become aclimatised to their removal from cryo-sleep after a long space journey which ends on an apparently barren planet. With their muscles wasted from five years without use, she helps them to get fit -- only for them to fall victims to horrible creatures that begin stalking them for food."

Again, this could be bunk or perhaps a writer taking a bit of creative license with the details they were given, but it seems pretty spot on. In other news, Guy Pearce just told MTV, "I'm only [in the film] for a minute." Solidfying his niche as "the guy who appears in the movie for five seconds and gets killed off"? Guess we'll find out when the movie opens in 3D on June 1st.
