If you ever saw Charlize Theron in the chilling flick Monster, then you know one thing for sure … she is very good at playing someone who’s very bad. Recently she spoke about her character in Ridley Scott’s upcoming Prometheus, and it sounds as if the actress is ready to engage in a bit more evil.

“I actually don’t play the heroine in it; that’s Noomi Rapace,” she tells Total Film. “I play somewhat of a villain in it. She’s not a believer, she’s not a scientist, she is the red tape that everyone has to go through. She’s working with the company that’s sponsoring this whole thing, and you can feel she definitely has an agenda, which we pick up in the third act. She’s more quiet thunder.”

In terms of whether or not we’ll see anything in Prometheus that will compare to the famed Alien chestbuster scene, “Maybe! I mean, if you’re a Ridley Scott fan and you love the genre, then you’re going to be happy. You’re going to be very, very happy.”

Bring it on!

Prometheus, starring Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Patrick Wilson, Logan Marshall-Green, and Ben Foster, will be in theaters on June 8th, 2012.

Ridley Scott, director of ‘Alien’ and ‘Blade Runner,’ returns to the genre he helped define. With ‘Prometheus’ he creates a groundbreaking mythology in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.
