Michael is an Android

Michael's next project, after "Shame" will be "Prometheus" with director Ridley Scott (of Aliens).  An interesting project if we do say so.

Michael's character is an android, named David.  According to, David "is an android crew member. He will be some sort of forebear of the Bishop 341-B character, played by Lance Henriksen in Aliens and Alien3. As the character has been compared to Bishop and not the traitorous Ash, played by Ian Holm, we are presuming that the other crew members will be aware of his origins. This is the role that Fassbender has signed up for."

We're guessing that filming will start after promotions for "X-Men" is done, around early summer.  Here's more about film locations:  "Part of the film will be shot in Morocco. I’ve heard that some sort of archaeological dig where they discover alien DNA takes place there and that DNA gives them the coordinates for an alien world. I’ve also heard Morocco is being used for alien planet landscapes so I’m not sure if it’s an archaeological dig on another planet."  Source

Interesting concept. 

There's still some more characters to cast, but for right now, it's Michael and Noomi Repace as the lead female in the film.  We'll be waiting to hear who else comes aboard for this space trip.
