Ridley Scott will be directing the epic sci-fi movie "Prometheus" due out March 9th, 2012 from Twentieth Century Fox according to

Details are scarce as the exact plot is not being released but Scott did have this to say:

"While 'Alien' was indeed the jumping off point for this project, out of the creative process evolved a new, grand mythology and universe in which this original story takes place. The keen fan will recognize strands of 'Alien's' DNA, so to speak, but the ideas tackled in this film are unique, large and provocative. I couldn't be more pleased to have found the singular tale I'd been searching for, and finally return to this genre that's so close to my heart."

Damon Lidelof ("Lost," "Star Trek") who is working on the movie with Scott said the following:

"In a world flooded with prequels, sequels and reboots," said Lindelof. "I was incredibly struck by just how original Ridley's vision was for this movie. It's daring, visceral and hopefully, the last thing anyone expects. When I sat in a movie theater as a kid, feet raised off the floor for fear that something might grab my ankles, I never dreamed in my wildest imagination I would one day get to collaborate with the man responsible for it. Working alongside him has been nothing short of a dream come true."

One major role has already been cast with "The Girl With A Dragon Tattoo" star, Noomi Rapace, to play scientist Elizabeth Shaw. This is said to be the first of five major roles for the movie with more to be announced soon.
