Michael Fassbender Confirmed ‘Prometheus’ Sequel

Michael Fassbender and Ridley ScottMichael Fassbender has given hope to folks looking forward to a Prometheus sequel.

In the recent press rounds for X-Men: Days of Future Past, Fassbender - who played the android David in the 2012 sci-fi film - confirmed his involvement in the sequel but could not say when production would start.

When asked if he'd like to work with Prometheus director Ridley Scott again, Fassbender answered, “For sure.  I love Ridley.  He’s a master filmmaker."

His X-Men co-worker James McAvoy then asked him, “Are you doing a sequel?” to which he responded, “Yeah, but when I don’t know.”

Although Scott's involvement in the project is still up in the air, the soonest the film could realistically hit theaters would be in 2016.

Rosario Dawson Felt Insecure Being Naked

Rosario Dawson on the poster for 'Trance'Rosario Dawson found it difficult walking around completely naked for her new movie.

The 33-year-old Trance star - who recently split from the movie's director Danny Boyle - has admitted she felt "insecure" walking around with nothing on and her co-stars including James McAvoy made the experience "more awkward" by refusing to look at her.

Speaking at the world premiere of the movie at the Odeon West End in London's Leicester Square on Tuesday night, she exclusively told BANG Showbiz:

"The hardest and scariest part about it was walking. I was trying to figure out, like, how do you walk in front of everyone when you're naked? I don't think you really plan to do that really well. It's actually interesting because everyone's trying to be really respectful and polite and not look at you, but that almost makes it a little bit more awkward because you know you're performing to a certain extent. Like, I'm standing there and I'm walking across the room and I'm like, 'Am I walking too slow? Should I move my hip a little bit more?' You really get self conscious about the stupidest things. It was really funny because I'm looking over at James and James is not looking at me at all. He's looking at my shoulder; he's looking at some spot on the wall. It's sort of just like, OK, just be in the moment, be in the character."

VIDEO: Watch the Trailer for Danny Boyle’s Latest Film ‘Trance’

Director Danny Boyle's follow-up to his Oscar-nominated 127 Hours, Trance, features his real-life partner Rosario Dawson as a hypnotherapist hired by criminals to uncover the location of a priceless painting.

The thriller - which also stars James McAvoy and Vincent Cassel - appears to be more fast-paced than the James Franco drama and perhaps close to the level of trippiness (at one point in the trailer, Cassel speaks to McAvoy despite half his face and brain missing) that most recall from Boyle's cult classic Trainspotting.

The film hits limited theaters on April 5.

Andrew Garfield, James McAvoy and Kristen's boyfriend and Twilight: Saga co-star Robert Pattinson have all been approached for the role of Tetsuo - who is saved from a medical experiment by his friend.

James McAvoy Slams 3D Movies

James McavoyX-Men: First Class star James McAvoy thinks that 3D movies are a "waste of money."

The actor - who plays Professor X in the movie prequel - believes the technology is simply an excuse to get more money out of the cinema going public for a product that is not significantly better than normal films

"I think it's good thing X-Men is not 3D. In fact, thank God this movie is not in 3D. 3D is just an excuse to charge you an extra 10 bucks at the theater. And then in the end it's not 3D at all, it's just a waste of money. The idea of things coming out of the screen and making you jump out your seat are done very well but I think it's a waste of time and money and I wouldn't pay for a ticket to go to one of those films."

James cites the widely panned Clash of the Titans as an example of how not to do 3D movies, slamming the decision to add in the special effects in just a few weeks after production. "I maintain you can't do a good conversion of a two-hour movie with high quality in a few weeks like they tried to do with Clash of the Titans. I don't mean to throw that movie under the bus because my buddy Sam [Worthington] is in it, but I think everybody realized that this was a point at which people had gone too far."
