According to the media, director Ridley Scott has been scouting out film locations for upcoming sci-fi flick Prometheus here in Iceland.
Ridley Scott and entourage arrived here on Friday, April 29th on a private jet and were met by staff from True North, a production and service company for the film and television industry that specializes in delivering production services to companies filming in Iceland.
They went straight to a helicopter that took them to possible film locations in the south. On Saturday, April 30th they went to Akureyri, the biggest city in North Iceland, to scout out further locations.
Ain’t it cool news had some information on the film locations for Prometheus.
Ain’t It Cool News reports that Scott was “due to shoot in the Highlands from early August until September, then elsewhere in Europe in October and November”. Presumably, Iceland could fit nicely into the October, November time frame.
