Ain’t It Cool News is reporting that Marc Streitenfeld will be scoring Ridley Scott’s upcoming sci-fi epic Prometheus. The composer’s involvement has been expected given his relationship with the director. Streitenfeld has scored Scott’s previous four movies American Gangster, A Good Year, Body of Lies and last year’s Robin Hood. Prometheus stars Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green, and Ben Foster. Very little information has been revealed about the film’s plot so far, but it has been reported that the story will involve a team of scientists whose spaceship gets marooned on a distant planet and that the storyline will be connected to Scott’s 1979 classic Alien. Damon Lindelof (Lost) and John Spaiths (The Darkest Hour) have written the screenplay and Ridley Scott is also producing the film with his brother Tony Scott, David Giler and Walter Hill. The movie will be released on June 8, 2012 by 20th Century Fox.

As previously reported, Streitenfeld also has the action drama The Grey directed by Joe Carnahan and starring Liam Neeson, Dermot Mulroney, Dallas Roberts, JoeAnderson and James Badge Dale coming up next year.
