Market Saw has revealed that Prometheus - the upcoming sci-fi film helmed by Alien director Ridley Scott - will be shooting on Iceland's stony desert highlands in the near future over the course of seven days. Below are some details concerning the area, scouting the location, and more...

Ridley is not yet on the set according to the locals, but soon to arrive.

Scott and his team first visited back on April 29 to scout locations on the island via private jet, then helicopter flying to the southern regions. The next day they travelled north to Akureyri (largest city in the north) for further scouting.

The production will shoot for about 7 days in Iceland. True North Productions and the production manager Sam Breckman have been hard at work bringing this all to fruition. True North has been responsible for some truly awe inspiring locations on Iceland (DIE ANOTHER DAY, JOURNEY 3D, BATMAN BEGINS, FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS, TOMB RAIDER to name a few). PROMETHEUS is in great hands! Yes the last two shots are Iceland!! Looks alien to me. Great spot for PROMETHEUS.

Below are a couple of images of the Highlands:

Starring Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Ben Foster, Guy Pearce, Charlize Theron and Idris Elba, Prometheus is unleashed in theaters June 8th, 2012!
