'Gladiator' and 'Robin Hood' Director Shoots New Film, 'Prometheus,' At Base of Volcano

Friday, 22 Jul 2011 02:45 PM

Director Ridley Scott has moved filming for his upcoming film “Prometheus” to the foot of Iceland’s active Hekla volcano, Moviefone reports.

"If one is afraid of nature in this profession then it would be best to find a different job," the director told reporters in Reykjavik, Iceland’s capital.

When asked why the “Gladiator” director chose Iceland as the filming locale for his next film he responded, “it is possible to find similar landscapes elsewhere in the world. But here it is so rough and 'Jurassic-like,' and that proved decisive. Iceland is a massively beautiful country.”

Scott says that filming at the volcano should last roughly two weeks but only be a very short portion of the entire film, “15 minutes in total, if all goes to plan,” Scott said.
