With Sony’s “Madame Web” due out in cinemas tomorrow, the cast has been doing the press rounds promoting the new Spiderman universe film. One such cast member is Isabela Merced, one of the actors from Fede Alvarez’s upcoming Alien: Romulus! Though Merced didn’t dish the specifics, in a new article with The Hollywood Reporter she talked about a “disgusting” scene that made all her cast members look away!
Merced is also starring alongside Cailee Spaeny in Fede Álvarez’s upcoming Alien: Romulus, which takes place between Ridley Scott’s Alien (1979) and James Cameron’s Aliens (1986). During a recent round of reshoots, Merced and some nearby cast/crew got to watch a significant chunk of the film on Álvarez’s iPad, and one scene in particular prompted everyone but Merced to look away in horror.
“There’s a scene that I’m in, and they all had to turn away. Not one person stayed looking at that iPad because it was so disgusting,” Merced reveals. “And I was watching it like this … (Merced pretends to hold an iPad with a mesmerized look on her face.) I was so excited.”
The article also points that Alien: Romulus is currently undergoing reshoots. Fede Alvarez reported that he’d finished an assembly of Alien: Romulus in October last year and that after showing it to Sir Ridley Scott, that the Romulus director was “terrified” about Ridley’s response.
“And then he walks into the room and he did say “Fede, what can I say? It’s fucking great.” For me it was like…ahhh…My family knows it was one of the best moments of my life to have a master like him, which I admired so much, to even watch a movie I made but particularly something like this…and talk to me for an hour about what he liked about it.“
