Has Ridley Scott found his new Sigourney Weaver for ALIEN prequel?

Has Ridley Scott found his new Sigourney Weaver? Mike Fleming reported a few days ago that 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' star Noomi Rapace has met with 20th Century Fox over their forthcoming 3D 'Alien' prequel, that might be titled 'Alien Harvest' and that she is said to have 'left a strong impression' on them. Rapace, who is gearing up to make her Hollywood debut with the 'Sherlock Holmes' sequel clearly shares the look of Weaver, if that's the direction Scott wishes to go down again. Most definitely she looks like she could hold down a fight and not just be fodder for the creature. Other actresses' that have met with Scott/Fox are Carey Mulligan, and Abbie Cornish, the latter who starred in Scott's 'A Good Year'. Previously, Gemma Arterton mentioned she had auditioned for the role but her coming public with that info might have cost her serious consideration.
