The St. Peterburg Times has some interesting news from the 'Prometheus' camp. The new sci-fi epic from Ridley Scott already has quite an impressive cast lined up but it seems that 'Watchmen' actor Patrick Wilson (below) also has a role lined up on the movie. Other sources have confirmed the rumour but obviously due to all the 'top secrecy' elements surrounding this project already no character info for Wilson's specific role is currently available. 'Prometheus' also stars Michael Fassbender ('X-Men: First Class'), Noomi Rapace ('The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo'), Charlize Theron, Idris Elba ('The Losers'), Sean Harris, Kate Dickie, Logan Marshall-Green, Rafe Spall ('Shaun of the Dead') and Guy Pearce ('The Hurt Locker').
"Wilson will need to leverage everything he's learned from Shorecrest to a new role in the highly anticipated Alien prequel Prometheus (directed by original Alien auteur Ridley Scott) for his latest challenge - creating a rare TV drama success on Fridays."
Here's the 'vague' plot details:
"Visionary filmmaker Ridley Scott returns to the genre he helped define, creating an original science fiction epic set in the most dangerous corners of the universe. The film takes a team of scientists and explorers on a thrilling journey that will test their physical and mental limits and strand them on a distant world, where they will discover the answers to our most profound questions and to life's ultimate mystery."
