Since we're taking IMDB's credibility with a grain of salt; we can say that HBO True Blood actress Rutina Wesley has rumoredly joined the cast of Ridley Scott's Sci-Fi thriller Prometheus in the role of a character named Lara.

We last posted a newly released image of Idris Elba along with Charlize Theron HERE. To recap, the Prometheus synopsis reads:

"A team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race."

Why didn't we know about this before I wonder, if, indeed it is true?? The film has been wrapped for a few months now.

The film, which also stars Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Guy Pearce, is set to hit theaters summer of 2012.

    I congratulate both Idris Elba and Michael Fassbender for choosing the opportunity offered by Ridley Scott and turning their backs to the degradation offered by Quentin Tarantino.

    I also congratulate Ridley Scott for offering Rutina Wesley a positive opportunity to counter Quentin Tarantino's sick and twisted fantasy of Black women.

    Prometheus has an enormous built-in fanbase due to the Alien franchise and Ridley Scott's world-wide reputation as a film director.

    Well-played all!

    Thank you Ridley!

    Rutina Wesley was also attached to "Man of Steel", thats coming out 2013 for a little while before being removed. I hope this is true, I would love to see her doing more big screen work!
