Rumors had been flying around for the past few days about Guy Pearce taking a role in Ridley Scott's highly anticipated and top-secret "Prometheus" after CHUD caught wind of some intel from their sources. We put in a few calls and it turns out that morsel of info is bang on.

The Playlist has confirmed with reps for the actor, that Guy Pearce has joined "Prometheus." There's no word yet on what his role in the film is, but he's joining an already solid cast in the film that both is and isn't a direct prequel to "Alien" -- essentially, it will take place in the same world with some connective DNA stringing the two films together, but how much more than that remains to be seen.

Pearce joins Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Kate Dickie, Rafe Spall and Logan Marshall-Green in the film that is currently in the midst of a six-month shoot that started in Toronto and is currently in front of cameras on soundstages in London. The film will hit theaters on June 8, 2012.
