Patrick Wilson has always been just on the cusp of great things, particularly after his fantastic breakout performance in "Little Children," but further acclaim has been just out of reach. Projects he has signed on to since -- ranging from the low key drama "Evening," the race baiter "Lakeview Terrance" and blockbuster fare like "The A-Team" and "Watchmen" -- just never quite made the grade, but coming off a massive hit this year with "Insidious" the actor has leapt straight into one of the most anticipated films of 2012.

Patrick Wilson has always been just on the cusp of great things, particularly after his fantastic breakout performance in "Little Children," but further acclaim has been just out of reach. Projects he has signed on to since -- ranging from the low key drama "Evening," the race baiter "Lakeview Terrance" and blockbuster fare like "The A-Team" and "Watchmen" -- just never quite made the grade, but coming off a massive hit this year with "Insidious" the actor has leapt straight into one of the most anticipated films of 2012.

First mentioned as an unquoted aside in an interview with the St. Petersburg Times, The Playlist has confirmed that Patrick Wilson has joined Ridley Scott's "Prometheus." But of course, as with everything around the movie, Wilson's role is unknown. But here’s what do know: the film stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Kate Dickie, Rafe Spall, Logan Marshall-Green and Guy Pearce in a story that is prequel/spinoff from the world first created in “Alien,” sharing some of its DNA. Theron plays the head of The Company and the film is shooting both R-rated and PG-13 versions with a decision on which one hits theaters to arrive after the film is wrapped.

And well, that's about it. Various images have floated to the web but the actual story has been guarded. A trailer of some kind is expected this fall and the film hits on June 8, 2012.
