Though Ridley Scott is well into production on his sci-fi thriller Prometheus, that hasn't stopped him from adding another well-known actor to his cast.

Patrick Wilson has come aboard this Alien spin-off, but it is not known in what capacity, or who he will be playing.

Other cast members include Noomi Rapace, Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, and Idris Elba.
