Earlier we reported that Guy Pearce had joined Ridley Scott’s highly-anticipated Prometheus. Thanks to The Playlist, today we have confirmation that Pearce has joined the top-secret cast. At this time, we have no further information on what character he will play. Even though they say this isn't a Alien prequel there are elements that have leaked out that prove otherwise. You can read more about that here and here.
Pearce joins the stellar cast that includes, Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Kate Dickie, Rafe Spall and Logan Marshall-Green. Filming on Prometheus is currently underway, and is slated to last six-months. It started in Toronto and is now filming on soundstages in London. Prometheus arrives in theaters on June 8, 2012.
I think Pearce is a great actor and will be a wonderful addition to the cast. If you have not see LA Confidential, I highly recommend you see it to witness Pearce's performance. He is also great in Memento and Animal Kingdom.
