Idris Elba, Sean Harris & Kate Dickie Join Ridley Scott's Prometheus

TheDailyMail is reporting that Idris Elba (RockNRolla, The Wire), Sean Harris (Red Riding Trilogy) and Kate Dickie have joined Ridley Scott's Prometheus. Their roles are unknown at this point but I wouldn't rule out a couple of them being suits from the company. The amazing cast also has Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender and Charlize Theron in the leads.

Scoot McNairy (Monsters) has been linked for a role as well but it's unknown if he'll end up in the movie. As he's set to be a lead in Cogan's Trade and could take a role in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

There are some rumors suggesting that the story could involve the original aliens but might be unrecognizable from the ones in the original two films. Like how the alien in Alien3 was hosted by a dog and moved/looked different from the aliens hosted by humans. A planet used to grow bio-weapons could also be involved this might be the origin planet of the xenomorphs. Of course this is all speculation also with the persistent talk of the space jockey being in the film as well. Prometheus along with Elysium are two science fiction films I'm dying to see in 2012. No matter how much of the original alien is involved. I've been waiting a long time for Ridley Scott to return to science fiction and the quality of the cast he's trying to assemble speaks volumes to me.
