PROMETHEUS has been one rollercoaster ride of a project. Following it has been akin to trailing a mosquito in a south Georgian swamp, as it's changed titles, premises, and titles over the course of the past months more times than I can count. Originally, PROMETHEUS was intended to be an ALIEN prequel; now, however, it's grown into something entirely new and original after a script-polish by Damon Lindleof.

Despite already having a strong cast, Scott has enlisted a few more actors into his regiment. Hit the jump for a look at the ever-growing ensemble.

We already know that Noomi Rapace, the breakout star of THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO fame, is set to star in the film, while Charlize Theron and Michael Fassbenderwill have critical supporting roles. Now we've discovered, thanks to The Playlist, a few more names who will round out the cast.

Idris Elba, whose roles in The Wire and The Office make him a familiar face for myself, will join Sean Harris and Katie Dickie as members of the supporting cast. Harris was recently in HARRY BROWN, the Michael Caine vigilante film, and in the British crime drama, RED RIDING. Dickie has few recognizable credits to her name, though she is looking to join ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER.
