Charlize Theron has signed on to star in the highly anticipated Prometheus, according to Variety. The film is already generating a lot of buzz and we don't even know that much about it.
It is widely rumored to be a prequel to Alien, but director Ridley Scott has denied it, saying, "while Alien was indeed the jumping off point for this project, out of the creative process evolved a new, grand mythology and universe in which this original story takes place."
Variety reports Theron has signed a deal to star in the film, though we don't know how big a part or what that part will entail.
Noomi Rapace (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) and Michael Fassbender are also confirmed to be starring in the film.
Fox recently changed the release date from March 9, 2012 to high-profile summer blockbuster spot of June 8, 2012.
