Charlize Theron (Monster) has officially signed on to star in sci-fi epic Prometheus, after what appears to be weeks of negotiations.

Theron will star opposite Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class) and Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo).

Ridley Scott (Alien) will direct from a script by Lost scribe Damon Lindelof.

20th Century Fox will release Prometheus on June 8, 2012.

Theron will next be seen in Jason Reitman’s Young Adult, which is due to be released later this year.
