"PROMETHEUS' Will Blow Your Mind" Patrick Wilson Talks Ridley Scott's Sci-Fi Behemoth!

Patrick Wilson, a somewhat late addition to the cast of Ridley Scott's Alien prequelesque© sci-fi behemoth Prometheus recently caught up with MTV & stated the upcoming movie will "blow your mind". The actor who is currently on break from filming his new TV drama A Gifted Man revealed how impressed he was by Jon Spaihts & Damon Lindelof's script [written with Scott] & chats a little on the size of his role. Prometheus also stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Kate Dickie, Rafe Spall, Logan Marshall-Green & Guy Pearce. Prometheus opens in 3D on June 8th 2012. Hit the jump for the details.

Patrick Wilson"It was an absolute thrill, I was blown away by [the script] and I don’t use that sort of phrase a lot, but I was blown away by it, so excited that I wanted to read it again. I just kept re-reading it, even though I knew what was coming. And put it this way, I’ve never done this, I've never finished the shooting on a movie, and then on the ride home read the script again. I had no reason to read it, it was not work-oriented, I just really loved it, it’s so cool." 
Wilson's role is not a starring one, but he revealed his character carries his own weight.  
Patrick Wilson: "There is an importance to my character, certainly size [of the role] was not the issue, It's an exciting, thrilling script, so to be a part of it on any level, I said 'Yes, just tell me where you want me to be, I will be there.' It was great. It was nice to come in just as they were finishing shooting, just to play a little bit. As you can imagine, [the film] is very wonderfully exiting, and yet so complicated and layered, which to me is what science fiction is all about, when it operates on many, many levels."
