Prometheus 2 On Deck For Scott

By Dr. Know on March 24th, 2014

Well, it looks like Fox is a lot more serious about a second Prometheus movie than we thought; the studio has scheduled the movie for release on March 4, 2016, and sources are saying Ridley Scott will return to direct.

At present, the earlier drafts penned by Jack Paglen (Transcendence) are being rewritten by Michael Green (Arrow), who’s also writing Scott’s Blade Runner sequel/prequel/whatever.

Story details for the untitled Prometheus sequel are being kept under wraps, but Green’s script is said to be more Alien-ish than the 2012 film and in line with the same horror tone of the previous films.  Moreover, the new movie will supposedly feature multiple David androids, who was played by Michael Fassbender the first time around; however, there’s no confirmation Fassbender is returning for seconds.

Once again, look for the tentatively-titled Prometheus 2 on March 4, 2016 (at least until Fox switches the date…and I’m betting they will).
