PROMETHEUS Sequel Moves Forward

Director Ridley Scott has talked about the possibility of a sequel to "Prometheus," his return to the "Alien" universe, since before the film was released this past June. But today 20th Century Fox has officially announced that they do indeed plan to move forward with a second installment in this new iteration of the franchise.

The "Prometheus" sequel is tentatively scheduled for release in 2014 or 2015.

Though there is no official word on the story, Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace are contracted to return as the android David and Dr. Elizabeth Shaw, respectively.

Indeed, during the roundtable discussions that we participated in at the London press event for the film Scott indicated that those characters, and their continued journey, would be the focus of the sequel saying:

"I know where it’s going. I know that to keep him (David) alive is essential and to keep her (Shaw) alive is essential and to go where they came from, not where I came from, is essential. That’s a pretty open door and then rather than going to that, I don’t see landing in a place that looks like paradise, that’s not how it’s going to be. There is a plan.”

When last we saw them, Shaw and David were fleeing in one of the ships that the "Engineers" (our creators) had on the military instillation that was LV-223.

I would not assume that the ship Shaw and David commandeered is the very one that we find crashed on LV-446, the moon that Ripley and her crew land on in the original "Alien", as Scott has said that was simply a "brother ship" and that at the close of "Prometheus" that those two storylines diverged.

At the film's conclusion Shaw remained determined to discover more about her makers and as Scott has said, that is where the continued tale will take us. 

It is unclear whether or not scribe Damon Lindelof will return for the sequel as Fox is reportedly in talks with other writers.

In addition to the round table discussions that we participated in, we conducted video interviews with Scott and the cast of "Prometheus" take a look at those interviews HERE.

Let us know what you'd like to see in a sequel to "Prometheus".

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.
