Jack Paglen Hired to Pen PROMETHEUS 2

Ridley Scott jumped back into the sci-fi genre that he helped make so popular with "Prometheus". The film was met with exceptionally mixed reviews and it skewed a little more in favor of disappointment. Many felt that while it was visuality beautiful and raised a lot of great and philosophical questions, it didn't provide enough information or insight to tie them up.

The film still made an impressive $403 million at the worldwide box office, so news of a sequel was not very surprising. Damon Lindelof who scribed the first film, announced that he would not be a part of the second. Now news has hit announcing that Jack Paglen is penning the sequel script.

Paglen wrote the screenplay for the upcoming sci-fi film "Transcendence", which marks the directorial debut of Christopher Nolan's award winning cinematographer, Wally Pfister. That film stars Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany, Morgan Freeman, Kate Mara and Rebecca Hall.

Scott has reportedly agreed to the direction Paglen has outlined, so it should only be a matter of time until we heard details of what the two have in mind. Since many blamed Lindelof for the holes found in the first film, the pressure is indeed high for Paglen.

Do you think Paglen is the right man for the job? Let us know in the comments section below!

    Some people don't like anime as much because of how serreal it is a lot of the times dark and gritty where as other animation that is more popular is light colourful with round appearing shapes this makes the characters cuter or funnier looking witch are more pleasing characteristics and these tricks make them more appealing to the viewer

    I agree that fewer people see anime. I have to admit that if my daughter's hadn't convinced me to watch Attack On Titan I would never have watched an anime series. Through that I was introduced to anime movies and other forms of anime. If they had not convinced me to watch some with them so we could talk about it I would never have seen any. This is not because I have a bias but simply because I had never really heard of anime and had no frame of reference for it. Spirited Away is a beautiful movie that truly is an experience. I liked Howl's Moving Castle. I have Princess Nonoke and Graveyard of the Fireflies on my list. Akira is on my "maybe" list, the trailers just don't appeal to me; not because they are anime but because the content of the trailer is not appealing. Period. Give it another generation or two of everyone being introduced to anime and whatever comes after anime as a matter of course; part of the life experience that includes Snow White by Disney and Toy Story by Pixar and Curse Of The Were Rabbit by DreamWorks and Whatever Comes Next by Whomever Comes Next. Give it time...

    Of course it's most popular how else can you quantify a "best" movie. You can't it's not possible. No one watched the Japanese movies so they don't win. It's really that simple. But also in money made they beat them So there's that.
