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!

    Really like the look of it! The trailer has a menacing and dark tone to it, as LEE pointed out. Hopefully this won't be another Die Hard 5 case, awesome trailer but terrible film. Godzilla looks so much like it's 60 year old predecessor. I did like the 1999 Godzilla, just because the actors were awesome and it was cool to see another take on a legendary creature, but this film looks so much darker, almost forbidden. Can't wait till the middle of May!!
