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!

    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.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
