Fox confirms Prometheus 2 coming in either 2014 or 2015!

Aug. 1, 2012by: Alex Maidy

Looks like we may get to find out if Shaw and David make it to Paradise after all.

Fox president of production Emma Watts confirmed that the sequel to Ridley Scott's PROMETHEUS will be released in either 2014 or 2015. This comes after the film grossed $300 million worldwide, which is not a huge number but still very good.

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Ridley Scott is actively working on the sequel. Both stars Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender are contracted for a second film. Screenwriter Damon Lindelof may not return due to other projects so Scott and Fox and considering other writers.

Watts states "Ridley is incredibly excited about the movie, but we have to get it right. We can't rush it."

This is awesome news. While PROMETHEUS was not the absolute cinematic perfection I built it up to be in my head, it was still a great movie. I loved every second of it and I hope the sequel explores the themes of the movie without spending any time on the ALIEN creatures themselves.

Even if it means waiting until 2015, that is well worth it to see Ridley Scott return to this story again.

Extra Tidbit: The THR article also states TED 2, SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN 2, and AMERICAN PIE 5 are on their way.

Thank you!

Yes! Thank you! Suck it all you haters of the first film. Want something to bitch about, how about "Alien Resurrection" and "Alien vs. Predator". Said it before, want a simple prequel story watch Episodes I-III. Want to descent into a rich and complex matrix of mystery, watch "Prometheus", which was meant to have a sequel from the get go. Looking very forward to see with a sequel brings. A lot is riding on this. A "Prometheus" sequel will either greatly aid the first film and bring about a

I'm having the same experience I remember having after The Phantom Menace.
I tried to convince myself while I was watching Prometheus that it was good.
But after considering it I had to come to the realization that it was little more than a rewrite of the original Alien screenplay, nothing beyond that happened except for the addition of some Ancient Alien elements. And it wasn't scary, at all.
Frankly, the characters were dysfunctional to the point of silliness.

Anything that puts more Sci-Fi on the big screen is good news for me, and I thought Prometheus, while not without it's flaws, was a good time with some big ideas.

Can we get a 'C'mon Hollwood: Make more Sci-Fi movies!' please?

Prometheus...f**k yeah!

I hope it's not called 'Prometheus 2' though. That would be stupid. I loved Prometheus, and I'm glad Fox has decided to greenlight a sequel. 2014 is shaping up to be one helluva good year for moviegoers.

gummy bears....

People that complain about not like prometheus remind me of the people that complained about Drive not being like the fast and the furious, even though it was awesome movie it didn't leave them all warm and fuzzy inside like the gummy bears their parents used to shove down their throats.

Yes! But...

I think this is extremely good news! I loved Prometheus and having Ridley delve more into the story aspect of it, now that the characters and premise has been defined, will only make for a more satisfying experience. My only concern is that Mr. Scott isn't exactly a spring chicken. I'm hoping he has 2-3 years left. Hell, I hope he has 15-20 years left, but you know what I'm saying. Sorry to be a Debbie Downer...womp womp.

"Prometheus" is one of the worst films of the year! Making a sequel depresses me.

I liked Prometheus, a lot.

I definitely want more.
My opinion and the internet's opinion on movies hasn't exactly been aligning lately. Maybe it's time we started seeing different people. Oh well, I've been having a lot of fun at the movies this year (except Ice Age 4, fuck that movie)

This is great news. Prometheus, frankly, doesn't stand on its own as a film. It needs a second film to explain and give context to what happened in it. Without a second film, Prometheus would go down as a noble failure (and it still might). But with a second film, it might be truly amazing.

No thanks. I was all hyped up for the first and was extremely disappointed. Yes, the visuals were amazing but that was about it. The acting was horrid (I'm talking to you Charlize). There were characters doing dumb things (scientists petting vagina cobras). Nothing was answered and only only more questions were brought up. I will wait for this on netflix, thank you very much.

Yeah, I'll pass.

I can always catch it on cable or Netflix when I'm good and drunk and there's nothing else on but Cops reruns.

Bring on the hate, but honestly, the only way I could watch this movie a second time was if I was tied to a chair and forced to watch the bad, ham-fisted script and crappy all-too-convenient plot devices play out over a pseudo-religious tone that was ridiculous from the first frame.

There's a reason why the movie only made a $125 million domestic (even with the 3D and IMAX upcharge), because it sucked. Hard. It's only made $302 million (as of today) worldwide. In comparison, TDKR is over

So like I said earlier, bring on the hate. It's not going to make a movie like Prometheus suck any less than it already does.

Great News!

Can't wait for this, SIr Ridley take your time. I'll be in line opening night the same as the first!

I liked the movie, but it did feel "incomplete". I think an extended addition on blu-ray and a sequel will solve those issue.

Prometheus doesn't deserve the hate...

I would like to see...
Shaw and David go to LV-426. This movie has received a lot of bad pub... it was thought provoking and one of the best films of 2012. Kudos to Scott.

Nobody's going to be watching Ted in 20 years. I don't think Prometheus will share that fate.

Which version of Prometheus? The theatrical version? The Director's cut? The super-secret special director's cut? The 'lost footage' super duper cut? Or the inevitable Director's Final cut?

Because they'll all suffer from the same crappy derivative script that had a vague plot (at best), no character development (or investment in the characters in the first place), and a sloppy fall from grace from a once, good director.

At least 'Ted' has the ability to be rewatched.

Before the Lindelof hate train starts, people should watch this: [link]

Around 13:45 he starts talking about Prometheus. He is a lot more honest and open about working with Ridley Scott on Jon Spaihts script than in interviews prior to the films release where he had to do his job, act positive and promote it. A very interesting watch, especially if you're interested in screenwriting.
