Green Lantern writer hired for Prometheus sequel; set for 2016 debut

1 year agoby:

The reviews of PROMETHEUS were sort of interesting. I meet people who either gets the idea of the film and where it was going, or they think it’s absolute garbage. Maybe that’s just the mentality of folks around here, but I’ve seen it online as well. You guys liked the ALIEN prequel, right? As someone who loves ALIEN, it took me at least two times before getting into it. I felt it was a little slow at first. I don’t know if I just had to be in the right mindset or what.

Ridley Scott and co-writer Jack Paglen (TRANSENDENCE) have been finished with his draft of the PROMETHEUS sequel for some time now. Originally the film was set to release in 2014 or 2015. Multiple sources are telling The Wrap that the “Untitled Ridley Project” of 2016 is indeed PROMETHEUS. Now it seems that a new writer has been hired to rework the PROMETHEUS 2 script.

GREEN LANTERN writer Michael Green will now take over penning duties. Green recently worked with Ridley on the new BLADE RUNNER.

Currently there are no other details on what PROMETHEUS 2 might be about except that there will be multiple David droids on the screen at once, which is fine by me. More Michael Fassbender the better.

PROMETHEUS 2 is scheduled for March 4, 2016.

What do you guys think about Green as the new writer?

GREAT NEWS! Prometheus was not a stand alone prequel, and deserves more

Bring on Prometheus 2! I highly enjoyed the first one, but could not settle on it being a stand alone prequel. I would love to see what happens next with Paradise.
Not a fan of The Green Lantern movie, but honestly people. This is a website of movie fans, it's no secret that the finished film is not always what was written by the screenwriter of the script, especially when there is more than one writer before production begins. Producers, directors, studio executes, even the actors can

Hell Yes!

I don't like the idea of the Green Lantern writer re-working the script but a Prometheus sequel....fuck yes! People love to debate this movie's ''flaws'' or wether or not it was an intelligent film. Who gives a shit? Have a coke and a smile and shut the fuck up. The movie was fun no matter what and the sequel most doubtably will be too. Also there will be a third film so if you hated this movie get ready to be butt hurt for two more sequels. Or get over it......your chhoice.

I love how you discourage debating a film's merits on a movie-fan/discussion website. You're about as brilliant as Prometheus...

Whatever this means for the sequel, at least it's not being written by Lindelof.

I hope it's gonna be good. I liked the first one despite it's flaws. Maybe the second one will fix some issues people had with the first one.

Let's not be quite so condescending.

Some people "got" Prometheus just fine, they just still weren't impressed.

Thank You! I generally like the writers on this site, but when it comes to this movie most of them seem to act like those who thought the film was a disappointment couldn't comprehend its so called "brilliance." Maybe that's just me, but that's the impression I get from them. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed what I could out of Prometheus, being mostly the visuals, Fassbender, and the action. However, this is hardly what you would call intelligent, thought provoking sci-fi. The questions it deals

However, this is hardly what you would call intelligent, thought provoking sci-fi. The questions it deals with, (and barely scratches the surface of) could of potentially lead to something thought provoking, but the writing was more concerned with raising questions and trying to pass the movie off as intelligent just because it had the balls to ask them. I'm sorry, but no one would say that a man or woman who merely brought up a complex topic in conversation ,like string theory or whatever, was intelligent just for bringing the topic up. Asking questions is fine, but you have to try and at least explore some possible answers to those questions, even if you refuse to answer them fully for the purpose of maintaining "mystique." I feel like if I asked Lindelof for some concrete answers he would just smile at me with that stupid, cryptic, fan-boy smile of his; acting like he has the answers when in actuality he has no idea what the hell he's talking about. There's too much contradiction of internal logic for anyone to make complete sense out of this movie.

Very well put psycheoutseteve. I don't want to make sweeping blanket statements like the kind we were just addressing, but I really am curious how many of the people who were so dazzled by the perceived brilliance of this film have seen Metropolis or Solaris. Two films, along with many others, that I feel are not just an a different intellectual level, but in an entirely different ballpark from this one.

Well put.

I was expecting some kind of magnificent Ridley Scott opus, but what I ended up with was a real shit sandwich. I've watched the director's cut and it's a little better.

They still haven't explained how they achieve FTL flight. Am I supposed to believe the Nostromo was capable of FTL speeds? Seriously, you think Prometheus would have wrapped that huge plot hole up.

Better a sequel to Prometheus than Blade Runner. Hopefully they answer the questions left open in the first movie. I also hope they bring back Fassbender and Rapace. People complain about Prometheus, but it was still better than Alien 3, Alien Resurrection, or any of the AvP movies.

Fine by me. Obviously everyone on this website knows how I feel about Green Lantern and I loved Prometheus despite the the flaws it had.

Overreactions

Let's not all overreact about this. Michael Green was one of four writers, and shouldn't shoulder all the blame. He has been involved in television for many years and has done some good work there. Consider this: another writer on Green Lantern was Greg Berlanti, who went on to develop the series Arrow. You know: the one that is currently highly acclaimed.

It doesn't matter anyway. People ignore the fact that Ridley Scott guided Damon Lindelof's script; he will do the same with Green.

From the writer of Green Lantern? Definitely not a good sign. I'd love to see a sequel to Prometheus but if the writer is from Green Lantern movie that's not a good sign.

I got it...

I just didn't like it. The movie was more ideas than anything - that were left so completely wide open it's laughable. For me the movie is lazy and insulting.

This makes perfect Hollywood sense. Hire a guy that wrote a bad movie with a bad story to write a script for the sequel of another bad movie with a bad story.....success!

So the report was true that it is Prometheus 2, which is great to hear. I definitely welcome a sequel since the question on why The Engineers created us and then wanted to destroy us, has been bugging me every since watching Prometheus.

I always assumed that either (1) The Engineers created humans as food for their perfect weapon (Aliens) and decided to end the Aliens' food supply to curb their spread, or (2) they realized that humans were a far more dangerous weapon than the Aliens, and humans needed to be destroyed before they spread to other planets.

@Smokescreen2, interesting take on it. I always assumed that they made us in their image, then they sent a messanger (Jesus) to teach us how to be brothers and how to live properly. We killed him exactly 2000 years ago when the pay load was suppose to hit Earth with the Aliens. But thats only my opinion.

It was my assumption based on how we see the engineers running that there was some kind of contamination with the black goo, which I was under the impression was the weapon they were developing, and they attempted an evacuation. The engineers that got away realized that one had been infected and dropped him on the closest uninhabited planet and left him in quarantine. Then it was the properties of this black goo to be able to break down at the genetic level and recombine using other elements

Then it was the properties of this black goo to be able to break down at the genetic level and recombine using other elements found to create life that would eventually evolve into humans. Then they returned later to find what happened to their comrade and found life instead. Then maybe we did something to anger them so they left us but by that point they had already taught us so much. They would fit the description of the gregori class of angel that taught humans about sciences and the stars.

I'm glad Scott is committed to at least setting out to finish what he started in Prometheus. Though the film had its issues, it had several qualities that pegged many questions that I want to see the answers to. I hope the initial sequel title idea is still Paradise.

Can't just blame the screenwriter

It took many people to completely screw up Green Lantern, it wasn't just the script. Prometheus I've read was down to bad editing as to why it made no sense. It doesn't look good but I'll give it until I see the trailer to trash it.

So the question of Ridley Scott's secret project has been answered? I enjoyed Prometheus and welcome a sequel if we get to see Xenomorphs now. I would love to see the Engineers home planet also.
