Michael Fassbender confirms Prometheus 2 is happening but doesn't know when

May. 9, 2014by: Alex Maidy

Just a couple of months ago, sources claimed that the untitled Ridley Scott film slated for 2016 would in fact be a sequel to PROMETHEUS. While we have yet to hear anything confirmed, Scott does have several films in development which includes a follow-up to the divisive 2012 sidequel to ALIEN. While we know a screenplay was written by Scott and Jack Paglen (TRANSCENDENCE) and later revised by Michael Green (GREEN LANTERN), we have yet to hear any confirmation that the movie was actually coming.

In an interview with Collider, PROMETHEUS star Michael Fassbender was asked about the potential for the sequel. Sitting alongside X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST co-star James McAvoy, Fassbender confirmed that PROMETHEUS 2 was coming, he just doesn't know when.

It would seem to me that if that 2016 date really was PROMETHEUS 2 that Fassbender would be aware of it. Rumors have placed filming for the sequel as beginning right after Ridley Scott wraps on EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS which would put it later this year. Otherwise, if Scott plans to jump into another film first, we likely wouldn't see PROMETHEUS 2 until after 2016. All I know is I hope the rumors of multiple David androids in the screenplay make it to the final cut of the film as there is never enough Michael Fassbender on the big screen. Well, unless you count SHAME in which case there was a little too much Fassbender.

PROMETHEUS 2 may or may not hit theaters on March 4, 2016.

With this sequel in development, Star Wars trilogy and Nolans sci-fi film, its great to see the passion for MORE space films in a generation of reboots. Obviously the first one had its flaws, and the more hardcore Alien fans didn't like it at all. I really did enjoy it and how it questions our existence as human beings. With saying that, I'd love to see a sequel with more Fassbender, more space and more Engineers!

Too much Michael Fassbender in Shame? I am going to have to strongly disagree with that statement! The world of cinema needs more full frontal.

*Ahem* On topic, I would be all for this. The first one was, as we've all realized by now, deeply DEEPLY flawed, but I still really enjoyed it, and would love to see another.

"From the writers of GREEN LANTERN and TRANSCENDENCE..."

Hmm. I'm all for the sequel and quite liked the first film for what it was, but Ridley, you might, um, want to get a couple more drafts in with new writers first.

I thought the same thing. Michael Green is a crappy writer.

I thought the first one was a good, visually stunning film despite the flaws. Looking forward to seeing where the characters and story goes next and how much more they expand the Alien universe.
