Ridley Scott confirms that Prometheus 2 will be his next movie

08.27.2015

Earlier this month we found out that production on the PROMETHEUS sequel was hoping to get underway in January 2016, which would seem to indicate that it would be Ridley Scott's next film after THE MARTIAN. While speaking with Empire during THE MARTIAN press-tour, Scott confirmed that PROMETHEUS 2 would indeed be his next movie; in fact, he's already begun scouting for locations.

They faced another challenge when the film’s release date was brought forward. But according to Damon, the typically fast-working Scott didn’t worry. “Ridley was done with the movie about two weeks after we shot!” he smiles. “I was already on to my next movie!” adds Scott. “I was starting to look for locations for my next movie, which is Prometheus 2.”

Unfortunately PROMETHEUS couldn't hope to live up to its amazing marketing, but I was still able to enjoy the film for what it was and very much hoped that we wouldn't be left hanging. Both Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender will be returning for the sequel which should find Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and David's head (Michael Fassbender) on a voyage to discover the home world of the Engineers encountered in PROMETHEUS. As for the potential inclusion of the Alien we've grown to love, Scott has previously said that he'd like to introduce a "fresher form of alien" in the sequel. As to what he means by that, I've no idea but I'm very excited to find out.

What would you most like to see in the PROMETHEUS sequel?

Extra Tidbit: Even if the final film ended up being complete garbage, which it didn't, that teaser would still rank among my favourite teasers of all time.

What would I like to see in a Prometheus sequel? Characters that make more informed decisions, especially if they're scientists or professionals of some kind. You're not convincing anyone when your scientists behave like spoiled children and complete morons. Secondly, how about some internal logic that doesn't betray itself or any theory still embraced today, (Darwinism) without a damn good explanation? I'm not really a fan of cinema sins, but they had it right when they said "there is no

You're not convincing anyone when your scientists behave like spoiled children and complete morons. Secondly, how about some internal logic that doesn't betray itself or any theory still embraced today, (Darwinism) without a damn good explanation? I'm not really a fan of cinema sins, but they had it right when they said "there is no measuring the amount of stupid in this film." There was just way too much stuff that didn't make any sense. Thirdly, Scott...I understand you're resistance to harp on the alien creature, which admittedly has seen its fair share of exposure in other films, but stop trying to intentionally distance yourself from the original Alien. This project only exists because of Alien and its ties to that film are probably the only thing that keep people interested in a sequel. Plus, you sound like George Lucas calling lightsabers "laser swords" when you call the Aliens "dragons." Are you so far apart from something you created that now you resent it and can't properly refer to it?

Also, kill off Shaw because she sucks as a character. When your lead character believes that aliens seeded earth and created mankind without one bit of evidence shown in the film pre-mission to suggest it, she's a moron. It's like saying "aliens created cotton candy, and I don't know that but it's what I choose to believe.

Aside from some silly character decisions after some multiple viewings, you start to see what a great movie Prometheus is, it's really well made by Scott, so I look forward to see what he will bring to the sequel. When it comes to science fiction it can be 50/50, but Ridley's take on the genre is never really so far out there that it takes away from the story, that's the problem I have with most sci-fi films. The Martian looks great as well & I will be checking that out.

I never really understood all the hate for Prometheus. I get some things were a little too far-fetched (i.e. Charlize Theron running from crashing ship straight instead of running to her left or right), but none of that really detracted from the overall product nor made the movie any less enjoyable. I liked it and I'm looking forward to the follow up.

As many were pissed off with the first Prometheus, I really enjoyed everything about it. Really really wish they had kept the dialogue between the Engineer and crew in the final cut.

Really looking forward to this. I really enjoyed Prometheus. Scott is still the master of contemporary science fiction in my mind.

I think that's the plot of the sequel is that Shaw and David end up on the Engineers home planet. Not sure how the Xenomoprhs would work into the story though, but it would be a nice addition.

And here I was worried that we would never get a sequel to Prometheus or that Scott wouldn't live long enough to direct a sequel, but I'm glad to hear the ball is finally rolling. Here's hoping the sequel is better well scripted.

Really curious to see Fassbender's performance in this if its just his head. But I loved the first one, despite its flaws.

We both know Scott will come up with a creative way to have David get his body back.

I'm in the minority that loved the sh*t out of Prometheus, warts and all. I'm interested to see where the sequel goes, considering the only ones who survived the first one were Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender's decapitated head.

Can't wait!!

I see this Prometheus as a trilogy. I hear most of P2 is set on Earth with the death of Noomi Rapace happening midway. It is also rumored that Fassbenders character will "die" as well because he will be busy filming Assassins Creed at the same time.

There will be two big monsters on Earth where the story unfolds, but still no Xenomorphs. The plot revolves around Paradise, the origin of the Engineers and Shaw's quest to find it. But something happens to her and the transmissions of her

But something happens to her and the transmissions of her travels reach Earth many years later. It is possible the new monsters are early Xenomorph style monsters that have xenoed from David and Dr. Shaw and brought back to earth by whoever finds their wreckage...
