Ridley Scott to begin production on Prometheus 2 in January 2016

08.03.2015

As Ridley Scott has been busy of the last few years with films like EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS and the upcoming THE MARTIAN, things have been quiet regarding PROMETHEUS 2. We know that the sequel was greenlit but not much else has been cemented. Muchael Green was brought in to redraft the script penned by Jack Paglen, but the previously announced release date of March 4, 2016 seemed impossible.

The latest issue of Total Film seems to clear up some logistics by stating that production on PROMETHEUS 2 is now scheduled to begin in January 2016. That likely means that we will not see the finished movie until late next year or, more likely, early 2017.

Both Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender are returning for PROMETHEUS 2. Damon Lindelof, the punching bag of fanboys across the Internet, is not returning beyond a producer capacity. Director Ridley Scott has also confirmed that we will not see any of the xenomorphs populating the sequel. Seeing as Neill Blomkamp is entering production on his new ALIEN film, we could be seeing multiple entries in this expanding franchise over the course of less than two years.

I loved PROMETHEUS, warts and all, and hope the sequel takes us in a totally different direction that goes away from the ALIEN mythology and expands the brilliant fictional universe Scott himself helped create.

After multiple views I grew to appreciate Prometheus more, let's just hope they have better characters & fill in the plot holes & give us how much it really does tie in with the Alien franchise. The Martian looks awesome BTW.

Prometheus didn't have plot holes. Just because something isn't explicitly explained doesn't make it a plot hole. A plot hole is something in the story that either contradicts something else in the story, or that makes no sense according to the film's internal logic.

The Alien movies always creeped me out. I watched all of them in prep for Prometheus. They still creep me out. BUT I loved Prometheus, so this is welcome news. Can't wait to see where the story goes. Now if we could just get Tron 3 back on, that would be great.

Ok Scott, you somehow got this greenlit, so it's a second chance. Don't screw this up like last time! No pressure...

He didn't screw it up last time. Prometheus was brilliant. It's not his fault if it went over your head.

I really do hope that the final movie does end on LV 422 that way it can officially tie in to why that ship is there. It makes sense not to add the Xenomorphs into the fray as it has noting to do with this story wise for the second film. I am extremely excited for Blomkamp's version of the Alien movies. But I think the Queen alien that laid the eggs on the ship that is crashed on LV 422 should have a tie in for the 3rd film.

Really enjoyed the first one despite its flaws. Visually it was fantastic, and with a tighter script it could make up for some of the mistakes that the original one committed.
