Prometheus 2 Confirmed As Ridley Scott's Next Movie

When the first trailer for Ridley Scott's The Martian was released it leaped onto everyone's "Must See" list. A short time later, 20th Century Fox moved the release date up from late-November to early October. A joy for impatient moviegoers everywhere, but a scheduling bump like that can lead to headaches for a filmmaker as they get less time to polish their baby. Good thing Scott was done with the movie two weeks after shooting.

"I was already on to my next movie!" Scott told Empire Magazine. “I was starting to look for locations for my next movie, which is Prometheus 2."

There yah go, Scott confirmed Prometheus 2 will be his next film. Filming for it is expected to commence in January of 2016.

Prometheus (2012) - Ridley Scott, director of "Alien" and "Blade Runner," returns to the genre he helped define. With Prometheus, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.

    Odd that he's doing a sequel. Not really his style, but he's had a lacklustre decade or so.

    I'm just the opposite. I enjoyed the film, right until I realized that this was part of the Alien franchise.

    Same! I'm glad he stated he is looking at creating new Aliens for the next movie as he is sick of the dragon.

  3. I hope he continues with Walker and David's story, rather than rehashing the second movie if the rumors are true.
