Prometheus is getting three sequel and the final one will connect with 1979's Alien, director Ridley Scott confirmed. In all this time, we still don't know why or who created the terrifying alien species that tangoed with Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) and the rest of the unfortunate humans.
Scott will direct all three of the Prometheus sequels, as he has no interest in letting the Alien franchise slip through his fingers again. "I’m trying to keep this for myself. I let the other one [Alien] get away from me – I shouldn’t have…," Scott said. "I’m trying to re-resurrect the beast and let if off the hook for a while because I’m coming back into the back-end of Alien 1. I’m gradually getting to Alien 1."
He is currently revising the script with Spectre screenwriter John Logan and he already has the next three films mapped out. "Prometheus 2 will start getting shot in February and I’ve already begun now so I know what the script is," he explained. "Then there will be another one after that and then maybe we’ll back into Alien 1, as to why? Who would make such a dreadful thing?"
Alien: Paradise Lost will begin filming in February for a 2017 release.
