Ridley Scott Says, Prometheus 2 Will Explain Why Engineers Created "Evil Biology"

The Prometheus sequel will pick up where the last movie left off, in that, Noomi Rapace's Elizabeth Shaw and Michael Fassbender's David the android will be headed to homeworld of the Engineers to have them answer a very important question: Why did they create humans and then try to eradicate us? But that won't be the only question sequel will answer, according to Scott.

"You have to follow through," Scott told Collider when asked what his goals are for the sequel. "It starts off with a very grand idea—or a grand question, really. Who are they and why did they create such evil biology and bacteriology? And [in creating], to protect themselves from what? So the questions are answered there, or rather, beginning to be answered in Prometheus 2."

Prometheus 2 will begin filming in February of 2016.
