‘Prometheus’ Sequel Confirmed, Fassbender And Rapace Return!

It’s been openly stated by both director Ridley Scott and writer Damon Lindelof that Prometheus is the first in a planned trilogy all set to bridge the franchise and Scott’s 1979 classic Alien. The Hollywood Reporter confirms at least a sequel.

The $130 million-budgeted film grossed a solid but not spectacular $303 million globally, putting it right on the franchise bubble. Twentieth Century Fox confirms to the mag that Scott and the studio actively are pushing ahead with a follow-up (stars Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace are signed) and are talking to new writers because Prometheus co-scribe Damon Lindelof might not be available (good news for those of you who hate his non-explanatory writing style).

Ridley is incredibly excited about the movie, but we have to get it right. We can’t rush it,” says Fox president of production Emma Watts, who also has overseen the successful reboots of the X-Men and Planet of the Apes franchises by turning over the reigns to innovative filmmakers.

According to the site, a Prometheus sequel would be released in 2014 or 2015. Write your reviews of the first film here.

    Hell yeah, please be a trilogy…Prometheus is easily my fave flick of the year so far, felt so epic, looked beautiful in IMAX 3D, best looking since Avatar (the look, that is). The one complaint that everyone has, which just floors me every time, is that there’s way too many questions unanswered…..Imagine, if you will, it’s1979, you are going to see Alien for the first time, you know nothing about the future franchise, that movie had tonnes of questions, who’s that dude in the ship seat, what are those face huggers, where do they come from……patience people. The best movies out there (Darko) make you fill things in with interpretation, and you have to use your minds. We are in this internet world where people want answers ASAP. That just bugs me, sorry for the rant…..Okay, I’m alright now…

    a brilliant in terms of visuals film fell falt due to the terrible characterization and lack of logic. Still will see this but i was massively disappointed 🙁

  • This will be trash

    Prometheus was not a case of “something mysterious behind the scenes and we just don’t understand alien motives” and more of a case of “lets blow something up and have action fight sequences, how can we do that AND cash in on a franchise that needs nothing added to it’s mythos!?”

    The beauty of alien was it’s mystery and isolation, don’t fill that with chubby face beach body builders, who clearly have no motives or thought out process what soever.

    The sequel will be the same thing. Maybe in the next one, Welen Yutani will give some space explorers a trillion dollars to find Jesus, because his face appeared in toast.

    @T.J.Barber – “A franchise that needed nothing added to its mythos”!? Really? Why don’t you just go ahead and say we don’t need to invent anything new because what we have already works? That might just be the lamest argument I’ve ever read on BD. I also strongly advice you to stay off the pipe before all those beach body builders and toast Jesuses are coming to claim your soul.
