‘Prometheus’ Sequel Won’t Shoot Until 2016?

Prometheus_movie_05 (2)

Flash forward to 2016. Ridley Scott begins production on Prometheus 2. I’m excited, but only marginally excited. I don’t really want to wait five years for a Prometheus follow-up, by then I want a new Alien movie…

With that said, Scott tells Empire that fans are going to have to wait a long time as he’s already lined up his next two films, even though the Prometheus sequel is apparently completed.

“Prometheus 2 is written,” says Scott, but doesn’t indicate when it might start shooting. “I have already got the next two films ready to go. That will be 2014, 2015…

One of those is biblical epic Exodus, which has already lined up Christian Bale (Moses), John Turtorro (Pharaoh Seti), Alien alum Sigourney Weaver (Tuya, Seti’s wife) and Joel Edgerton (Pharoah Ramses), but the other is “this science-fiction thing.

I think Evan Dickson’s prediction that we’ll never see a sequel may be spot on. I’ve officially put this out of my mind.

    Well even though this may be a bummer for the fans, its not that unrealistic. Some films that aren’t sequels take forever to get rolling, lets just hope the next two years he uses to polish that script, so that we have a kick-ass sequel.

    I would love to see a stand alone Alien film as well. In similar vein to the original scary sci fi. Not action, not boring. Scary subtext! As for P2 if you think about it thats not too bad… it could be better but also we could never see another sequel.

    I want a new Alien movie now! Done right, of course. As for Prometheus, I’ve got nothing against it going in the direction probably unrelated to the Xenomorphs (judging by its ending), as long as it’s good and without plot holes.I love Prometheus and would hate to see an inferior sequel. I’m sure Scott can do it, only when? And if at all?

    i DO love ALIEN & ALIENS but we’ve had enough ALIEN (whether in it’s own franchise or in the AvP movies) films for a while. i’m the first to admit that PROMETHEUS had some glaringly bad moments in it (petting the vagina snake. lol) but i’d much rather have a P2 (hopefully it will explore the Engineer’s world a lot more) than another ALIEN film, at least for now.

    I really want a Prometheus sequel, as I loved the first one, and I so badly want to see where Noomi Rapace’s character is about to take us.

    today, a movie sequel has to be done asap or people lose interest. aliens didnt come out till like six years after alien. if this is the case with prometheus, by todays standards this script will be “old”, scraped and the whole project given a re-boot.
