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.
