‘Prometheus’ and ‘Blade Runner’ Scripts Completed

Prometheus-ds_04_finalbattle-190-1024x425

Last year 20th Century Fox hired Jack Paglen to write a script for Prometheus 2, Ridley Scott’s follow-up to his Alien prequel that, while performed well, was panned by critics.

Since then, Scott’s been working hard. A bit too hard. He’s got a lot on his plate and it’s chasing the director to have a serious logjam.

In an interview with EW he reveals that he not only has The Martian to deal with, but that both Blade Runner and Prometheus are in the pipeline. In fact, they’re ready to go.

When pressed as to when Blade Runner might happen, Scott says, “Probably after [The Martian].” He furthers his talk by addressing Prometheus, “That’s the problem,” Scott says. “I’ve got a lot of ducks in a row. But they’re all written.

While he doesn’t speak on Prometheus, he had this to say about Blade Runner:“[Blade Runner 2] is written and it’s damn good. Of course it involves Harrison, who is a survivor after all these years—despite the accident. So yes, that will happen.

Watch this spot for more as Scott figures out plans for the future (figuratively and literally).

    I really enjoyed Prometheus. It was one of those movies where the visuals/atmosphere is so good, I went along with it.

    if Ridley is too busy to direct PROMETHEUS 2, then have someone else direct it. from the sound of it it sounds like the movie will not happen or if it does not for many many years and let’s face it he’s not getting any younger.

    I bet Blade Runner 2 will look more like Star Wars than Episode 7!

    Panned by critics? How wrong you are.

    Is a 73% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes a “pan?”

    This website is the dumbest fucking thing.

    Blade Runner is a classic film but between the two i say we need a Prometheus sequel. We should of had one this year.

  • Ben Murphy

    Unnecessary sequels. Or, in the case of Prometheus, an unnecessary sequel to an unnecessary prequel.

  • wehoaks

    Apparently Brad’s opinion of Prometheus automatically cancels out the 73% of critics who enjoyed it. This site is such a shitfest anymore.

  • Red Right Return

    Someday Prometheus will be viewed by true fans and appreciated for what it is. A gift to fans of horror and science fiction. Thankfully, by then, no one will care what a bunch of internet hater geeks have to say on the matter.

    There’s four different visions of Blade Runner which one is the sequel going to follow?
