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).
