Prometheus 2 on it’s way


We all know that Fox and Ridley Scott wanted to make Prometheus the first of a series of films but with the rather lacklustre takings and the pretty negative reviews I am really surprised to hear that a sequel is on its way.

The end of the first film pretty mush determines where the next film would be headed in more ways than one. We know that Fassbender and Rapace have signed on for more. I am still willing to see where this takes us but it has to be a LOT better than the first one or it will kill the franchise once and for all.

According to the trade, Fox and Scott are eager to return to the world of the “Alien” quasi-prequel. The studio and the director “actively are pushing” toward a “Prometheus” sequel and are meeting with potential writers, since the original’s co-writer, Damon Lindelof, is off busy doing one million other things at the moment.

Even though Lindelof may be out of the picture, Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender’s head have already signed on, thanks to clauses in their original contracts. It looks like we may see the further adventures of Dr. Elizabeth Shaw and David 8’s disembodied head.
Fox’s president of production, Emma Watts, stated that while everyone involved wants to do the project, waiting for the right time is a priority. “Ridley is incredibly excited about the movie, but we have to get it right. We can’t rush it,” she said.

It’s unclear whether Watts meant waiting for Lindelof’s schedule to clear up, but we’ll have to wait until at least 2014 or 2015 to see what’s next from the universe.
