“PROMETHEUS 2″ planned for March 2016; Ridley Scott directing this fall


Shaw and David on the (space) road. Where do they go? We’ll find out in March 2016 when the Ridley Scott-directed sequel to his sort-of ALIEN prequel, PROMETHEUS will hit theaters.

Being rewritten by Michael Green (GREEN LANTERN), who’s also working with Scott on the developing new incarnation of BLADE RUNNER, The Wrap is reporting the PROMETHEUS follow-up is planned to be more terrifying tone (they used the scientific term, “alien-y”). Their sources have also revealed multiple David androids will feature in, giving the audience more Fassbender for their Fassbuck.

No further plot was available, but the first film’s finale found Shaw and David’s decapitated Android head set a course for the Engineer home planet. In PROMETHEUS, Noomi Rapace’s Dr. Shaw leads an expedition to find our celestial ancestors and ancient engineers of humankind. Shaw and the crew of Prometheus, including Michael Fassbender’s awesome android, eventually find a base of the Engineers where they harvested a biological weapon, one who merges with what it attacks and eventually leads to the Xenomorph, as we know it.

Expect PROMETHEUS 2 in March 2016.

    The best science fiction picture in the last decade. Visually remarkable, building on the philosophy of Blade Runner in interesting ways and featuring one of the great sci-fi leads. The Gene Roddenberry speech at the end still makes me a bit teary. The birth scene is perhaps the best distillation of the entire body horror genre in existence. The pace, lighting and performance of that scene is staggering. It is a positive, uplifting story of humanity while also being truly frightening. Saw it first on a huge screen in 3D and it blew my mind. Plot hole critics can eat a big fat dick and be cynical, condescending assholes to each other and not to fully developed human beings. For those who don’t fear big imagination — because they actually fucking have one — and know that there is way more to this movie this is great news.
