While Ridley Scott's Alien not-quite-prequel Prometheus was a box office success, many fans walked away disappointed with what they considered to be plot holes and unrealistic elements. Most of the blame was laid at the feet of screenwriter Damon Lindelof, as fans expected him to maintain the high standards of tight plotting and unflinching realism he brought to Cowboys & Aliens. So now Lindelof has taken his ball and gone home, protesting that he's too busy working on the Star Trek franchise and Brad Bird's Tomorrowland—and anyway, it was all Scott's fault. Also, the finale of »
This time last year Prometheus hit the theaters and every Xenomorph fan was amped. The chance to see Ridley Scott back in the directors chair for one of the most iconic science fiction films of all time, was an event that movie goers were not going to miss. So much so that it cost $130 million to make and worldwide brought in $403 million.

Ridley Scott's Prometheus sequel is moving forward, and 20th Century Fox has hired Jack Paglen (Transcendence) to write the film. As of right now, Scott is only attached as a producer on the film so there's a chance he won't be back to direct it. Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender are expected to reprise their roles though.
There's no information on what the story will entail, but one of the last things we heard was that Scott and the studio were having a hard time cracking the story. I just don't think those issues were as bad as they were made out to be. I'm sure they had some kind of plan in place while making the first film.
A lot of fans blamed Damon Lindelof for the ridiculous aspects of the first film, but they forget that making a movie is a collaborative effort, and Scott himself could »

The sequel to the controversial Prometheus has been in works since before the movie even hit theaters, and now the untitled sequel has a screenwriter. That would be Jack Paglen, who wrote Transcendence, the first film directed by Christopher Nolan’s cinematographer Wally Pfister that’s coming in 2014 (and has a helluva cast that includes Morgan Freeman, Johnny Depp, Cillian Murphy, Rebecca Hall and more). Clearly Paglen is on the rise.
Ridley Scott has agreed with the writer’s vision for the sequel, and will likely direct the film, from Scott Free Productions. Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace are likely to return for the second installment, though that hasn’t been set in stone. »

Prometheus 2: The sequel to a reboot that turned out to be a prequel is moving forward. Jack Palgen, a writer who recently gained heat with his script for Johnny Depp's upcoming sci-fi thriller Transcendence, is in talks to pen the screenplay for the sequel to Prometheus, which has not yet been given the green light by Fox. Ridley Scott will serve as one of the producers, with Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace hinted for returning roles. [Variety] Frozen: Disney's animated movie Frozen, based on a fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen, is due in theaters on November 27, but the studio has kept its cards close to the vest in regard to the look of the characters. New pictures (and the first trailer), however, reveal the film's heroine, voiced by Kristen...

Despite being one of the most divisive films in recent memory, Prometheus was a solid hit at the box office, with Ridley Scott's sort-of-prequel to his 1979 sci-fi classic Alien pulling in over $400 million worldwide, so it comes as little surprise that 20th Century Fox is keen to push ahead with plans for a sequel.
According to Variety, Fox has tapped screenwriter Jack Paglen (Transendence) to pen the script for the follow-up, which may or may not see Ridley Scott returning to the director's chair (although he is set to at least produce the film through his Scott Free banner). Both Noomi Rapace (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and Michael Fassbender (X-Men: Days of Future Past) are expected to return to the cast.

Ridley Scott and Fox have at last found a worthy scribe for the sequel to their 2012 galactic epic, Prometheus. The two are eyeing Jack Paglen, writer of Wally Pfister’s first directorial effort Transcendence, which will be released in April of next year.
Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender are expected to return as Elizabeth Shaw and android David. Though it is still uncertain if Ridley Scott will be directing, he will be producing with his company Scott Free Productions.
Not much is known of the sequel’s plot. All Scott has revealed in interviews is that while the first film was heavily rooted in the Alien franchise, the second instalment will stray farther.
Prometheus was written by Jon Spaihts and Damon Lindelof, and brought in over $400 million worldwide. Jack Paglen has a lot to live up to with the sequel, especially so since there are many, both fans and detractors, »

They say that if you play with fire, you're going to get burned. Just ask the Greek god Prometheus. He played with fire and got burned to the tune of an eternity of birds eating his innards. Some might say there's an object lesson in that.
But Ridley Scott is apparently not one of those people, because according to Variety, the legendary director is proceeding full speed ahead with "Prometheus 2" despite widespread critical derision and fan disappointment with last year's "Prometheus."
At least he'll be doing it with a new writer.
That's because, as we reported last month, "Lost" creator and "Prometheus" writer Damon Lindelof has decided not to return for another go-round. Instead, it seems that Scott and the suits and Fox have targeted screenwriter Jack Paglen (who is responsible for the upcoming Johnny Depp sci-fi epic "Transcendence") to pen the next installment.
Just what "Prometheus 2" will actually be about, »

Rejoice or groan, the sequel to Prometheus is moving forward. According to Variety, both Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender should return, and Jack Paglen – the writer of Wally Pfister’s directorial debut Transcendence — will be writing the script. Hopefully all the cohesive elements of the screenplay that help make sense of everything will end up being in the movie this time around. But what else is there? Prometheus was so divisive that you’re either currently pumping your fist or pumping your fist with a sad look on your face. About the only general consequence is that it keeps Ridley Scott in this universe a little longer — theoretically preventing him from doing other projects. Although, presumably it’ll be holding him back temporarily from going back into other wells he’s drained before. So there’s that. The only confusing thing about this news is that Variety is claiming that this entry will “feel more like its »

The Wrap reported yesterday that Ridley Scott has signed off on Jack Paglen's take on Prometheus 2. Paglen was apparently being rumored for the job for weeks, but now that Scott himself has signed off, things should get moving quickly and I would expect to hear about the official deal within the next week or so.
Paglen himself is still a bit of an unknown in Hollywood. Transcendence will be his first big screen showing, and it isn't due out until April of 2014. That said, Wally Pfister (who is known as the cinematographer for all of Nolan's Batman trilogy) has chosen Transcendence as his directorial debut, and it has actors connected to it such as Johnny Depp, Morgan Freeman, »

Last year Ridley Scott's return to the Alien franchise with Prometheus was hotly anticipated. But once fanboys and critics finally saw what Scott had in store with his big budget prequel, the film proved to be pretty polarizing, with some calling it a total disaster of plot holes and fan service, and others proclaiming it a misunderstood masterpiece. Nonetheless, the $130 million dollar production managed to pull in an impressive $403 million worldwide, paving the way for a possible sequel. By the end of last summer, Fox was urging Scott to consider the follow-up the film's final scene sets up so nicely. But rather than have Prometheus scribes Jon Spaihts and Damon Lindelof return to draft part two, Scott and Fox are looking elsewhere. The Wrap reports the filmmakers are circling Jack Paglen, a relative newcomer whose only screenwriting credit to date is Transcendence. But considering that is the directorial debut »
"Prometheus 2" is moving closer to reality. According to Variety, Jack Palgen is in talks to write the "Prometheus" sequel, which Ridley Scott will produce for Twentieth Century Fox. (Whether he directs as well is unclear.) Palgen is a new name among blockbuster screenwriters; his first credit won't happen until next year, as Palgen wrote the Johnny Depp film "Transcendence," which long-time Christopher Nolan cinematographer Wally Pfister is directing as his feature debut.
As had been reported earlier, "Prometheus 2" won't be written by original co-writer Damon Lindelof. The bête noire of many internet commenters wasn't able to continue work on the "Prometheus" sequel because of prior commitments. After a report claimed that Lindelof left the project abruptly, angering Scott and Fox in the process, Lindelof cleared things up in an email to Slashfilm:
If I take on too many projects at one time, there is a higher probability of those projects sucking. »

Ridley Scott's Prometheus was released last year on June 8 and 20th Century Fox and Scott Free Productions are already moving forward with the currently Untitled Prometheus Sequel - which may as well be called Prometheus 2 until something better comes along - as they've hired Trancendence Jack Paglen to write the screenplay, according to The Wrap.
As some of you may already know, Trancendence is the directorial debut by Christopher Nolan's Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister, a sci-fi film starring Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara and Morgan Freeman, so it's quite an impressive follow-up for the relative newcomer Paglen.

While working on the first "Prometheus" film, Ridley Scott brought on Damon Lindelof ("Lost") to help figure out the story for the movie. Lindelof ended up completely re-writing the script and taking the "Alien" prequel in a completely new direction. Scott and Lindelof worked out ideas for not only "Prometheus," but also it's follow-up. Unfortunately, Lindelof is too busy to return to write the actual script for "Prometheus 2." Now comes word that Scott and 20th Century Fox have hired newcomer Jack Paglen to write the sequel. Paglen doesn't have much of a resume, but he recently wrote the script for the upcoming "Transcendence" sci-fi thriller, which will be directed by "The Dark Knight" cinematographer Wally Pfister, and stars Johnny Depp, Morgan Freeman and Cillian Murphy. Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender are expected to return for "Prometheus 2," which will show us the planet of the engineers and introduce us to god. »
You may not have heard of Jack Paglen just yet, but don’t worry, you will. He’s the guy responsible for writing Christopher Nolan’s cinematographer Wally Pfister’s directorial debut, Transcendence. That’s quite the opening gig, and it has certainly got the attention of people in high places as Paglen will once again go sci-fi for the sequel to the Alien prequel that is Prometheus.
Prometheus may not have been everyone’s cup of tea, mostly because it just wasn’t very good, but hopefully a new writer can inject sometension, heart, and soul. We have no idea about a plot just yet, as it could follow Noomi Rapace’s character, or just be a completely different beast altogether. It’s also unclear as to when Prometheus 2 will get underway, as director Ridley Scott is also working on a Blade Runner sequel.

The wheels appear to be in motion over at Fox regarding a potential sequel to Prometheus, with the studio reportedly in talks with a new screenwriter to get a script up and running. Ridley Scott has long been open about his view of the first film as the first part of a new franchise, but this is the first concrete sign that Fox is moving forward with the proposed sequel. Variety reports that Jack Palgen has been identified by the studio as the man to take the new film forward, and is currently in discussions with Fox over penning the...
