Prometheus 2 is happening and shooting will start in January 2016

7 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Prometheus 2 will reportedly start production in January next year.

The sequel to Prometheus, the Alien prequel released in 2012, was announced as in development early last year.

However, the film has now confirmed a shoot date of January 2016, according to Total Film.

"I've got back into the sci-fi thing, I kind of adore it," director Ridley Scott told the magazine in a new interview.

Prometheus 2 will be written by Green Lantern screenwriter Michael Green. However, the sequel will not have the fan favourite Xenomorphs.

Scott also gave his view on upcoming sci-fi epic Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens.

"Star Wars is a juggernaut," he says. "Good, bad or indifferent. And with that director [Jj Abrams], it ain't gonna be indifferent, it's gonna be really interesting."

Prometheus stars Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace will reprise their roles as David the android and Elizabeth Shaw in Prometheus 2.

Prometheus 2 will start shooting in January

10 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

I can’t think of a movie that has divided critics, and my mates, more than Prometheus. The ultimate Marmite movie that you either loved or loathed in equal measure. The film did pretty well at the box-office (it is the most successful film in the Alien franchise with worldwide takings sat at over $400 million), and a sequel has been in the works for a little while, but we’re hearing via Total Film that Ridley Scott is planning to shoot the movie in January of next year, supposedly for a 2017 release.

We’re also hearing that both Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace are set to return, though we can’t say the same of the famous Xenomorph.

“The beast is done,” Scott said in a recent interview. “Cooked. I got lucky meeting Giger all those years ago. It’s very hard to repeat that. I just happen to be »

'X-Men: Apocalypse' Photo Has Storm Watching Over Cairo

20 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Bryan Singer showed off some movie magic from the set of X-Men: Apocalypse earlier today with a new photo that features Alexandra Shipp as Storm. The top half of the photo shows the actress on a Montreal soundstage, while the bottom half of the image features a monitor where we see Storm looking out over the desolate landscape of Cairo, with the massive Egyptian pyramids seen in the background. The director revealed on his Instagram page that this real-time shot was made possible through technology known as SimulCam.

SimulCam was developed by director James Cameron for his record-breaking blockbuster Avatar, which allows filmmakers to see CGI-created backdrops used in real time on the set, while shooting in front of a green screen. Before SimulCam was developed, filmmakers like Bryan Singer wouldn't be able to see these CGI elements integrated into the shot until the post-production process. But now he can »

Fassbender and McAvoy Sign for More 'X-Men' Movies?

20 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

X-Men: Apocalypse is said to bring an end to the trilogy that started with 2011's X-Men: First Class and continued in last year's X-Men: Days of Future Past. The cast shared between all three films are reportedly done with the franchise, with Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult earlier confirming that they will not likely be back in future movies. The same was thought to be true of Michael Fassbender's Magneto and James McAvoy's Charles Xavier, as their contracts are running out, too. But a new rumor claims that both actors have signed on for more movies.

Both Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy have expressed interest in carrying their Mutant leader characters into the future, with neither ever stating they were officially done with the popular franchise, which kicked off in 2000 with X-Men. The rumor claims that both actors signed new deals this past weekend, just as Channing Tatum solidified his Gambit deal, »

'Prometheus 2' Starts Shooting in January 2016

21 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in March 2014, 20th Century Fox set a March 4, 2016 release date for the highly-anticipated sci-fi sequel Prometheus 2, while bringing on Michael Green (Green Lantern) to write the screenplay. But soon after, the sequel got delayed. We haven't heard much about the production since then. Director Ridley Scott has revealed to Total Film magazine that he is scheduled to start shooting Prometheus 2 in January 2016. 20th Century Fox has not issued a new release date quite yet, but the studio announced last year that Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children has taken over the March 4, 2016 release date.

The director wouldn't divulge any plot details for Prometheus 2, but Ridley Scott did add that he is interested in making sci-fi movies again, stating, "I've got back into the sci-fi thing, I kind of adore it." The filmmaker's last movie, the Biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings, only took in $65 million domestically, »

Rumor: Michael Fassbender And James McAvoy Sign On For More X-men Movies

22 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Both Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy have previously expressed interest in returning as Magneto and Professor X once their contract comes to an end with X-Men: Apocalypse, and it now appears as if Channing Tatum's Gambit deal wasn't the only one closed by Fox this weekend. According to a new report, the duo have reportedly signed on to reprise their respective roles in future X-Men movies. So, both characters clearly survive the events of the 2016 movie anyway!  The franchise wouldn't be the same without them, and while it's not clear how many more movies Fassbender and McAvoy will star in, we obviously haven't seen the last of the two mutant friends turned enemies in Fox's X-Men Universe. It's also mentioned that Nicholas Hoult and Jennifer Lawrence are wanted by the studio to return as Beast and Mystique, but as has been previously reported, the latter seems unlikely to commit. »

The Current X-Men Franchise May Go On A Lot Longer Than We Thought, Get The Details

3 August 2015 10:39 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The future of the core X-Men movies seems to be in flux. With X-Men: Apocalypse, out in May 2016, bringing the trilogy that began with First Class to an end, some of the cast members have put their future with the franchise up for debate.

McAvoy, Fassbender To Do More "X-Men"?

3 August 2015 10:25 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

With the contracts for the 'First Class' cast members of "X-Men" about to finish up with the currently shooting "X-Men: Apocalypse," there's been questions regarding where the franchise might go next.

Would it reboot again? Would it shift away from the main mutants and focus on some of the younger faces introduced in 'Apocalypse'? Turns out it might be sticking to its current formula a bit longer.

Heroic Hollywood reports today that the franchise's two key male stars, Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy, have apparently signed on to continue in their respective roles of Magneto and Professor X in more "X-Men" movies.

The site suggests their deal closed over the weekend, right about the same time Channing Tatum's Gambit deal was done, but it doesn't say for how many more films. Both Fassbender and McAvoy have previously expressed interest in returning but weren't committed either way, and there's no »

Weinstein Co. and Radius Figure Out Hybrid Amazon Release Plan for Fassbender's 'Macbeth'

3 August 2015 9:50 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

The Weinstein Co., which has an ongoing deal with Netflix, is playing the field, getting into bed with production chief Ted Hope and distribution head Bob Berney at Amazon Studios to release Michael Fassbender vehicle "Macbeth." The second high-profile Fassbender movie will hit theaters in December (no exact date as yet) not via Weinstein but its nimble digital subsidiary Radius-twc, followed two to three months later by exclusive VOD streaming for Amazon Prime subscribers, The Hollywood Reporter reports. Thus Amazon Prime offers its subscribers a first-run art film. Australian filmmaker Justin Kurzel's bloody Shakespeare adaptation, which costars Marion Cotillard, played well at Cannes but did not earn any prizes; it's more art film than crossover material.  Hope and Berney are evaluating the release plan for each Amazon film on a case by case basis; they may decide to open Spike Lee's "Chi-Raq" in theaters this December to qualify for the Oscar. »

Ridley Scott’s Prometheus 2 To Begin Shooting In Early 2016

3 August 2015 9:46 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Love it or loathe it, Ridley Scott’s pseudo-prequel Prometheus pulled in over $400 million at the worldwide box office in 2012, and if a report by Total Film is to be believed, the esteemed filmmaker will return to expand a universe that spans three and a half decades early next year.

That’s right, after work is wrapped up on his adaptation of Andy Weir’s The Martian, Scott will remain in the sci-fi genre and kickoff production on Prometheus 2 in January of 2016. As quoted in the print issue of the magazine, the director has seemingly caught the sci-fi bug once again – no facehuggers this time, thankfully – and he can’t wait to get started on the anticipated sequel.

“I’ve gotten back back into the science fiction thing. I kind of adore it.”

Given that Scott shuffled the original start date in order to work on The Martian, while »
