‘Prometheus 2′: Still Happening, Now With More Michael Fassbenders

25 March 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Prometheus, are you reading this? No really, are you reading this? According to The Wrap, the “Untitled Ridley Scott Project” slated for 2016 that has been such a mystery for so long now is Prometheus 2. After 20th Century Fox announced a whole slate of movies through 2018, with a blip in the schedule for 2016 for Scott’s mysterious film of the unknown, speculations were ablaze at what the director could be cooking up as his next move. Another Blade Runner movie to follow up the reboot he’s currently working on? That would’ve been cool, wouldn’t it? A completely new film unconnected to a franchise without any expectations? Real rad. Instead, we’re getting the sequel to the unofficial prequel to the Alien franchise. It’s not as if this news wasn’t coming sooner or later; In 2012, Prometheus was a box office hit, raking in $400m worldwide. But what it wasn’t was a critical »

'Prometheus 2' Accidentally Divulges Multiple Michael Fassbenders Planned

25 March 2014 12:44 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Now that he's finished penning the script for the new 'Blade Runner' movie, Michael Green has been tapped by 20th Century Fox to rewrite the sequel to 'Prometheus' according to sources at The Wrap. Which hey whatever man, you gotta do you and after penning the script for the terrible 'Green Lantern' film, at least Green's ego has to be made of Teflon at this point because fan vitriol just rolls right off him. But just when I was about to dismiss this as just another bit of insidery news about the cogs in the movie machine, it turns out The Wrap was burying the lede. Four whole paragraphs in this ovary bombshell is just casually dropped. Additionally, the sequel is expected to feature multiple ‘David’ androids, which means there will be more than one Michael Fassbender on screen at the same time... *Record Scratch* Whoa whoa whoa, »

'Prometheus 2': Let's speculate wildly about the 'Alien' prequel-sequel

25 March 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

So Fox has officially announced a sequel to Prometheus, the Alien movie that didn’t really have any Alien aliens, but did have the aliens who made those aliens, and also a squid baby. Prometheus made a decent-though-not-tremendous chunk of change when it came out, and its mystery-laden plot inspired plenty of chatter. And whether you liked the movie or not, the prospect of a sequel is intriguing — mainly because it’s difficult to imagine what a sequel to Prometheus would be.

But let’s read the tea leaves for a moment. The original report at TheWrap said that the »

Ridley Scott and 'Green Lantern' scribe readying 'Prometheus 2' for 2016

25 March 2014 9:22 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Prometheus 2 — or a Prometheus sequel by some other name — might be in theaters as soon as March 4, 2016.

On Friday, Fox announced plans to release an untitled Ridley Scott movie on that date, and yesterday, The Wrap reported that Green Lantern writer Michael Green was re-writing the Prometheus 2 script with that target date in mind. (Green and Scott are also collaborating on a Blade Runner sequel.)

Production could begin on Prometheus 2 as soon as this fall, after Scott finishes his Moses film, Exodus, starring Christian Bale. According to the report, Michael Fassbender will return for the sequel, as »

Fox Hires Writer to Pen Prometheus 2 Script

25 March 2014 7:45 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Word on the sequel to Prometheus (Ridley Scott's Alien prequel) hasn't been very encouraging over the last couple of years, leaving many fans to wonder if it was ever going to actually happen.  Now it looks like we can set aside those worries as Fox has now hired a screenwriter to pen the script for Prometheus 2.  On top of that, sources are indicating that the Untitled Ridley Scott film Fox set a release date for last week, is the sequel.  Come inside for the news!

On one hand, Prometheus really disappointed me.  It felt like there was a better movie waiting to come out, but it got muddled up in a bunch of other things.  The ideas, however, presented were intriguing and worth following.  Because of that, I've still been holding out hope for a sequel, thinking that given the chance to flesh out these ideas more, we'll »

A More Alien-y 'Prometheus' Sequel Probably Isn't A Good Thing

25 March 2014 7:44 AM, PDT | MTV Movie News | See recent MTV Movie News news »

Last week, Fox sent the imaginations of genre fans running wild when their announcement of upcoming release dates featured two mystery projects: one based on a Marvel property and another being an unnamed Ridley Scott film for 2016. We're still guessing what the superhero movie might be — I'm betting on "X-Force" — but now The Wrap is claiming that the Scott film is, as many theorized, a "Prometheus" sequel and that there's a new ...

'Multiple Michael Fassbenders' likely in Prometheus 2

25 March 2014 6:18 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Ridley Scott's sequel to his 2012 sci-fi space story will feature many versions of the android David who Fassbender played in the first film

Ridley Scott's forthcoming sequel to science fiction puzzler Prometheus is likely to feature multiple Michael Fassbenders, according to The Wrap.

Screenwriter Michael Green is reportedly working on a storyline which features several different versions of David, the android portrayed by Fassbender in the 2012 film.

As well as taking over duties from Transcendence's Jack Paglen on Prometheus 2, Green is also working on the script for a proposed Blade Runner sequel. The fate of both Scott's iconic future visions therefore now rests in the hands of one man.

A source told The Wrap that Green would aim to cleave closer in style to the original Alien from 1979, which spawned multiple sequels. Prometheus took more than $400m at the box office, but some critics laid into »

Looking ahead to Prometheus 2

25 March 2014 5:49 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Ryan Lambie 26 Mar 2014 - 06:18

How could Prometheus 2 expand on its predecessor? As Fox confirms the sequel's March 2016 release date, we take a speculative look...

Nb: The following contains spoilers for Prometheus and much speculation about its sequel.

Ridley Scott's Prometheus was a film of opposites. It explored grand ideas about myths and creation, yet its setting was a desolate and largely empty planet that offered few conclusive answers. It was about alien beings blessed with godlike, unfathomable intelligence, yet the human scientists who went off to meet them were a neurotic, hapless bunch.

Reactions to Prometheus from critics and series fans were mixed, but the box office receipts piled high enough to encourage 20th Century Fox to consider a sequel. Ridley Scott and cast members Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender had been talking about the possibility of a follow-up as long ago as 2012, when the director »

Prometheus 2 Will Have More Michael Fassbender Than Any Movie Ever

25 March 2014 5:43 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

20th Century Fox

Unlike with the plot of the last movie, 20th Century Fox have lifted the mystery surrounding that “secret Ridley Scott project” everyone already suspected was Prometheus 2 and have revealed that yes, it really is Prometheus 2!

As the sequel to Scott’s loose Alien prequel from 2012, the Blade Runner director has agreed to get back on board for another installment… and this time he’s thankfully jettisoned writer Damon Lindelof out into the cold depths of space, and has replaced him with one Michael Green (who wrote The Green Lantern – wait, is that good thing?).

If fans are a little dubious to get quite as excited at the prospect of a Prometheus sequel as they were for the original movie (it let us all down, didn’t it?), it’s probably a good thing: this time around, audiences can at least step into theatres in the »

Green Lantern's Michael Green Re-Writing Prometheus Sequel

25 March 2014 3:11 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Though right now the majority of his filmmaking brain is focused on pushing Biblical epic Exodus through post-production, Ridley Scott has at least a few synapses firing in the direction of future projects. Among them is the Prometheus follow-up, which has just scored a new writer in the shape of Green Lantern's Michael Green.Scott and the scribe have form together: Green has also been working on the Blade Runner follow-up, so it makes sense for him to segue over to one of Scott's other big sci-fi ideas. He takes over from Transcendence's Jack Paglen, who wrote the original draft.Few details have emerged on the focus for the new movie, though The Wrap has ferretted out that it aims to up the terror, tighten the links to the familiar xenomorph and potentially feature multiple Michael Fassbenders (Fassbendi?) for those who like that sort of thing. And we know you're out there. »

Prometheus 2 release date confirmed for 2016, Michael Fassbender returns

25 March 2014 2:25 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Prometheus 2 will arrive in cinemas in March 2016.

The follow-up to Ridley Scott's 2012 science fiction blockbuster, which was rooted in the world of Alien, has also hired Michael Green to rewrite the original screenplay draft from Jack Paglen (Transcendence).

The Prometheus sequel storyline will reportedly be more in the vein of Scott's first Alien and feature Michael Fassbender playing multiple David androids, reports The Wrap.

Green recently worked with Scott on the script for his Blade Runner sequel. He previously wrote for Smallville and Heroes, and was a co-writer on Green Lantern.

20th Century Fox will release Prometheus ahead of a crowded 2016 blockbuster season, with Batman vs Superman, Captain America 3 and X-Men: Apocalypse due in cinemas.

Michael Green to Rewrite Prometheus 2; New Plot Details Revealed

25 March 2014 2:15 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Having completed work on the new Blade Runner movie, 20th Century Fox have now turned to Michael Green to rewrite Jack Paglen’s (Transcendence) initial draft of the Prometheus sequel.

When Fox set an “Untitled Ridley Scott Project” for March 4th, 2016, the majority of the prolific filmmaker’s fans immediately guessed that the date had been chosen for Prometheus 2.

If you were one of them, pat yourself on the back, as The Wrap has now revealed that it is indeed a sequel to Prometheus (which still doesn’t have a title as of right now) which will be released in 2016, with production set to start this Autumn once Scott has completed work on his Moses movie, Exodus.

Prometheus was very much a film which fans of Alien either loved or hated, and the sequel that Green is working on will apparently be much more “alien-y”, with a tone far »

Prometheus 2 set for March 2016, writer hired

24 March 2014 11:23 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

News Simon Brew 25 Mar 2014 - 06:22

It looks like the follow-up to Ridley Scott's Prometheus will film later this year, ahead of a March 2016 release.

Last week, a series of release dates for 20th Century Fox movies was revealed, one of which was listed for an as-then unnamed Ridley Scott film. We speculated then, as did half the internet, that the March 2016 date that had been earmarked was surely for Prometheus 2. Turns out that we, and half of the internet, were correct.

Ridley Scott is possibly - although not definitely - returning to the director's chair for Prometheus 2 (he may yet opt to produce), with production on the new film set to start in the autumn. That's once Scott is done and dusted on his upcoming movie, Exodus.

Michael Green has been hired to do some script work on the Prometheus sequel, having also worked on the »

Blade Runner Writer to Pen Prometheus 2

24 March 2014 10:56 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Michael Green must begin each day by plunging his hands into a bucket of rice, boxer-style, before churning out one of the infinite screenplays he has on his docket. According to The Wrap, the screenwriter behind Green Lantern, the upcoming Flash movie and the untitled Blade Runner project has now signed on to pen a new script for the Prometheus sequel. Director Ridley Scott clearly must have liked his work on the new Blade Runner. He also probably liked the fact that Green is some kind of inexhaustible screenplay-writing replicant. »

"Prometheus 2" Gets Scribe, Release Date

24 March 2014 9:56 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

"Green Lantern" scribe and "Kings" creator Michael Green has signed on to rewrite the script by Jack Paglen ("Transcendence") for the "Prometheus" sequel at 20th Century Fox.

Several sources claim that this film is the "mystery Ridley Scott project" which 20th Century Fox scheduled for March 4th 2016 last week.

The first "Prometheus," originally penned by Jon Spaihts and heavily re-written by "Lost" creator Damon Lindelof, was a sort-of prequel to Scott's 1979 "Alien" and left many unanswered questions.

This follow-up is said to have a "more terrifying tone", will include multiple versions of the android David (Michael Fassbender), and will be more akin to "Alien" than the grander sci-fi of the first "Prometheus". It's not known if the rumored title of "Paradise" will be used, but "Prometheus 2" is certain to be changed.

This marks the second script for Scott that Green is polishing, the scribe is currently polishing the script »

‘Prometheus 2′ Drops In 2016 & Bags ‘Green Lantern’ Writer

24 March 2014 6:59 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Remember when the news came out last week that Fox was dropping a mystery Ridley Scott movie on March 4, 2016? Well, according to The Wrap, it’s official. We’re getting Prometheus 2.

After working with Ridley Scott on a new Blade Runner movie, veteran screenwriter Michael Green (Green Lantern) has been hired to rewrite the untitled Prometheus 2 for 20th Century Fox.

Prometheus served as an ‘unofficial’ prequel to Scott’s seminal 1979 sci-fi movie Alien, and the sequel that Green will write aims to be much more “alien-y” and in line with the terrifying tone of past films in the franchise. Additionally, the sequel is expected to feature multiple ‘David’ androids, which means there will be more than one Michael Fassbender on screen at the same time. The ladies are going to love having multiple Michael Fassbenders to stare at! Beats keeping that handsome face of his in a mask »

Green Lantern Scribe to Rewrite Prometheus 2 - Story Details

20th Century Fox still plans on moving forward with that sequel to Prometheus 2, and they've hired Green Lantern scribe Michael Green to rewrite the script for it. Green also recently worked on the script for Ridley Scott's new Blade Runner movie. I can't say I'm a big supporter of him working on this movie as Green Lantern had a terrible script. 

The news comes from The Wrap, which also reveals that the movie will start production this fall and be released in March of 2016. Scott will start work on it when he is finished with his Moses film Exodus

‘Prometheus 2′ Gets a New Writer; 2016 Release Date Likely

24 March 2014 5:09 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Ridley Scott’s quasi-Alien prequel Prometheus is one of the more divisive sci-fi features churned out by Hollywood in recent times (seriously, we’re talking about love/hate reactions that are near Man of Steel passion levels), but its $400 million worldwide gross kept its sequel hopes alive and well.

More importantly, as far as justifying a franchise from a creative perspective goes, the film managed to leave many a moviegoer (even many of its detractors) exceptionally curious, as to what will happen next in the story – with semi-religious archaeologist Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and damaged, but still functioning android David (Michael Fassbender) headed to the home world of humanity’s architects-turned would-be destroyers, known as the Engineers.
