Prometheus 2 Could Shoot January 2016

4 August 2015 10:55 AM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

After leaving science fiction behind for most of his career, it seems Ridley Scott has caught a bug and won't let the genre go. And for fans of Prometheus, that's great news. In a recent interview with Total Film, Ridley Scott stated that production on the sequel could begin as early as January 2016.

“I’ve got back into the sci-fi thing, I kind of adore it,” said the 77 year-old director.

After Damon Lindelof stepped away from writing the sequel, Jake Paglen (Transcendence) was brought on board to pen, with a re-write coming in from Michael Green, who'd worked with Scott on the Blade Runner sequel.

Obvious questions arise about how and if the world of Prometheus intersects with Neill Blomkamp's upcoming Alien sequel. Luckily, the way Prom [Continued ...] »

Prometheus 2 Production Begins in January 2016

4 August 2015 8:21 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

It's been 3 years since Prometheus came out in theaters and despite a luke-warm reception, production for the sequel has a date.  

Ridley Scott is a busy busy man, nowadays.  This fall he has The Martian coming out, a crime drama with Leonardo DiCaprio, and Blade Runner 2.  With all these big time movies in the works, somehow Scott has found a way to do a sequel to the Alien prequel, Prometheus.

Prometheus 2 will be in production starting in January of 2016. This news comes via Total Film.

While many of us would surmise that Prometheus 2 would follow the events from the first one, Scott isn't looking to immediately follow up with the Aliens theme. In fact, he has said that he wants to introduce new aliens and move away from Xenomorphs.  

There is no word yet if Michael Fassbender or Noomi Rapace will be returning. However, one would think in »

Meet the crew in new The Martian clip

4 August 2015 8:11 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Directed by Ridley Scott, no stranger to the final frontier, The Martian has been adapted from the novel by Andy Weir. Starring a high profile cast which includes Matt Damon, Kate Mara, Jessica Chastain, Sebastian Stan and Michael Pena the tale tells of Astronaut Mark Watney (Damon) who finds himself stranded on Mars. On Earth, a team from Nasa furiously work to get him back whilst his shipmates devise their own dangerous rescue mission.

Science fiction and Ridley Scott tend to go hand in hand, even Prometheus is great if you forget it’s supposed ties to the alien franchise, and what we’ve seen of The Martian so far excites us. Today we can share this extra special video with you, our loyal readers. This clip gives you the chance to meet the crew of the Ares during their preparation for the mission.

Latest Featurette For Ridley Scott’s The Martian Asks If Ares-3 Crew Are Made Of The Right Stuff

4 August 2015 6:59 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ridley Scott may have one eye trained on his beloved Alien universe and, specifically, Prometheus 2, but before venturing back to Lv-223 and its surrounding galaxy, the filmmaker will be releasing a much more grounded sci-fi tale with The Martian.

Hot on the heels of last week’s striking screenshots, which pictured Matt Damon’s wayward astronaut Mark Watney marooned on the Red Planet, 20th Century Fox has debuted a new featurette for the film that gives us a better insight into the minds of the Ares-3 crew. After undergoing a ten-day period of isolation, each member of the mission is interviewed individually for a psych test, serving up a vertical slice of their distinct personalities; from Damon’s decorated astronaut to Jessica Chastain’s stern, no-nonsense commander, Melissa Lewis.

Containing no footage from The Martian itself, it’s an effective viral marketing campaign that uses Prometheus as a touchstone, »

Watch: Matt Damon Talks Aquaman In New Featurette For Ridley Scott's 'The Martian'

4 August 2015 6:24 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Slated for a glitzy World Premiere at Tiff, and buoyed by some great trailers and promos so far, Ridley Scott's "The Martian" is looking like the return to sci-fi many hoped for when he made "Prometheus": smart, entertaining, and hopefully not filled with with plot oddities. Another great featurette for the movie has landed so let's hope the full movie is as sharp as this. This latest look at the movie has the Ares 3 crew being interviewed by psychologist after having spent ten days in isolation as part of a training exercise. Matt Damon uses the time to reflect on Aquaman, Michael Pena riffs on "Goodfellas," while Jessica Chastain explains why she has no concerns about being a woman piloting the mission to Mars. Watch below. "The Martian" opens on October 2nd. »

Ridley Scott is said to be returning to space next year for the sequel to his Alien prequel, with returning stars Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender

While the critical response might have been mixed (The Guardian’s Peter Bradshaw called it “muddled”), the box office for Prometheus was a global success story.

Prometheus 2 will start shooting in January

4 August 2015 12:52 AM, PDT | 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 »

Prometheus 2 set to start shooting in January

3 August 2015 10:45 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ridley Scott may well direct Prometheus 2 after all, with the movie set to shoot early in 2016...

There'd been a suggestion over the past weeks that 20th Century Fox hadn't entirely decided if it wanted to press ahead with the long-mooted Prometheus 2. But let said suggestions we laid to rest. The sequel is indeed pressing ahead, and according to the latest issue of Total Film magazine, the new movie is set to shoot in January 2016.

That would suggest a 2017 release for the Prometheus sequel, which looks set to pick things up directly from the end of the previous film, and then leave things somewhere close to the beginning of the first Alien movie. Nothing in this paragraph has been confirmed, however.

There's also a suggestion that the ever-busy Ridley Scott may yet direct the film after all. It had been reported that he was just going to produce this one, »

Prometheus 2 to Begin Filming in January

3 August 2015 10:38 PM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Even though director Ridley Scott has been promising to make a "Prometheus" sequel, it seems that he's been focused on a bunch of other projects. But now comes word that "Prometheus 2" is officially moving forward. The plan was to release the movie on March 4th, 2016, which would be impossible now. The new plan has become to begin shooting in January and push the release date, likely to 2017. Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace will reprise their roles. The story will have the two characters travel to the Engineers' planet and meet god, who is not a kind being. »

Ridley Scott Will Reportedly Direct 'Prometheus 2' in Early 2016

3 August 2015 4:11 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Ridley Scott delivered Prometheus back in 2012. The film landed to a mixture of emotions, but no matter what you say it certainly sparked conversation and a modest showing at the box office, though far from blockbuster numbers. Since then we've wondered when the sequel might arrive as Scott seemed interested to return to that world and never shied from answering questions and neither did the cast. Now a new piece from Total Film (via Scified), discussing Scott's upcoming sci-fi feature The Martian (10/2) suggests Prometheus 2 will be his next feature, with production expected to begin in January 2016. "I've got back into the sci-fi thing, I kind of adore it," Scott told the magazine and while it may seem unlikely Fox would move forward with both Scott's Prometheus 2 and the anticipated Alien feature from Neill Blomkamp, which reportedly had to be changed a bit as Scott felt it "was bumping Prometheus 2 a little bit, »

According to a report in Total Film (via SciFied), cameras are set to roll on the follow-up to 2012’s Prometheus next year, with director Ridley Scott gearing up to start production on Prometheus 2 in January.

Plot details for the sequel are being kept tightly under wraps, although we do know that Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender will be reprising their roles as Elizabeth Shaw and the android David, while Jack Paglen and Michael Green have penned the script.

Ever since Prometheus hit the big screen in 2012, despite a certain amount of disappointment with director Ridley Scott‘s return to sci-fi, there has been desire by many to see where Prometheus 2 would take the story.

'Prometheus 2' Starts Shooting in January 2016

3 August 2015 1:10 PM, PDT | 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, »

Prometheus 2 Is Definitely Happening, Find Out When

3 August 2015 10:44 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Back in 2012, there was a great deal of hype building up to the release of Prometheus, director Ridley Scott.s return to the Alien universe he first visited in 1979. The result disappointed many fans (I dig it, but the film is admittedly very flawed), and the potential for a sequel has been a will-they-won.t-they proposition ever since. Scott has been talking about Prometheus 2 for some time, but now we know when it will start production. In the latest print edition of Total Film (via The Playlist), a profile of Scott reveals the interesting little tidbit that Prometheus 2 will begin filming in January of 2016. This will follow hot on the heels of The Martian, Scott.s Mars-set survival drama that releases this October. Talking to the magazine, Scott said: I.ve got back into the sci-fi thing, I kind of adore it. It.s good that he.s »

Maybe Ridley Scott is Ready to Jump Back to 'Prometheus 2' After All

3 August 2015 10:11 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Now this might be interesting. In the latest issue of Total Film, the magazine has a profile on Ridley Scott for his upcoming space adventure The Martian. It's the latest sci-fi movie from Scott since Prometheus and he seems to have found his genre again. The director told the zine that he kind of "adores" science fiction again, which is an interesting full circle considering for years we touted his quote about how sci-fi films were as dead as westerns. Then he came along and made Prometheus, and everyone wanted him to stay away from sci-fi again. Now he's making The Martian, and it looks damn good, and I still want him to make more sci-fi. Because even though Prometheus didn't have a great script, it was still very invigorating for the genre. We've been reporting on rumors and rumblings of the Prometheus sequel for a while. Then when Neill Blomkamp »

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 »
