Plans are on their way to bring a sequel to Ridley Scott’s Prometheus to the big screen sometime in 2014 or 2015.
The Hollywood Reporter writes that Ridley Scott is “actively pushing forward” on a sequel to his prequel that fits into the Alien mythology and franchise.
Prometheus was one of the most anticipated films of 2012 and it jumped out of the gate fast with a $51 million opening. But the film has hardly been a runaway success. Just about out of theatres and hitting Blu-ray in the fall, Prometheus has gathered in $302 million worldwide – which isn’t too shabby had it not been for the $250 million price tag that came alone with the production.
Prometheus writer David Lindelof may not be available for the sequel so new writers are likely. But according to the report, Scott already has the framework as to where the story is headed in his cranium. Scott says he ““where it’s going. I know that to keep [David] alive is essential and to keep [Elizabeth] alive is essential and to go where they came from, not where I came from, is essential.”
We just hope Ridley can bring this together as fast as possible. After all, Sir Ridley is now 75 and he could be pushing 85 by the time he completes the two Prometheus sequels and Blade Runner 2 that he is now heaving involved in.
