20th Century Fox has confirmed they are in development on a sequel to Prometheus, according to THR, with director Ridley Scott and stars Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace set to return with more adventures that lead towards the events we saw in the first Alien movie.
Here’s what Fox production president Emma Watts had to say about the follow-up, “Ridley is incredibly excited about the movie, but we have to get it right. We can’t rush it.”
As they’re not rushing, Fox is looking at releasing the sequel in either 2014 or 2015, perhasp filling the gap left by the ever retreating release date of Avatar 2 & 3. The studio is currently in talks with new writers to draft the sequel as Damon Lindelof, who wrote the original, may not be available to work on the follow-up, due to his involvement with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and several other projects.
