Ever since the release of Prometheus there’s been talk of a sequel, but actually getting it made has always seemed quite far off. However now Fox must feel things are moving in the right direction as several sources are saying is the Ridley Scott title that was given a March 4th, 2016 release date last week.
That info comes at the same time TheWrap reports that screenwriter Michael Green (Green Lantern) has signed up to rewrite the script for Prometheus 2. Green is taking over from Jack Paglen (Transcendence), who’s been working on the project since last June.
Prometheus 2 is said have a more terrifying and less enigmatic tone than 2012’s Prometheus. It’s also believed it will include multiple versions of the android David, played by Michael Fassbender.
While no cast members have officially signed on, it’s believed both Fassbender and Noomi Rapace will return.
Green’s hiring suggests Ridley Scott thinks he’s been doing good work on the Untitled Blade Runner Project that’s in development – although Prometheus 2 will com first, as it’s believed it will shoot this autumn, once Scott has complete Exodus.
