It’s official, FOX is pursuing a sequel to Prometheus and Ridley Scott will still be involved, no handing the franchise off to others who would likely only screw things up this time. Also signed on for a sequel is Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender, which is unsurprising seeing as they were the only two – SPOILER – still alive come the end, and it’s very likely they were contracted for a sequel when they agreed to do the first film. Plus, everything about that ending screamed sequel, what with Liz Shaw and the head of David off on some foolish crusade to find the Engineers and destroy them, or something.
Not coming back however is Damon Lindelof. Word is his exclusion is not a reflection of his work on Prometheus‘ script but rather he’ll just be unavailable to work on a sequel. Though, some are suspecting he’s been ousted because of the criticism Prometheus‘ at times confusing as fuck story received, but I’d like to believe FOX and Scott would have worked with him again given the opportunity.
Anyway, as reported by THR we can expect to see a sequel either in 2014 or 2015 which I think sounds awfully soon. What do you think? What do you expect a Prometheus sequel explore?
