movies Prometheus 2 Gets Itself a Writer

8 posts in this topic

Ridley Scott's Prometheus was released last year on June 8 and 20th Century Fox and Scott Free Productions are already moving forward with the currently Untitled Prometheus Sequel--which may as well be called "Prometheus 2" until something better comes along--as they've hired Trancendence Jack Paglen to write the screenplay, according to The Wrap.

As some of you may already know, Trancendence is the directorial debut by Christopher Nolan's Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister, a sci-fi film starring Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara and Morgan Freeman, so it's quite an impressive follow-up for the relative newcomer Paglen.

Although Paglen has been rumored for the gig for some time, Ridley Scott has agreed to his take on the direction for the sequel and negotiations are underway according to the story on The Wrap.

While the original Prometheus was meant as a prequel of sorts to Ridley Scott's sci-fi classic Alien, the sequel would probably follow-up from the events in Prometheus and branch away from the Alien connections.

Prometheus grossed $403 million worldwide based on a production budget of $130 million and right now, it looks like Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender will reprise their roles as Dr. Elizabeth Shan and the android David in Prometheus 2

I didn't think they'd go forward with a sequel so this is good news. I hope it bridges the gap between this story and the first Alien movie.

If they continue with the same storyline Damon Lindelof had come up with, it won't. During all of the pressings, he continually stated that this is not a prequel to Alien and any sequel done would drive a further wedge between those two stories.

The way I heard it described is, same universe, different timeline.

All they had to do was make the Engineer get away from the Prometheus Head-on Crash... then show the Chestburster bursting out of the Engineer. /End Scene. Now since that didn't happen, I think there is a chance that one of the one of the many Derelicts on the Engineer home world that makes it to LV-426.
