During a press panel for The Counselor, director Ridley Scott was asked about the current state of Prometheus 2 (Paradise), which has been in development hell since the departure of screenwriter Damon Lindelof.

Good news for fans of the quasi-Alien prequel (that?s me!), he confirms that the screenplay is still being written. Transcendence scribe Jack Paglen was hired back in June to figure out a way to continue the story of Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and the Engineers, which was left in a state of flux when the original one-shot was changed to make way for a trilogy.

As pereviously reported, Scott will produce again through his Scott Free banner though it?s unknown at this time if he will direct. Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender are also expected to return.

Of course there would be a sequel...  It's a prequel to the alien SERIES...  And it was left with a teaser of Dr Shaw going to "where they came from"... Of course people are gonna want (and presumably the production company is gonna want to capitalize on) to know what happened after Shaw gets to her destination.

I just hope it doesn't suck as much as the original. The original IMO was terrible.

I really enjoyed the first one. The story was all over the place, but Noomi and Fassbender were so perfectly cast. When you have characters that strong, you have to continue!

Even though I hated the first I think it's not beyond saving, and I agree with incendy, Noomi and Fassbender alone are enough of a reason to check it out. Let's just hope this time they include a story instead of sequences of things happening.

Noomi was good but Fassbender really stood out for me, I just hope she fixes him up so he isn't just a head in a bag  :rofl:

I agree. They are strong characters and this series is still savable.

To an Alien fan like me, this is the best piece of news since the first Prometheus was confirmed in 2010.

For some reason I'd rather be reading Prometheus as a graphic novel series.  Seems like the story line would be better in that format for some reason.
