Hey, remember a couple months back when we used to post something about Prometheus pretty much every day? Those were good times. But now the movie’s out, the world’s moved on and there’s nothing more to post about! Or is there? That’s right, time to start the Prometheus 2 posts!
So, given what happens at the end of Prometheus, it seems likely a sequel was always planned, but yesterday it was made official. Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender have both re-signed, and the movie is set to come out in 2014, or possibly 2015. Interestingly Hollywood Blockbuster writing robot Damon Lindelof is not attached to the sequel, and reportedly Fox is looking for a new screenwriter to replace him. Good — Prometheus’ Achilles heel was definitely its rather scattered script.
Sigh. I know this is way too early, but I’m already starting to feel the hype for the further adventures of Noomi and her friend Michael Fassbender’s head.
