Prometheus 2 Shooting in Australia?

According to the Daily Mail, Sir Ridley Scott has arrived in Australia to scout for locations for the upcoming Prometheus 2:

“‘It’s the best kept secret at the moment, that Ridley is here to film the Prometheus sequel,’ an insider told the MailOnline. The source said he and several other well-placed professionals only became aware of the project when Scott touched ground at Sydney airport on Wednesday, with pre-production remaining tight-lipped. “

Thanks to Michael Scola for the e-mail.

    Don't know or care much for Martian, but it will be interesting to see how Scott's second foray into sci-fi in over 30 years turns out. Maybe it's like learning to ride a bike all over again; Prometheus was a face-first swan dive into the pavement without a helmet (geddit?), but maybe Martian will see him getting some of his balance back.

    I for one really want to see him get back on that bike.

    I'm also fearing the worse for the sequel as HR Giger will now NEVER grace the headlines again in another movie unless its a "shout out". And whose going to care about a "shout out"? NOBODY! That is unless the next movies will have a drastically impressive prop making department  out to envision HIS type of work. But that much I doubt. THEY DON'T HAVE THE BALLZ!!

    I must admit, I'm not as excited about Prometheus 2. I'm following the news, interested to hear what's happening with production, but I just can't shake the idea that the sequel will be any better the the first film.

    Yeah, but most of the more reputable news sources seem to be holding off for something more official.

    Quote from: IGN
    He chose to eventually film Blade Runner 2 in Australia because of the country's "vast farmland where there's no hedges or anything else in sight...where you can see for miles, but it's dirt."

     :laugh:

     :o I'm so pleased!!!!!! She's such an amazing figure, beautifully dynamic! And Riddles just doesn't meet up with a female to star in the famously female star driven Alienesque movie for no apparent reason.

    Australia's Daily Telegraph says it's for "The Martian".

    Nobody is really wanting a movie like that LoL we saw Mission to Mars and some other crap and that was enough for me...more then enough :)
    Its really boring and a money throw away.
    f**k the Martian thats my opinion.

    i like the mars idea ... since we see mars behind weylands hologram it would be cool to see some of p2 set on mars. theoretically it could also shorten the trip for any search parties if they left from mars instead of earth.  im excited to see some landscape shots from helicopters if the film starts with similar opening credits. my guess is australia wont be the main location for the film.

    Hrm... After seeing Last days of Mars and Mission to Mars... I can't really see The Martian as something interesting enough to grab your attention.   I bet Ridley Scott is  scratching his noggin with P2 so close in the schedule for filming.
    Are they planning to merge the two stories? That be interesting.

    Australian scenery is much more likely to stand in for Martian soil.

    Agreed, many areas in the interior (AKA "the Red Centre") have a distinctly reddish colored type of soil rarely seen in other deserts. If NASA ever wanted to fake a manned Martian landing Straya would be the place to do it.

    Even though Martian soil isn't really that red in reality - but you know public perception...

    I don't know. The mail aren't all that reliable and the Australian outback seems like it could provide a solid location for The Martian (The other Ridley Scott/ Fox sci-fi film) but I'll remain hopeful it's a Prometheus sequel. Fox are certainly keen to get it going.
