According to Variety, THR and the Prometheus’ Facebook page, Jack Paglen is currently in talks with 20th Century Fox to write the script for the sequel to Prometheus.

Fox and Ridley Scott are getting closer to returning to space as Jack Paglen (“Transcendence”)  is in talks to write the follow-up to last year’s sci-fi blockbuster, “Prometheus.” (…)  He is repped by ICM Partners and Madhouse Entertainment.

Previous reports stated that Fox was having some trouble finding a way to continue the story of Elizabeth Shaw and were taking pitches from any writers. Thanks to Aspie for the news.

    This also has had its original writer jump ship, rumors now circulating that Scott won't be returning to direct, no greenlight, and their new hired screenwriter has only one yet-to-be-released credit to his name and will probably just be the first of many writers in a revolving door. :P

    It is undoubtedly having it's developmental difficulties at this point, a few of which are reminiscent of a developmental hell birth, I'm just saying I'm less worried because of the positive feedback currently coming back from Fox and the financial success of the first one.

    And Lindelof leaving doesn't bother me a bit :P

    It bothers me because it feels like his whole plan to hijack the Alien Prequel and turn it into his grand Prometheus trilogy and answer all of the questions he raised in the first film in the sequel but no he just didn't care.

    How do you figure that?

    Despite not having a greenlight, it's still  generating a ton of interest from Fox. Which wouldn't be extraordinary if the first one didn't make $400 million worldwide and 3 times it's budget. Still being a slight financial disappointment, it just looks like Fox is trying to be more cautious. There's no production conflicts or cast fallouts. Now that a writer has been hired, it just works to be additional fuel for the project.

    Unlike my Meg film, which has hired several writers, producers, directors, etc. But everything keeps failing because there's no successful contemporaries to justify it's budget. And it hasn't received any verbal commitment from a movie studio, which I believe Fox has given Prometheus 2 or whatever it's called several times.
