Ridley Scott has recently commented on the status of the sequel to Prometheus. According to an interview with Empire Magazine:
“Prometheus 2 is written,” says Scott, but doesn’t indicate when it might start shooting. “I have already got the next two films ready to go. That will be 2014, 2015…”
“I thought I’d left science-fiction for too long, that I had better climb back in. Prometheus was a great experience for me. Chasing number two, we can start evolving the grand idea…”
A few weeks ago, the ALIEN director stated that Prometheus 2 “is being written right now” at a press conference (3:25) for his latest film, The Counselor.
