Ridley Scott has just dropped a pretty big bombshell in an interview with HeyUGuys while doing The Martian pressrounds. Scott has revealed the title of the upcoming Prometheus sequel. It won’t be called Prometheus 2 – the movie is now called “Alien: Paradise Lost”! It’s a very surprising move having Alien back in the title considering Prometheus was supposed to be a standalone franchise. And how does this influence Neill Blomkamp’s Alien sequel?
Scott also mentions a poem in the interview – he’s referring to the Paradise Lost poem from 17th century poet John Milton which deals with the Fall of Man, and the temptations of Adam and Eve. Alien: Paradise Lost is still due to start filming in February 2016 and the story is rumoured to have Shaw and David travelling to the Engineer’s homeworld.
