A new writer has been found for the planned Prometheus sequel, to be directed by Ridley Scott.
The Alien helmer will work from a script by veteran writer Peter Barsocchini, reveal The Hollywood Reporter. Fox was said to have been struggling to find a writer recently.
British director Scott has been tight-lipped about his second film, with the remake shrouded in secrecy.
Barsocchini has a number of scripts in development. He previously penned several films for Disney and Buena Vista.
There's no word on when Prometheus 2 will now go into production.
