Take this with a grain of salt. This site claims, Nimrod Antal allegedly spoke with Ridley Scott about the direction PROMETHEUS 2 will head in. He claims Ridley wasn't too happy with the story of Prometheus, but accepted the sequel nonetheless. However, P2 will not head to the Engineers planet as expected, but instead involve human characters, on Earth, responding to Shaw and David sending signals on board the Juggernaut/Derelict to Earth, with Weyland's team, attempting to destroy that ship before it reaches Earth... Threatening us with the Black-Goo, perhps? Presumably to 'evolve' us? The horror of which, no doubt, will be what the new, military, 'female lead' has to endure, after she (allegedly) takes over when Shaw dies, midway through the film. So will we will get to experience those transformations first hand on their mission, as an audience? That would likely be more 'ALIEN-ey' as previous reported... Antal also says it will be a third film that finally reveals the Engineers homeworld. Could this female, military lead be the part Cate Blanchett is also ALLEGEDLY in talks to take on?
WORKING TITLE - PROMETHEUS: HELL ON EARTH
Again,... grain of salt.
This is rumor control. There are NO FACTS. http://moviepilot.com/posts/2014/06/06/prometheus-2-paradise-or-the-end-of-mankind-1474683
If this should be true, I think this sounds in line with what an Alien/Prometheus film should be, mostly because I think in order for them to work, something must go wrong on these missions that retains the truth from reaching Earth while also keeping things vague regarding the companies intentions during the Alien cycle of films. This type of story sounds like it provides an opportunity to return to the body horror and action aspects, hopefully adding some new things to the creatures, while also developing some Company characters and provoking the whole 'Is the Company more interested in saving Earth from this threat or retaining patents and keeping the competition from getting a leg up?' Which is something, I think, Ridley's films are very interested in, and we should see more of, because its one of the most relevant aspects of the Alien series.
