Ridley Scott Announces Name of Prometheus Follow Up

Ridley Scott’s scifi-horror film PROMETHEUS was easily the most divisive film of 2012. This film divided fans right down the middle. Even with all its flaws, I loved PROMETHEUS and really enjoyed the many high concepts it explored. With that said, the second the film ended, I was eager and hopeful a follow up film would be made to further expand on what Ridley Scott started. Now we know for sure there will be a PROMETHEUS 2, and it sounds as though we’ll be getting more than just one sequel.

The title to the 2012 follow up will be ALIEN: PARADISE LOST. Here’s what Scott said in an interview with HeyUGuys:

“You know the poem?” the filmmaker asked, referring to John Milton’s famous work. “I’m sure you’ve never been through it, the poem’s a book, ‘Paradise Lost.’ It sounds intellectual, but there’s a similarity to it. That’s where it stops.”

Prometheus 3

Scott also goes on to say that he envisions a total of three sequels to PROMETHEUS, with the last tying into his 1979 classic ALIEN.

ALIEN: PARADISE LOST stars Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace and is expected to begin production early next year. Here’s the interview where Ridley Scott makes his announcement:

Stay Bloody!!!

    Prometheus 2: Ridley Scott Lost…? Alien -2: Lost Prometheus…? I hope they make it a bit of a tribute to the not so long ago passed on H.R. Giger!
