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.”
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:
