A sequel to the 2012 hit Prometheus.
Back in March 2014, 20th Century Fox set a March 4, 2016 release date for the highly-anticipated sci-fi sequel Prometheus 2, while bringing on Michael Green (Green Lantern) to write the screenplay. But soon after, the sequel got delayed. We haven't heard much about the production since then. Director Ridley Scott has revealed to Total Film magazine that he is scheduled to start shooting Prometheus 2 in January 2016. 20th Century Fox has not issued a new release date quite yet, but the studio announced last year that Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children has taken over the March 4, 2016 release date.
The director wouldn't divulge any plot details for Prometheus 2, but Ridley Scott did add that he is interested in making sci-fi movies again, stating, "I've got back into the sci-fi thing, I kind of adore it." The filmmaker's last movie, the Biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings, only took in $65 million domestically, but earned $268 million worldwide from a $140 million production budget. His next film, which is firmly rooted in the sci-fi genre is The Martian, which hits theaters this October. It follows Matt Damon as an astronaut stranded on Mars.Read More
While it hasn't been officially confirmed by 20th Century Fox, it is believed that Ridley Scott will return to direct Prometheus 2 with Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender returning to star. In previous interviews, the director has stated that the sequel will feature a return to the homeworld of the sinister Engineers of both the alien species and humanity. The movie is currently scheduled for release on March 4, 2016, though it isn't known when filming will begin. If that date is to stay in place, it should be soon. Alien 5 is eyeing a 2017 release, with Aliens stars Sigourney Weaver and Michael Biehn expected to return as Ripley and Hicks. Fox has not yet given the sequel a confirmed release date. But it sounds like Ridley Scott and Neill Blomkamp will be working together to make their movies tie into each other.

While it certainly would be controversial to feature God or the Devil as villains in Prometheus 2, since the script is still being worked on, it remains to be seen what large threat Elizabeth and Michael will face in this sci-fi sequel. Our report from last month also indicated that both Prometheus 2 and Ridley Scott's Untitled Blade Runner Project are both in pre-production, but we reported in August that Prometheus 2 may be postponed in favor of Untitled Blade Runner Project. Regardless of which comes first, they will both come after The Martian, starring Matt Damon, which is gearing up to start production this fall.
