Transcendence screenwriter Jack Paglen is currently in negotiations to pen Prometheus 2.

Back in February, actress Noomi Rapace revealed that the sequel was moving forward with an unidentified scribe, following a report from December that Prometheus writer Damon Lindelof will not be involved with the follow-up to 2012's Prometheus.

Jack Paglen is rumored to have been involved for a number of weeks, and now director Ridley Scott has signed off on his take. Naturally, no story details have been revealed at this time.

Prometheus stars Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender are believed to be returning, though no official casting has been confirmed. No production schedule has been announced for Prometheus 2.

Prometheus earned over $403 million worldwide from a $130 million budget during its theatrical run last summer.
