Although he doesn't known when production may begin on that sequel, he hopes to have it in front of cameras by 2014.
"Prometheus 2 is written. I have already got the next two films ready to go. That will be 2014, 2015..."
One of the other projects Ridley Scott is working on next is the biblical drama Exodus, which has Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, Aaron Paul, Sigourney Weaver and John Turturro attached to star. Here's what the director succinctly said when asked about its scope, saying that Christian Bale's Moses will "have to" part the Red Sea.
The other is a sci-fi project based on Joe Haldeman's book The Forever War.
"There is also this very well written piece, one of the last great science-fiction books called The Forever War [the bureaucracy and space battle masterpiece by Joe Haldeman] - we've finally got a very good draft of that for Fox. I thought I'd left science-fiction for too long, that I had better climb back in. Prometheus was a great experience for me. Chasing number two, we can start evolving the grand idea."
While it isn't one of the projects he intends to make in either 2014 or 2015, the filmmaker is still working on the Untitled Blade Runner Project
"Yeah, we're working on [Blade Runner 2] right now - that will happen sooner or later."
