With a release date of March 4, 2016 already in place, director Ridley Scott’s Prometheus sequel may be heading down under.
The Daily Mail today reports that Scott has been spotted in Australia scouting locations for his return to the science fiction universe that began with his Alien in 1979. Green Lantern scribe Michael Green recently joined the project, rewriting a draft by Transcendence’s Jack Paglen.
20th Century Fox has set a March 4, 2016 release date for a sequel to Prometheus.
The Wrap reports that Green Lantern scribe Michael Green, who has been working with Scott on the proposed Blade Runner sequel, will rewrite Prometheus 2 and that the script calls for multiple versions of David, the synthetic played by Michael Fassbender in the first film, which also starred Noomi Rapace, Guy Pearce, Idris Elba, Logan Marshall-Green and Charlize Theron.
Dark Horse Comics has released a new teaser for their upcoming relaunch of the Aliens, Predator, and AvP comics which will be joined by Prometheus in a four series “shared universe” that will debut next year. Check out the “odds of survival” after the jump!
What can we surmize from this teaser? None of these human shilouettes look all that familiar, so when the creators said the comics will deal with all-new characters we know they’re telling the truth. A few other things we can take a stab at, not all of these folks are military and they’re definitely not present day people. So will they all be taking place in the far future? Sound off with your guesses using our comment boards.
Reboot is a very popular term in entertainment these days. Whether it be films, television, or even comics, many companies are going back to the drawing board in an effort to get more people in on their stories. Dark Horse is the latest to try their hand at the reboot game, but they’re doing it with a set of characters and creators that is super exciting. Next year will see the relaunch of a line of comics based on the Aliens, Predators, AVP, and Prometheus franchises, and the catch? They’re all interconnected.
io9 dropped the first details on the new books, which will feature Aliens by Chris Roberson and Patric Reynolds, Predators by Joshua Williamson, Prometheus by Paul Tobin, and Aliens vs. Predator by Chris Sebela, hit the jump to find out more!
Both Bleeding Cool and The Hollywood Reporter are saying that Dark Horse Comics is going to be releasing a Prometheus-themed series. Similar to what Dark Horse has been doing with the Alien series, the company is going to create some spin-off story based on Ridley Scott’s 2012 sci-fi film.
Ridley Scott’s Prometheus was released last year on June 8 and 20th Century Fox and Scott Free Productions are already moving forward with the currently Untitled Prometheus Sequel – which may as well be called Prometheus 2 until something better comes along – as they’ve hired Trancendence Jack Paglen to write the screenplay, according to The Wrap.
As some of you may already know, Trancendence is the directorial debut by Christopher Nolan’s Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister, a sci-fi film starring Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara and Morgan Freeman, so it’s quite an impressive follow-up for the relative newcomer Paglen.
That divisive movie of 2012 that insists on permeating cinephile blogs – Prometheus – isn’t prepared to go away just yet.
No doubt you have your thoughts on Ridley Scott’s Alien prequel and no doubt your friends, family, and hell, family pet, have their own opinion on Prometheus, too. But what did Quentin Tarantino, king cinephile, himself think?
The Django Unchained director hit Craig Ferguson and expressed his opinion. Perhaps his thoughts will make you feel better about your own…or perhaps can simply stand steadfast by your own opinion and not give a crap about what Tarantino thinks. Regardless, head inside for more.
