In typical no-brainer style the news that a sequel to this Summer's long-awaited Ridley Scott sci-fi epic 'Prometheus' is now officially in the pipeline comes surely as no surprise. With Scott himself showing interest in returning as director a follow-up to help even further closely tie the 'Alien'-universe together looks like a definite shoe-in. The Hollywood Reporter have bought news that "Scott and the studio actively are pushing ahead with a follow-up (stars Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace are signed) and are talking to new writers because Prometheus co-scribe Damon Lindelof might not be available." Charlize Theron ('Snow White and the Huntsman'), Idris Elba ('The Losers'), Sean Harris ('Creep'), Rafe Spall ('Shaun of the Dead') and Logan Marshall-Green ('Devil') who all starred in the first feature won't be back for obvious reasons. The sequel is set for a possible 2014 or 2015 arrival.
"In the distant future two superpowers control Earth and fight each other for all the solar system's natural resources. When one side dispatches a team to a distant planet to terraform it for human colonization, the team members discover an indigenous race of bio-mechanoid killers."
