Personally, I thought that a Prometheus sequel was planned, and executed, 33 years ago with a little film called Alien. But the ending to Prometheus clearly paved the way for a second film, and 20th Century Fox is now moving forward on its plans.
Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender are already contracted for the Prometheus 2, though the film is seeking a new writer, as Damon Lindelof may not be available.
With some fans expressing disappointment in the myriad of unanswered questions posed by Prometheus (check out our Prometheus quotes page for some examples), plans of a sequel may either delight or enrage. Will all (or at least one of) the loose ends be tied up? Or will there simply be more unexplained developments piled onto an already convoluted storyline?
Prometheus certainly looked beautiful and presented some fascinating ideas. And the two best performances were given by Rapace and Fassbender, so the sequel has some great potential. The film is being planned for release some time in 2014 or 2015. Check back with Movie Fanatic for more updates as they happen.
