Last year, many thought that Ridley Scott’s Prometheus follow-up would land in March 2016, but the director decided to tackle The Martain, an adaptation of Andy Weir best-selling sci-fi novel first.
After just one installment, Prometheus filmmaker Ridley Scott has apparently decided that sequels to that film would do better with the Alien franchise explicitly attached.
During an interview this week, Scott revealed that the forthcoming film previously known only as Prometheus 2 will in fact be titled Alien: Paradise Lost.
Watch the interview here:
The Prometheus sequel will pick up where the last movie left off, in that, Noomi Rapace’s Elizabeth Shaw and Michael Fassbender’s David the android will be headed to homeworld of the Engineers to have them answer a very important question: Why did they create humans and then try to eradicate us?
Alien: Paradise Lost is expected to begin production in January.
