Scified wrote:Ridley Scott's Prometheus Sequel Coming March 4th, 2016?
According to a fresh report by THR, 'an unnamed Ridley Scott film is set for March 4, 2016', in addition to a number of other titles 20th Century Fox plans to put out over the next 2 years.
Though no official word is confirming that this is in fact the release date for Prometheus 2, many outlets have begun to speculate the fact - and we're one of them! Despite recently being told by CineWorld that Fox planned to release Prometheus 2 on November 27th, 2015, this new mention of a March, 2016 release date seems more likely.
Though Fox and Scott have both remained tight lipped about the highly anticipated sequel to 2012's sci-fi thriller, they have been quite vocal in announcing that they had hired a writer, Jack Paglen and that the project was still alive and well. Back in October of 2013, Ridley Scott even confirmed that writing for Prometheus 2 had wrapped up and that they were 'ready to go'. In November, the following month we also heard from Prometheus / Prometheus 2 actor, Michael Fassbender, that the project was on its way, but assured us that Fox and company were taking their time to come up with a solid story. With such a polarized reaction from movie goers back in 2012 when Prometheus hit theaters, it's no surprise that they're taking their time.
Whether or not March 4th, 2016 is the projected release date for Prometheus 2, it is exciting to know that the project is still alive and will probably be released within the next 2 years. With 2015's film lineup already jam packed with sci-fi blockbusters, it would make a lot of sense for Fox to hold off on releasing Prometheus 2 for the following year.
Whatever the release date I really hope they finish this prequel as this film has got me into the Alien series.
