August 7, 2012Jackie R.
As we predicted in our previous post, in which our insider had revealed us the existence of Prometheus 2 and the release date of 2014, it has now been confirmed officially that the film is under development and will be ready sometime during 2014 or 2015 (as predicted).
Quote from HollywoodReporter.com:
The studio’s big summer bet was Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, June’s sort-of Alien prequel. The $130 million-budgeted film has grossed a solid but not spectacular $303 million globally, putting it right on the franchise bubble. (It should top out north of $360 million.) Fox confirms to THR 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. “Ridley is incredibly excited about the movie, but we have to get it right. We can’t rush it,” says Fox president of production Emma Watts, who also has overseen the successful reboots of the X-Men and Planet of the Apes franchises. A Prometheus sequel would be released in 2014 or 2015.
