Green Lantern's Michael Green Re-Writing Prometheus Sequel
And Ridley Scott May start work this year…

Prometheus

Though right now the majority of his filmmaking brain is focused on pushing Biblical epic Exodus through post-production, Ridley Scott has at least a few synapses firing in the direction of future projects. Among them is the Prometheus follow-up, which has just scored a new writer in the shape of Green Lantern's Michael Green.

Scott and the scribe have form together: Green has also been working on the Blade Runner follow-up, so it makes sense for him to segue over to one of Scott's other big sci-fi ideas. He takes over from Transcendence's Jack Paglen, who wrote the original draft.

Few details have emerged on the focus for the new movie, though The Wrap has ferretted out that it aims to up the terror, tighten the links to the familiar xenomorph and potentially feature multiple Michael Fassbenders (Fassbendi?) for those who like that sort of thing. And we know you're out there.

The new hire adds fuel to speculation that the untitled Scott project 20th Century Fox recently targeted for March 4, 2016 could well be the new Prometheus outing, though that will depend on everyone agreeing with the new script draft in time for the director to get to work.

NNNOOOOOOO!!!!!
As if this franchise couldn't sink any lower. Green lantern was as bad as DareDevil. Prometheus was the biggest let down in Sci Fi history. Such a terrible movie that insulted all intelligence with its prepostuous ideas and idiotic characters... not to mention a plot holier than the bible. Space Jesus hahahahaha! This is destined to fail. Never thought I'd see the day Ridley Scott went all George Lucas on us! Stay away from Blade Runner for the love of god! More

agree
I agree with the above comments. Only 4 Alien movies in the last 35 years. If it was up to me there would be more Alien than Bond movies. Sorry 007. Oh and I quite liked Promethous. More

Why bother?
I'd rather see a concluding chapter to Alien with Ripley taking on Weyland with an army of Xeno's! More
