As if Prometheus didn't have enough poor, questionably-motivated decisions in its lengthy story, now Ridley Scott and 20th Century Fox have made official their plan to move forward on a sequel to the film.
[Note: If you have not seen Prometheus, you should probably stop reading now, okay?]
THR has heard the sequel confirmation straight from the studio's president of production, Emma Watts, who said, "We have to get it right ... we can't rush it," before revealing that "can't rush it" still means the proposed film will come out in two or three years. Surviving stars Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender are reportedly already signed to reprise their role, but with co-writer Damon Lindelof extremely busy as of late, it's not yet clear if he'll be offering his oft-convoluted touch to the script. Regardless, the septuagenerian director is said to be "incredibly excited about the movie," and already he and the studio are meeting with new writers to wheel the story forward and make sure it never dies--even if it does become a Girl & Her Duffel Bag Head buddy road comedy.
