Ridley Scott’s upcoming Prometheus sequel, formerly known as Alien: Paradise Lost, will actually be called Alien: Covenant and it will be released in theaters on October 6, 2017, shifting from what originally was a May 2017 release.
In additon, 20th Century Fox has released an official plot synopsis, which reads as follows:
If this report is accurate, Prometheus 2 is going into production in the first quarter of 2016 (under Scott’s direction),
A month ago, District 9 director Neill Blomkamp posted some Alien sequel concept art, but said the extra-terrestrial reboot was likely abandoned. Obviously, he was wrong about it as the images have generated the most positive response from Fox.
Ridley Scott has become prolific filmmaker in his 70s and he doesn’t have a superhero or tween vampire movie under his belt. Instead Scott still has a remarkably hectic schedule in front of him.
The 76-year-old director is currently putting the finishing touches to Exodus: Gods and Monsters and after that he’s set to direct the sci-fi survival film The Martian, starring Matt Damon.
I’ll be honest, more than slightly disappointing Green Lantern writer Michael Green has been enlisted to rewrite the screenplay for the untitled Prometheus sequel.
Green – who was also hired to work on the follow-up to Blade Runner has been hired to rewrite the original script from Transcendence screenwriter Jack Paglen, tentatively-titled Prometheus 2
