It’s not really a surprise that a sequel to Prometheus is in pre-production given that Prometheus was intended as the first installment of a trilogy. Still, it’s nice to see that the story will continue. Ridley Scott will be returning as director with the script being penned by Jack Paglen. Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender are expected to reprise their roles.
While I’ve seen and heard a lot of negative comments about the film, I thoroughly enjoyed it and am looking forward to what’s coming next. Most complaints I’ve heard were centered on all the loose ends and unanswered questions that Prometheus left viewers with; I didn’t really understand the validity of these complaints since Prometheus wasn’t intended as a one-off. Hopefully unsatisfied viewers will find what they’re looking for with the upcoming sequel.
