In een interview vertelde Ridley Scott dat de opnames van Prometheus 2 in februari van start gaan. De film bevindt zich momenteel in pre-productie.
“Fassbender will do this one with me, and it’s meant to start production in February. I’m in prep, now. I’ll either shoot in Aussie, or here.”
Het plot van de film is nog niet bekend. Michael Green werkt aan het scenario en de geruchten gaan dat we weer Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) en David (Fassbender) zullen volgen, tijdens hun reis naar de scheppers van de mensheid. In elk geval moet de film een filosofische insteek krijgen:
“You can either say, leave the first film alone and jump ahead, but you can’t because it ends on too specific a plot sentence as she says, I want to go where they came from, I don’t want to go back to where I came from. I thought the subtext of that film was a bit florid and grandiose, but it asks a good question: who created us? I don’t think we are here by accident. I find it otherwise hard to believe you and I are sitting here at this table, because the molecular miracles that would have had to occur were in the trillions, since the first sign of human life that crawled out of the mud with four fingers, would bloody well be impossible, unless there was some guidance system. Also, you have the sun approximately the same distance from earth as it is from maybe millions of planets and planetoids that are almost identical distance and therefore enjoy the value of sunlight on their soil. Are you telling me there are no other planets with human life? I simply don’t believe it.”
