Ridley Scott has one of the best problems you can have in Hollywood. He’s got a number of projects in development that he desperately wants to make, and which financiers want to fund. The problem is, he’s just one man, and the second he commits to a project, others get moved back.
After releasing Prometheus in 2012, we already knew he was looking at making a sequel to that, as well as a sequel to Blade Runner. Neither project has happened yet, with the director instead making The Counselor, Exodus: Gods and Kings, and now The Martian. In a new interview, Scott makes it sound like either Prometheus 2 or Blade Runner 2 could be next, and he hints that the xenomorphs from the Alien franchise won’t play a part in the former.

Ridley Scott is busy. He’s got his Moses tale Exodus: Gods and Monsters opening in December and then will shoot The Martian with Matt Damon, with a November 2015 release already set for that novel adaptation.
But Scott also has been announced to direct sequels to two of his sci-fi series: Blade Runner and Prometheus. We’ve been under the impression that Prometheus 2 would hit in 2016, but we’re now wondering if that is even less likely than it once was. Why? Well, because the new Blade Runner film is nearly ready to go, and Scott sounds as if he wants to make it sooner rather than later. Read More »

One of our most exciting young directors is about to team up with one of our most exciting young actors. Michael Fassbender has just signed to star in The Light Between Oceans, directed by Derek Cianfrance. The film, an adaptation of a novel by M.L. Stedman, is about a lighthouse keeper who decides to secretly raise a young infant found in a shipwreck.
While that’s extremely intriguing on it’s own, here’s an even juicier morsel. Reports are Fassbender will shoot this film next, followed by Prometheus 2, which he recently said is happening.
