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. But where does that leave Assassin’s Creed, the video game adaptation that already has an August 7, 2015 release date? Read More »

Ridley Scott‘s last two movies, Prometheus and The Counselor, haven’t exactly supported his legendary status. The good news is, once you reach that status, it never goes away. So the director behind some of the best sci-fi and action films of all time continues to look ahead. His next movie will be the Biblical epic Exodus and, after that… we don’t know what he’ll make. Two definite options are the rumored sequels to Prometheus and Blade Runner. The director recently confirmed both films are still being written. Or maybe one of them is written. It’s hard to tell. Read his update about those, and the long in-development The Forever War, below. Read More »

Briefly: Do you want to see Prometheus 2? Personally, that’s a difficult question to answer. The ending of last year’s Ridley Scott film (warning: spoilers ahead) didn’t leave me hungry for more, but there’s still a framework there in which a good story could be told. Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender would likely feature in a film that explores how Rapace’s character and the remains of Fassbender’s android go off in search of further truth about the alien Engineers. And there’s that xenomorph appearance at the end of Prometheus (pictured below) which must factor in somehow.
Now we’re a step closer to seeing what happens next. The Wrap reports that Jack Paglen, who wrote Wally Pfister’s directorial debut Transcendence, is Fox and Scott’s choice to script. The site says the producer/director has signed off on Paglen’s story for the sequel, and that a deal is imminent. Since we know little about the Transcendence script, there’s little way of knowing whether or not Paglen is a good choice for this sequel. Read More »
