Who would have ever thought that the first “Prometheus” would have been divisive as it was? On paper it seemed like a fantastic movie and then that first trailer just blew everyone away. However, the final product stirred up quite a debate on the internet and left more than one fan with a sour taste in their mouth.
Now there’s a chance to tackle the issues the original “Prometheus” might have suffered from. The Wrap has learned that a new writer is boarding the upcoming sequel. Micheal Green, who worked on the recent “Green Lantern” film and is writing Ridley Scott’s new “Blade Runner” flick, has been tapped to handle the writing duties on the upcoming sequel.
The Wrap has also learned a few details from an insider close to the project who says that the new film will be closer in tone to the “Alien” films and will be more of a terrifying experience. They’ve also learned that Micheal Fassbender might serve a bigger role in the film as there could be multiple Davids featured throughout. No word on what that means, but since David was an android it’s easy to see how there could be multiples of him.
“Prometheus 2″ is expected to start shooting this fall after Ridley finishes work on his upcoming Moses film “Exodus.”
