Fox confirms that Ridley Scott and the studio actively are pushing ahead with a follow-up to this summer’s Alien prequel. Stars Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace are signed on, and one would expect that the plot would continue directly from the end of Prometheus in which…
The engineer is killed giving birth to the Deacon Alien (Pre-Xenomorph) and Shaw and David (last seen as talking severed head) are bound for the Engineers home planet seeking answers as to why they planned to destroy earth.

Thankfully they are looking to hire new writers because Prometheus co-scribe Damon Lindelof (Who also ruined LOST) might not be available. “Ridley is incredibly excited about the movie, but we have to get it right.

A Prometheus sequel would be released in 2014 or 2015.
