John Connor [Celluloid 08.04.15] scifi

After leaving science fiction behind for most of his career, it seems Ridley Scott has caught a bug and won't let the genre go. And for fans of Prometheus, that's great news. In a recent interview with Total Film, Ridley Scott stated that production on the sequel could begin as early as January 2016.

“I’ve got back into the sci-fi thing, I kind of adore it,” said the 77 year-old director.

After Damon Lindelof stepped away from writing the sequel, Jake Paglen (Transcendence) was brought on board to pen, with a re-write coming in from Michael Green, who'd worked with Scott on the Blade Runner sequel.

Obvious questions arise about how and if the world of Prometheus intersects with Neill Blomkamp's upcoming Alien sequel. Luckily, the way Prometheus was designed to veer away from that franchise, it likely won't be held back by any such considerations.

Ridley Scott's The Martian hits this fall. The film is based on the novel by Andy Weir.
