When the first trailer for Ridley Scott’s The Martian was released it jumped onto everyone’s “Must See” list. A short time later, 20th Century Fox moved the release date up from late-November to early October. This was a joy for impatient moviegoers everywhere, but a scheduling bump up could lead to problems and hassles for a filmmaker as they get less time to polish their movies and make it exactly how they want it. It is a good thing Scott was done with the movie two weeks after shooting then.
“I was already on to my next movie!” Scott told Empire Magazine. “I was starting to look for locations for my next movie, which is Prometheus 2.”
There you have it, for all of those wondering what his next film might be, Scott confirmed Prometheus 2 will be his next film. Filming for it is expected to commence in January of 2016.
Prometheus (2012) – Ridley Scott, director of “Alien” and “Blade Runner,” returns to the genre he helped define. With Prometheus, he creates a groundbreaking mythology, in which a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a thrilling journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they must fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.
