Alien: Covenant (Prometheus 2) (D: Scott) S: Fassbender

apparently this was announced and Fassbender and Rapace are said to be attached yet again.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2316204/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_2

http://www.prometheus2-movie.com/news/1452

20th Century Fox have remained very quiet about their upcoming sequel to Prometheus, which is rumored to be titled Paradise. Ridley Scott is said to return as the director, and we haven't heard of Jack Paglen leaving the project, so as far as we know he's still writing or wrote the script. We also heard from both Ridley Scott and Michael Fassbender in October and again in November, reassuring fans that Prometheus 2 was still well on its way.

But since then we haven't heard very much. With Dark Horse's upcoming AvP and Prometheus comics, we see the Universe Ridley created, expanded, and has been said to help tie into the Prometheus sequel. But still, no word on the movie, until today.

On our forums, one of our members, Kangy posted up a link to CineWorld where they've posted a supposed release date, November 27th, 2015, for Prometheus 2 and have the sequel titled as Paradise! Now, since we haven't heard any official word about Prometheus 2 for over 2 months, I'm quite skeptical and we urge our readers to take this news with a table spoon of salt until we get some official word back about the subject. Here's the "plot synopsis" CineWorld has on their page for Prometheus 2:

Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace star in a sequel to Ridley Scott's mind-blowing return to sci-fi. Survivors Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and decapitated android David (Michael Fassbender) continue their mission to discover why the alien Engineers want to destroy mankind. This follow-up is scripted by Jack Paglen, who also wrote the upcoming Johnny Depp sci-fi film 'Transcendence'. It's not yet known whether Ridley Scott will return to the director's chair.

Now, some can argue that this plot synopsis is pure speculation since they're unsure whether Scott will be returning to the Director's chair, but for the sake of journalism, I felt the need to share it anyways.

Now, I have reached out to CineWorld and requested clarification on the information that they've posted. If and when they respond, I'll be sure to update this article.

If Prometheus 2 is coming out on November 27th, 2015 then that just made next year officially the BIGGEST year in history for Science Fiction movies ever. It also means we could expect to see some production updates surface within months... But it's possible that this date could be a placeholder.

For more news on Prometheus 2 and this news in particular, keep an eye on Prometheus2-Movie.com!

UPDATE (01/17/2014): I have just received an email back from CineWorld after inquiring about their Prometheus 2 / Paradise release date of November 27th, 2015 which they posted on the site. I asked if this was a placeholder date or if it was in fact the legitimate release date for the Prometheus sequel and this is what they said:

"The release dates that are posted online are correct at the time that they are published, however, they are subject to changes, of course."

So, as far as we know, Prometheus 2 is set for a November 27th, 2015 release date!

I didn't hate the first one like so many people seemed to. Not a perfect film but I enjoyed it and will see the sequel.

Isn't Scott still hard at work in post on his Exodus movie? Will that even be enough time to get that done, then go right to Prometheus 2

Even if say that finishes post in Oct, that only gives him a year to do Prometheus 2. as Scott is very hands on in post

Meanwhile, on the HBO/Cinemax channels, the first movie comes on every.....Single.....Day.

Somebody's been getting massive royalty checks on that one!

It's not a masterpiece but I really enjoy Prometheus and seeing a sequel with Shaw and David traversing the galaxy is definitely a welcomed idea.

I was definitely disappointed in the first film, but interested enough to see how they right the ship in the sequel.

I love the potential of the first but hated the execution. If the sequel lives up to the unfulfilled potential of the first movie, I'll give it a shot.

Much like AVATAR 2, this is a film I would see - but if it never happened, I wouldn't be upset.

After Alien & Aliens there are no more films.

Alien 3, Alien Resurrection, Alien vs. Predator, Alien vs. Predator Requiem & Prometheus were all just bad dreams.

Other than the Avatar part which I would not see I agree with this. I'm not asking for part 2 but I would certainly see part 2. I liked the first movie well enough.

Re: Prometheus 2 (2015, Scott) S: Fassbender, Rapace

The first film is such a horribly written mess, yet I cannot deny I love the concepts and ideas it suggests. And dat production design. I'd certainly watch a sequel, but I think we need Scott at the helm to ensure a certain level of quality.

Yes, we definitely need Scott to maintain that pretty but idiotic quality that the first one had.

Yeah if Scott didn't direct Prometheus it could have been a total mess.

James Cameron should direct this.

Re: Prometheus 2 (2015, Scott) S: Fassbender, Rapace

I'm in, but I doubt they'll make that release date. I also don't think that November 27th is a plausible date, as it is Black Friday. More like they will release it the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, which is also a dumb idea as people want more family friendly stuff.

Clearly the Ridley Scott that directed the first one was a Replicant.
