20th Century Fox has revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that they are moving ahead with a sequel to Ridley Scott’s ‘Prometheus.’ Grossing over $300 million at the worldwide box office from a $130 million budget, the studio and Scott are said to be eyeing a 2014 or 2015 release for the ‘Prometheus’ sequel. Although it’s unclear whether or not the original films co-writer Damon Lindelof will be returning due to other commitments, both Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace are signed up to return as David and Elizabeth Shaw, respectively. “Ridley is incredibly excited about the movie, but we have to get it right. We can’t rush it,” says 20th Century Fox president of production Emma Watts, who also has overseen the successful reboots of the ‘X-Men’ and ‘Planet of the Apes’ franchises by turning over the reigns to innovative filmmakers.

‘Prometheus’ was released this June and starred Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, Sean Harris, Kate Dickie, Rafe Spall, Logan Marshall-Green, and Guy Pearce. It marked director Ridley Scott’s long-awaited return to science-fiction, a genre he helped define with ‘Alien’ and ‘Blade Runner.’ Scott is currently at work on his Cormac McCarthy-scripted thriller, ‘The Counselor,’ which has Michael Fassbender, Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz, Cameron Diaz, Dean Norris and John Leguizamo starring.
