Ridley Scott’s Next Movie Is Prometheus 2, Aliens Delayed

With 100% less rolling spaceship deaths... we hope.

In an interview with Empire, Ridley Scott confirmed that the next movie he’s working on after The Martian is released would be Prometheus 2. Sorry, xenomorph fans. You’re going to have to wait in stasis just a little bit longer. Michael Fassbender’s head has got some ‘splorin to do.

When asked about The Martian‘s notably quick wrap date–it was moved up twice, according to AV Club–Scott said, “I was already on to my next movie! I was starting to look for locations for my next movie, which is Prometheus 2.”

This doesn’t completely eliminate the possibility of a new Alien movie. In fact, Neil Blomkamp is still set to direct, and Scott is still set to produce. But Scott insisting to work on Prometheus 2 first ends up delaying the whole thing. And thus, the wait begins.

Will you be checking out Prometheus 2?
