March 25th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Looks like Prometheus 2 is on track and has the writer of, em, Green Lantern onboard…

According to the Wrap Michael Green has been hired by  20th Century Fox to rewrite the sequel which Ridley scott has lined up as his next project. The original script was written by transcendence scribe Jack Paglen. The rumour is that it is the untitled Scott project set for release in March 2016 and is set to film this fall after Scott finishes with the Moses movie Exodus.

According to The Wrap, Green’s script “aims to be much more “alien-y” and in line with the terrifying tone of past films in the franchise. Additionally, the sequel is expected to feature multiple ‘David’ androids, which means there will be more than one Michael Fassbender on screen at the same time, according to an individual familiar with the project.”

Green is also re-witing his own Blade Runner sequel script, also for Ridley Scott, he also worked on Smallville and Heroes and Warner’s have him working on The Flash script…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
