It appears that Noomi Rapace will be heading back to outer space…
20th Century Fox has announced that Ridley Scott’s science fiction thriller Prometheus, which stars the 32-year-old half-Spanish actress, will be getting a sequel.
The studio confirms that the follow-up to the groundbreaking mythology film is expected to be released sometime in 2014 or 2015, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
It’s believed that the director Scott and 20th Century Fox are actively pushing ahead with the untitled Prometheus sequel and have even sealed deals with Rapace, who will appear in Dead Man Down next April, as well as Michael Fassbender to return to the ensemble cast.
But the follow-up film will need to find a new writer since Damon Lindelof will not come back to provide the script.
“Ridley is incredibly excited about the movie, but we have to get it right. We can’t rush it,” Emma Watts, Fox president of production, says of the sequel to the $130 million-costing sci-fi flick, which has grossed a solid $303 million internationally since its release on June 8.
