The Hollywood Reporter confirmed yesterday that 20th Century Fox has given the go-ahead for a Prometheus sequel.  According to THR, Fox’s president of production, Emma Watts, stated that a sequel is on track for 2014 or 2015.

Considering the many questions left unanswered, the new direction/mythology created by Ridley Scott and writers Jon Spaihts and Damon Lindelof…and the fact that two of the main characters, Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) & David (Michael Fassbender) survived and escaped at the end of Prometheus, it was almost inevitable that die-hard fans, at least, would be waiting for this news.

I’ll admit it, it wasn’t as “reach out and grab you” a movie as I was anticipating, but there was enough new story (and a few “Huh?” and “What the hell was that?” moments) to make me want to see more.

Scott has said that a sequel could answer some of the many questions that Prometheus brought up and bridge the time gap between Prometheus and Alien.

I wonder if they’ll take the same approach in using viral marketing this time around to build up the buzz.  Maybe with this announcement, they’ve already started!  Are fans going to be as excited this time around?   Are you?
