"Prometheus 2" Gets Scribe, Release Date

"From darkhorizons, Green Lantern" scribe and "Kings" creator Michael Green has signed on to rewrite the script by Jack Paglen ("Transcendence") for the "Prometheus" sequel at 20th Century Fox.
Several sources claim that this film is the "mystery Ridley Scott project" which 20th Century Fox scheduled for March 4th 2016 last week.
The first "Prometheus," originally penned by Jon Spaihts and heavily re-written by "Lost" creator Damon Lindelof, was a sort-of prequel to Scott's 1979 "Alien" and left many unanswered questions.
This follow-up is said to have a "more terrifying tone", will include multiple versions of the android David (Michael Fassbender), and will be more akin to "Alien" than the grander sci-fi of the first "Prometheus". It's not known if the rumored title of "Paradise" will be used, but "Prometheus 2" is certain to be changed.
This marks the second script for Scott that Green is polishing, the scribe is currently polishing the script for Scott's untitled "Blade Runner" film. However, the "Prometheus" follow-up is expected to go first, as early as later this year in fact once Scott wraps "Exodus".

Wow, they actually went and got the Green Lantern guy. So we have nothing to worry about.

Siiiigh. I know. There were a lot of great moments in Prometheus but also a lot of stupid moments (e.g. astronauts getting high, touching space creatures, having sex, an overall lack of quarantining, etc). Hiring the Green Lantern guy makes me pessimistic about the chances of this sequel being any good.
