Ridley Scott has hinted that the sequel to his 2012 sci-fi film Prometheus starring Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace will start in January 2016.
Fassbender and Rapace are set to reprise their roles as David and Elizabeth Shaw respectively, while Ridely Scott will again sit behind the lens, reported
It has been years since the plan of untitled Prometheus sequel was announced, but only few updates about the movie have been revealed.
Scott, hinting, he would shoot the film in January 2016 said, "I've got back into the sci-fi thing, I kind of adore it."
Although fans were not really impressed with 2012's Prometheus, they seem to be interested to see how a sequel will perform and how the director improves and develops the story.
As the production will begin less than a year from now, it likely means that the team behind the movie must already have the script.
Scott, 77, and Walter Hill will produce the movie while the script is written by Michael Green.
The sci-fi movie is set to hit US theatres on March 3, 2016, a date that will likely be pushed.
