The 2012 film “Prometheus” truly shook the foundation of every sci-fi enthusiast, especially those who are die-hard fans of the Alien franchise.

The movie left us with more questions than answers, with one of them being “When is the next one coming out?”

As it happens, legendary director Ridley Scott has an answer to that.

While talking to Empire about “The Martian,” which is set for an October release date, the 77-year-old director said that he’s already working on a “Prometheus” sequel.

Scott and Matt Damon, the star of “The Martian,” were talking about the director’s fast pace of picking up and finishing projects, when Ridley said: “I was already on to my next movie! I was starting to look for locations for my next movie, which is Prometheus 2.

It’s not strange for Ridley Scott to take up a bunch of projects at once. The upcoming one with Matt Damon is supposed to be a real hit, and we’re sure his work on “Prometheus 2” means that the long-awaited sequel will hit the theaters much sooner than we think. Here’s hoping!
