With surviving Prometheus members David (Michael
Fassbender) and Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) are
both locked in for a sequel, Damon Lindelof (who co-wrote
the script with newcomer Jon Spaihts) is not as certain
to return. Fox hopes to have the continuiing prequel
to Alien ready for 2015. Ridley Scott intends to carry
