The writer of next year's Transcendence has been hired to pen a script to Prometheus 2...

20th Century Fox is now pushing ahead with the mooted sequel to last year's Alien prequel of sorts, Prometheus. Prometheus 2 is expected to see Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace returning, and Ridley Scott will at least be producing. It's not definite at this stage that he'll be back in the director's chair, though.

What we do know is that Fox is closing in on a screenwriter to pen Prometheus 2. Variety reports that Jack Palgen, who's written Wally Pfister's upcoming directorlal debut Transcendence, is to write the script. We don't know where the narrative will go, short of the fact that Ridley Scott had suggested in previous interviews that this was the film that leads more directly to the first Alien film.

We'll keep you posted as we hear more.
