Too early to tell if this is good or bad news, although presumably Ridley Scott was impressed with this guy's pitch. Here's hoping.

I'm *definitely* up for more Prometheus.

Last storyline was lousy. It can only get better after this… we hope as well.

I didn't think it was lousy at all. There a couple of really goofy/annoying characters in it, but that was my only problem with it.

If they keep spinning it further away from 'Alien' then that would perhaps be more interesting than having it connect directly too soon. I thought 'Prometheus' had issues stemming from the divergence from Spaihts' original script but it wasn't uninteresting I found.

Bring on more Prometheus.

Alien may not have warranted a sequel, but one was done, and done right, and in a way that made perfect sense.

Perhaps the writer of the sequel will possess a similar muse as James Cameron did with ALIENS.

I guess we'll just have to wait and see what happens with it. I didn't hate Prometheus like some did. I wouldn't go so far as to say I loved it either, but it had some things to offer.

It was half a good film - once people started getting infected with stuff it started to go downhill a little, and as soon as the big guy got woken up and started killing people instead of talking I lost all interest.

The music was good though.
