David Will Return!

Fans of Michael Fassbender’s “David” in the 2012 sci-fi thriller Prometheus can sleep well tonight knowing that he will return in Prometheus 2, which director Ridley Scott confirmed would begin filming in February.

Scott told the interviewer, “…Fassbender will do this one with me, and it’s meant to start production in February. I’m in prep, now.

Scott also confessed that the plot of the first film was a bit too much for one film, and that the next film will continue Dr. Elizabeth Shaw’s mission of finding the Engineer’s home planet. “You can either say, leave the first film alone and jump ahead, but you can’t because it ends on too specific a plot sentence as she says, I want to go where they came from, I don’t want to go back to where I came from. I thought the subtext of that film was a bit florid and grandiose, but it asks a good question: who created us?
