Michael Fassbender Confirms Prometheus 2, He Just Doesn't Know When It'll Happen

Michael Fassbender is currently riding a wave of critical acclaim for his masked performance in Lenny Abrahamson’s ‘Frank’, but the German/Irish star has recently attracted attention to a sequel to ‘Prometheus’, Ridley Scott’s polarizing sci-fi epic.

When asked by film site Collider if he was looking forward to working with Scott again, Michael said: “For sure. I love Ridley. He’s a master filmmaker.” Then, his X-Men: Days of Future Past co-star James McAvoy jumped in and asked if a sequel was really happening, to which Michael replied “Yeah, but when I don’t know.”

Fassbender was praised for his portrayal of the android character David, but the star told Screenrant that he didn’t do much by way of preparation for the role.  “I didn't have time. I mean, I was still in Shame, we were in New York, so I knew I was going to be coming off Shame and then flew back and I had three weeks, I think, maybe four, before we were on set and we were going,” he explained. 

“So I went straight into it and then it’s like catch up and try to make the most that you can in that time. I just went from one [to] the other. You’ve got to go in and do makeup tests. You’ve got to try all the costume tests, so you go on out to do that and then yeah, sure, any free time you’ve got, I’m at home working on the script, reading and rereading.”

‘Prometheus’ was hugely hyped, but when it arrived it didn’t attract the critical acclaim it was ‘supposed to’, accumulating a score of 75% on Rotten Tomatoes. The Wrap says that the storyline for the film’s sequel will be similar to director Scott's first and seminal ‘Alien’ film.
