Prometheus 2 might be heading to Oz!

It seems that Prometheus 2, the sequel to the Ridley Scott directed 2012 film might be shooting in Australia!

It has been reported that Ridley Scott himself has been searching for locations in Australia for the sci/fi sequel. The filmmaker was also spotted at Fox Studios in Sydney recently, supposedly on tour of the facilities available at the lot.

Episodes 2 and 3 of the Star Wars prequels as well as the Matrix films all filmed scenes at the Sydney lot. While the production on Prometheus 2 hasn’t appeared to be in any rush since the previous film, it does seem to be increasingly a certain thing, with Michael Fassbender commenting during X-Men: Days of Future Past press junkets, that he is indeed set to return to the Prometheus series, and that he will be alongside Noomi Rapace.

Prometheus 2 is looking at a 2016 release.


Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
