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.
