James Cameron wants to Make PROMETHEUS Sequel!

This could be some of the greatest news you read all day! It looks like director James Cameron is interested in directing the sequel to Ridley Scott's Prometheus! This would be incredibly awesome if he's actually serious! It sounds like he is, Here's what the director had to say in a recent interview with Guardian,

There's a gap of a few years between Prometheus and the original Alien. That gap is meant for me to answer all the questions raised in Prometheus.

As you know Cameron directed Aliens, which was the sequel to Scott's original sci-fi horror film Alien so its completely appropriate for Cameron to take on the sequel to Prometheus. During the interview he explained that the idea for the sequel came while talking to Scott during the production of Avatar. 

Ridley came to me, and he saw what I was doing [with Avatar] and the ideas I was exploring. We sat down and talked about Alien, and saw that there's big ideas hidden in these stories. Where do we come from? What does it mean to be human? This was something that Ridley saw as original and something he wanted to be a part of.

He then added,

I'm not sure if Ridley changed his mind, because the movie [Prometheus] turned out fantastic, but it was during those early talks when he brought up the idea of me stepping in to direct a follow-up.

Cameron is obviously very busy these days. He just did a solo dive to the bottom of the deepest part of the ocean, and He's working on Avatar parts 2 and 3, but if he wants to find the time to direct a Prometheus sequel, I'm sure he'll make time for it. The director concluded by saying,

Right now I'm working on Avatar 2. So if Fox wants to wait … we'll see what happens.

He's not officially attached to direct it right now, but it would be incredible if it actually played out that way. There's no doubt Cameron would give us a hell of sequel. Would you like to see Cameron take on the Prometheus sequel?
