Michael Fassbender says Prometheus sequel is set to launch soon

Back in March, it was announced that Ridley Scott would indeed return as director for the Prometheus sequel and that March 6, 2016, had been chosen as a release date by 20th Century Fox.  Filming is to begin later this fall, and writers Michael Green (Green Lantern) and Jack Paglen (Transcendence) were whipping the screenplay into shape after the departure of Damon Lindelof.
