Ridley Scott says the first Prometheus sequel will be called Alien: Paradise Lost

The reaction to the 2012 Alien sort-of-prequel Prometheus has been, at best, polarizing. But director Ridley Scott confirmed yesterday that sequels to the movie are coming, and in an interview today, he revealed the name of the first: Alien: Paradise Lost.

The news came in an interview with Hey U Guys, in which Scott says the epic poem by John Miltion has a "similarity" with the film. When asked about potential sequels, Scott said, "Well actually, really it’s going to be Alien: Paradise Lost, so Prometheus 2 is not really going to be — it’s going to be Alien: Paradise Lost now."

Scott, however, may have more pressing business. His latest movie, The Martian, is scheduled to hit theaters next week.
