Ridley Scott is currently on a press tour to promote the October 2nd release of The Martian, and while the new Matt Damon-led film is garnering rave reviews, Scott also has plenty of information to dish out concerning his other beloved sci-fi franchise: Alien. When asked about his follow up to 2012’s Prometheus, the director revealed that he’s planning on taking several films to bridge the gap between the prequel and the events of Alien, so we may be seeing a Prometheus 3 and 4 in our future. The director also dropped a big nugget of nerd-gold in our laps, revealing the new title for Prometheus 2, and it’s both surprising and not-surprising, if you’ve been paying attention to Ridley’s thoughts on how the 2012 film related to the works of John Milton.
