‘Blade Runner’ Sequel Could Mean More Delay for ‘Prometheus 2′ Ridley Scott is busy. He’s got his Moses tale Exodus: Gods and Monsters opening in December and then will shoot The Martian with Matt Damon, with a November 2015 release already set for that novel adaptation.

We’ve been under the impression that Prometheus 2 would hit in 2016, but we’re now wondering if that is even less likely than it once was. Why?
