Ha ha... Good News...
I expect us to hear more by November mind.... maybe the source was telling the Truth then ;)
They did turn around and say at first that shooting should be wrapped up by end of March but then the person who told me this said he may have misunderstood the source who informed him as they said that March was a significant date and thus either when they hopped to had finished shooting or start shooting... but they definately said March was a important date as far as Shooting goes..
That also Production actually starts around November....
I am still taking what my source said with pinch of salt mind, untill more information comes out that adds up more with the information given in the post i presented.

Hiya Dave, it's been a long wait but we finally have some encouraging news!:)
One things for sure, Ridley doesn't hang about. He always has a fast turnaround on all of his projects.
Yeah, after The Martian hits theatres there will hopefully be more detail and interviews with Ridley regarding Prom 2!

We still have to wait for Ridley to come out in other media to confirm this News but if it is the case of a January Start to main principal photography then typically i would say yes a March-May Release date 2017 as source speculated could seem about right i think for sure the earlest would be Fall 2016 but this seems to be a date Alien 5 could be out.
With this News means that indeed Pre-Production is underway and main Production could well begin around Autum and so indeed once The Martian is out i think the months between Nov 2015 and May 2016 will be a very busy and interesting 6 months for more news and information to start to come to light.
I think we can now all start to get EXCITED ;)
Only way to see if i was bieng fed a load of Porkies would be once The Martian is out, as i had said the source said the movie is happening Draft done by October 2014 but waiting on Ridley and Cast commitments which should be freed up after November which is when they said Production will begin and then after and connected to March is to do with Shooting, they told me Shooting will wrap up about March, and i said that seem early if movie not in production untill November but they said it could be that the source who told him meant that March could be the start of shooting but either way that by March Shooting would either begin or finish and that this information was 100% correct and that in time information would come out to support this...
Now after The Martian is out and certainly between then and Summer of next year surely information will come out that would either support or go against what i was told in this thread...

It does all seem to fall into place now. What your 'contact' said. Plus the fact that Rapace and Fassbender have been busy and should be freed up at the right time.
Ridley said the sequel would be delayed because of his other commitments also.
Yeah I am already EXCITED!

Yeah at least its going to stop them worrying the movie would ever be done, but indeed looks for sure the March 2016 release date wont happen...
The person is not really letting us know any more, they claim they have not heard nothing more and person they heard off will not say no more..... so all i had was the points i made in that Topic and another after and its a case of in time will we see if news that comes out supports them...... but it certainly looks like a very dark movie... from the description of concept work that the person had supposed to had seen.
also they vaguely said and i think i mentioned here, that one Creature would be Bio-Mechanical more in nature like Xeno and Giger work.... other would be more See through like a Jelly Fish or something and potentially follow ideas of Star Beast.... again we shall have to wait and see.

I think we should wait confirmation of the FOX before being excited but I'm very optimistic. Total Film is a good informer. Prometheus 2 is probably the next Ridley Scott.
Yes The Cartel was announced recently, but there is no script for this movie! Prometheus 2 has a script and shooting date seems perfect with the agenda of Ridley Scott!
I am sure that the post production has begun, Ridley perform always several things at once, I think Arthur Max is already working on the sets and design, Janty Yates on costumes ...It was the same for The Martian. When he edited Exodus, he prepared the storyboard of The Martian. Fast!
Just can't wait for confirmation and maybe a release date! Maybe the end of 2016 but certainly the first semester 2017!

I love the score of Streitenfeld but I don't think it will work again with Scott.
Harry Gregson Williams would be a perfect choice , 'Life' is the best theme of the movie and it's a brilliant composer when working with Scott (Kingdom Of Heaven, 2-3 themes in Exodus and The Martian)!

Ridley is good at planing multiple projects and managing time scales, he does at times shoot parts of a movie say one set of months for say 40-70 days then months latter a few scenes for 10-15 days and then even at post production of the majority of a project he would add a few more shoots that take a few days.
We dont know if they have shot anything already, they could have done a few shots while on the set of Prometheus way back in 2011... we cant be sure... he could even do few shots at the end of the year when say Fasbender and Rapace are free... but it seems majority of shooting will take place early 2016.
which for me leaves a 2016 date as unlikely with post production and i am sure Ridley would be wanting to showcase us a Epic or Dark looking World and who knows how many species and so a lot of the work could involve Green Screens and Artist draw sets and CGI work.. maybe some could be started pre-production but i think this movie could also have a lot of post production.
A lot will depend on other Projects Scott is involved in as to roughly when we shall see a release... and so i think a Early 2017 Release could make sense but a lot depends on exactly how many cast members are cast... The Martian does not have a massive Cast, if Prometheus 2 is mainly Shaw and David and Engineers, Monsters and other being or beings then yes potentially a Fall 2016 to Early 2017 could work.
But if the movie is to explore more of the galaxy as far as new races, or even and also any scenes related to Weyland Company at HQ near Earth or even going back to LV 223 then i think it would take longer production time.... but certainly think we shall see the movie by Summer 2017.
So i think a early May 2017 give or take 8 weeks would be what i think would be the release date but as for now, untill more information comes out we just know that work will mainly commence early 2016 which could leave a 10-15 month typical main shooting and post production to release schedule.

I agree with BigDave. A release in summer 2017 makes sense. If the premiere is in March or so, the film will be released worldwide some months later... Can't believe we have to wait nearly two years.. However, in the audiocommentary of Exodus, Scott said that he used one shot from Prometheus for Exodus. So I think some unused scenes could be used for P2.

With regards to the music, I suspect we will hear a much more tense and unsettling score - likely evoking the same sense of steadily mounting terror present in Alien. If that is the case, I will be exceptionally happy! I do not need anything fancy; just a story that keeps my mind racing with the unknown and music that keeps my pulse from remaining at a resting rate for extended periods! :)
