Prometheus 2 – or a Prometheus sequel by some other name – might be in theaters as soon as March 4, 2016.

On Friday, Fox announced plans to release an untitled Ridley Scott movie on that date, and yesterday, The Wrap reported that Green Lantern writer Michael Green was re-writing the Prometheus 2 script with that target date in mind. (Green and Scott are also collaborating on a Blade Runner sequel.)

Production could begin on Prometheus 2 as soon as this fall, after Scott finishes his Moses film, Exodus, starring Christian Bale. According to the report, Michael Fassbender will return for the sequel, as the script calls for multiple android “David”s.

20th Century Fox confirmed that Green was now working on the script. Scott did not immediately respond to EW’s request for comment.
