Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus' sequel title has a familiar ring

Ridley Scott announced the title of the Prometheus sequel, and it seems to bring us closer to the original sci-fi horror film it is based on.

In an interview with HeyUGuys, Scott said the title of the new film is Alien: Paradise Lost, a take on John Milton's classic poem. He notes that the film does not necessarily echo the plot of the poem. It has not been confirmed, but reports are Scott plans three sequels, which will eventually tie into the original Alien.
