Fassbender keen on Prometheus sequel with Scott

Michael Fassbender wants to reunite with Ridley Scott for a 'Prometheus' sequel.

The 'Shame' star plays an android named David in the prequel to the 'Alien' franchise and revealed he would jump at the chance to take part in a follow-up, which Ridley has previously hinted at, if the project ever materialised.

When questioned by Digital Spy on whether he would return for a second film, Michael confirmed: "That's what I'm hoping."

Michael also spoke fondly of his time shooting the film, noting that working with both Ridley and the stellar cast - which included Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace and Idris Elba - put him under pressure to perform to the best of his abilities.

He said: "I felt very privileged to be part of the team and it also made me concern myself that I wasn't a weak part of the team, that I did my homework as best I could and that I came to work and had something to offer."

"I think for all of us on the job, all crew members, have a feeling that they're working on something special when they're working with Ridley."
