ETA: Actually, that premise would almost make it a blockbuster remake of Women of the Prehistoric Planet.
But it could work. Prometheus, after all, is the Titan who molded humans from clay and stole fire from the gods.

I'd much rather they go with Cain and Abel. Maybe Wayland has two "sons" on this trip, his biological son and his android and it becomes clear the android is the favored son and the biological son kills the android. At least that would be a newer take on the Genesis meets the Future theme.

What do you think?
Write it.

I'm sure by the time your done it wont resemble the alien franchise or Prometheus and you'll have the hottest new sci-fi spec in town.

50 Shades of Grey started out as fan fic, you can too. If all else fails, throw in some alien vs. android bondage.

I'm unfamiliar with 50 shades of Grey, what's the story behind that?

As far as writing a different take on prometheus... I was mainly spitballing my own random thoughts, but some of those ideas could trickle into a future script one day.

Oh wait! Just now an idea for a cool science fiction film just struck me.

Sort of like District 9 with a twist.. A derelict alien space ship hovers in our atmosphere for months on end. When a science team goes to investigate the craft, they find the Alien crew dead or missing.. And a lone human survivor on the craft who's been missing since 1957...

This is the part where you tell me the idea sold last week for a mid six figure deal. haha

If I heard/read correct, it originated as Twilight fan fiction.

I don't disagree with the sentiment... but apparently it does.
