Ridley Scott Still Moving Forward on ‘Prometheus 2,’ Says Noomi Rapace

It’s almost been a year since Ridley Scott’s Prometheus blasted into theaters leaving half the world disappointed. The other half, or maybe even less than half, thought the quasi Alien prequel was pretty fantastic. A year later, I stand by this having watched it on Blu-ray multiple times. It’s awesome.

With that said, most of you are about to groan as I report that Scott is still developing a sequel over at Fox. Noomi Rapace, who starred as Elizabeth Shaw in the first film, reveals to The Playlist that they’re currently working on the screenplay.

They’re working on the script. I met Ridley in London a couple of weeks ago,” said Rapace. “I would love to work with him again and I know that he would like to do another one. It’s just like we need to find the right story. I hope we will.

And it’s interesting because people, most people I’ve talked to who see the movie, see things that are quite different. Some people who see the movie many times and discover new things. There are all these religious aspects and there are very interesting conversations,” Rapace explained. “And for me, if we do a second one, there are a lot of things to explore in there and to continue.” She added: “I would love to do it.

Rapace is the franchise’s new lead, so it would be a shocker if she wasn’t already locked in for the trilogy. I’d go as far as to say, it’s not her choice.

    The movie was not what it could have been, but was still damn entertaining and interesting. So, move on with the sequel please. And kick Lindelof out.

    I was extremely disappointed with “Prometheus” mainly because it lack suspense and most of all logic. The characters were expendable, the monsters meh and the gag of running in a continuous straight line now a classic! However, everything technically was spot on and the only real sequence that thrilled me was the C-section. I hope the sequel is more “serious” and not just silly in plot points.

      Absolutely agree. The movie, from a technical perspective, is flawless. The story, characters and logic was pretty much garbage. Just some of the best looking garbage I’ve seen. Would love to have Ridley leave and let someone else actually do a prequel we were all told we were getting. One that the story actually deserves.

    i didn’t hate it but i didn’t love it either but i DEFINITELY want a sequel. Noomi says “It’s just like we need to find the right story”. i thought they already had the story pretty much. this makes me think that they didn’t know what they were really heading towards with the first film’s storyline. i can see the sequel being better than the first movie. more Engineers would be awesome!

    • djblack1313

      oh, more Engineers would be awesome and less stupid “scientists” who run up to play paddy cakes with vagina snakes please.

    Loved the visuals and hope the sequels improve upon the original plot and character-wise.

    Prometheus was one of my favorite experiences of that year, but it took me a couple viewings to get that opinion. I really do think it’s fantastic, and we need another one.
