While Prometheus wasn't exactly a flawless science fiction classic, it was an entertaining ride with some impressive visuals and a smattering of intriguing ideas. If you were hanging out for a follow up, you are in luck. Star of the first film, Noomi Rapace, has revealed that she has been in contact with director Ridley Scott to talk about Prometheus 2. Apparently they are working on a script with a new writer.
Rapace played the lead role of scientist Elizabeth Shaw in the first film.
"They're working on the script," she told The Playlist. " I met Ridley in London a couple of weeks ago. 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 ... I love working with Ridley. It was pure joy. It was really hard work sometimes. My body was a complete mess – I had bruises and cuts and emotionally I was a bit slammed. But being in his world and his universe was such an amazing experience."
"And it's interesting because people, most people I've talked to who see the movie, see things that are quite different," she said. "Some people who see the movie many times and discover new things. There are all these religious aspects and there are very interesting conversations. And for me, if we do a second one, there are a lot of things to explore in there and to continue. I would love to do it."
Amongst the silly moments and massive plot holes there was some good material in Prometheus. Perhaps with a new writer and a different focus Ridley Scott can guide his second Alien prequel onto more stable science fiction territory. No more patting alien snakes on the head please!
What do you think? Should Ridley Scott continue with a Prometheus sequel? Or should he instead develop one of the other science fiction projects on his long to-do-list. I think I'd much prefer The Man in the High Castle BBC mini series than Prometheus 2.
Is it just me?
