Depending on which side of the “Prometheus” line you fall on, we’ve either got some good news or some bad news for you. Work has begun on a “Prometheus” sequel.
The Playlist spoke with Noomi Rapace during her press tour for “Dead Man Down,” and the actress confirmed that she met with Ridley Scott earlier this month to talk sequel plans.
“They’re working on the script. I met Ridley in London a couple of weeks ago,” Rapace said. “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 for those of you hoping that a second “Prometheus” would drop the religious and philosophical elements that many complained about in the original just because Damon Lindelof wouldn’t be around this time, we’ve got more bad news for you.
“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,” Rapace said. “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.”
As big fans of “Prometheus,” this is coming as good news for us. The first film’s ambiguity helped make it something different, even when it wasn’t being as successful as we may have wanted it to be. While Lindelof will be missed, it sounds like Scott knows what he wants to do with a second movie.
And that absolutely should involve Michael Fassbender’s head in a bag.
