Hey guys, remember "Prometheus?" Last summer, everyone was totally psyched up for Ridley Scott's long-awaited prequel to his 1979 masterpiece "Alien." And then the movie actually came out and it was, like, the most confusing mess of nonsense ever put together.
Well, if you're into that sort of thing then we've got some good news for you, as star Noomi Rapace has revealed to indieWire that Scott and company are already hard at work on a script for "Prometheus 2."
Geez, the bruise on our forehead from all that slapping hasn't even healed yet!
Not that we blame Rapace for the shortcomings of "Prometheus;" she was totally cool in it, which is why we're stoked to hear Rapace say that she's up for a second go-round.
"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."
As for the story, naturally she's not as down on Damon Lindelof's script for "Prometheus" as most people.
"It's interesting because people, most people I've talked to who see the movie, see things that are quite different," Rapace 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."
Frankly, we're most surprised to hear that there are people who have seen the movie "many times." But then again, it probably was foolish to expect storytelling clarity from Lindelof, who is best known for endlessly and randomly jerking fans around on "Lost" for six years. Lindelof, for what it's worth, won't be doing the script for "Prometheus 2," but Rapace wouldn't reveal who is working on it.
Whoever it is, though, it has to be better than the first one. Right? Right?!
