While Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender's severed head journey through the cosmos, Sir Ridley Scott is hard at work at chronicling their adventures in his script for Prometheus 2. And now he's dropped a fascinating bombshell about the movie: It's going to have a new type of alien we've never seen before.
Here's what Scott told The Australian:
[Prometheus 2 is] fresh" and "getting away from gods and dragons and shit. If I see one more dragon I'm going to shoot myself. Stop the dragons." Rather than a dragon, Scott describes his original Alien as "the definitive dragon and he's a motherf . . ker. The alien's real which is why it's probably one of the scariest monsters in film history," Scott says. "So with Prometheus 2 what I'm trying to do is reintroduce a fresher form of alien in the third act." The Prometheus "baby" alien was, he concedes, "awfully close to the alien" that tormented Sigourney Weaver. His next one promises to be very different.
Fucking dragons, man. I should clarify that this doesn't necessarily mean Ridley Scott is going to make Prometheus 2 soon, or even ever; it seems like he's locked in on a dozen movies, including the Blade Runner sequel. But if Prometheus 2 is the project her chooses to make next, at least we'll know we're getting something new and unique as opposed to the weird quasi-prequel to Alien that the first film was.
