Ridley Scott Gives Clues on What Will and Won’t Be in Prometheus 2. Ridley Scott recently discussed the development process for the upcoming sequel to 2012’s Prometheus. One of the talking points was the reported appearance of Xenomorphs (also known as that weird looking alien creature from the Alien films).
Prometheus (2012), served as somewhat of a prequel to Scott’s 1976 Sci/Fi Horror classic Alien. However, Scott was the eager to point out that though the film shared a similar universe to the 1976 classic, it was meant to be a story that could stand on its own merits. Which is why, according to Scott there will be no Xenomorphs in the sequel. With Scott telling Yahoo!, “But after four [Alien films], I think it wears out a little bit. There’s only so much snarling you can do. I think you’ve got to come back with something more interesting. And I think we’ve found the next step. I thought the Engineers were quite a good start.”
As spoilers go, that’s a fairly big one. Scott was instead more focused on the relationship between Noomi Rapace’s Shaw and Michael Fassbender’s David. The android David, featured in Prometheus, though by the end was a little worn out to say the least. Prometheus 2 would show David and Shaw’s mission to travel to the ‘engineers’ home-world with the intention of finding out why they hate humanity and want them destroyed.
Scott also mentioned that the script was well on its way with no set release date announced as yet.
The Alien creatures were designed by Swiss surrealist H. R. Giger and have been depicted through various films, comics and a selection of other genres. Prometheus 2 currently has a 2016 release.
