Perhaps one of the most polarizing films of last year was Ridley Scott’s Prometheus. Some called it a return to the sci-fi horror genre and others called it one of the worst things ever. If it was the latter, part of the blame could be directed towards the screenplay. Regardless, the film made just enough money to garner a sequel, or at least explore the option of one.
Scott is definitely on board to direct one, and it seems that he’s been talking to film star Noomi Rapace about it as well. During a press conference for Dead Man Down, the actress confirmed that she has been talking to the director to discuss Prometheus 2 and what we could possible see in it.
Rapace spoke to The Playlist about the possibility of the sequel:
They’re working on the script. 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.
It always comes down to the story. The issue is that the story was the problem in the first film. It sounded nice on paper, but when stretched out to a full-length film, it was too concerned about the questions and not so much about the story. So hopefully they get it right if a sequel does happen.
She goes on to say:
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. 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.
With the way that Prometheus ended, there is definitely room for a sequel, especially for a film that was so polarizing. So what do you think? Should there be a sequel?
