"If you like ['Prometheus'] and want more, there is totally a design for this story to continue in cool and unexpected ways," revealed Lindelof, adding that the movie will create "a new, grand mythology."
Initially developed as a prequel to director Ridley Scott‘s 1979 sci-fi horror classic Alien, Prometheus follows the crew of the spaceship Prometheus as they explore an ancient alien civilisation and try to trace the origins of the human race, being tested to their physical and mental limits along the way.
Continuing to "tip-toe" his way through the rest of the Q & A, Lindelof refused to reveal any major details about the plot, but he did reveal that, “The characters ask questions. They get answers. Then they run and scream a lot.”
So which direction will "Prometheus 2" head in? Director Ridley Scott summed it up rather nicely in a recent interview with The Daily Beast, "For 'Prometheus,' I came back to a very simple question that haunted me that appears in the first 'Alien,' and no one answered in subsequent 'Alien' films: who was the Space Jockey – the big guy in the seat? Once you start into the evolution of the story, it moves so far away from 'Alien' that there's only the mere DNA of the original in 'Prometheus.'"
Prometheus, starring Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron and Idris Elba, hits theaters nationwide on June 1st.
