Ridley Scott Talks About "Prometheus" Sequel Title and Story

New postby Shakelford, J. Rusty » Tue Jun 12, 2012 5:11 pm

When Ridley Scott initially signed on to make a prequel to "Alien," he envisioned it as a two-parter. And anyone who's seen "Prometheus," knows that the director did everything in his power to set up a sequel.


"From the very beginning, I was working from a premise that lent itself to a sequel," said Scott. "I really don't want to meet God in the first one. I want to leave it open to [Dr. Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace)] saying, 'I don’t want to go back to where I came from. I want to go where they came from.'"

Writer Damon Lindelof added: "['Prometheus'] has two children: One of these children grows up to be 'Alien,' but the other child is going to grow up, and God knows what happens to them. And that's what the sequel to 'Prometheus' would be."

Scott went on to explain that the original title of "Prometheus" was "Paradise." When Lindelof came on board, he changed the story to focus on bigger ideas of the "Alien" franchise, rather than on the creatures. As a result, the "Paradise" title will now likely become the name of the sequel, which will take us to the home planet of the Engineers. But that home planet will be far from paradise.

“Because [the Engineers] are such aggressive f*ckers, I always had it in there that the God-like creature that you will see actually is not so nice, and is certainly not God," Scott explained. "I'd love to explore where the [Dr. Shaw] goes next and what does she do when she gets there, because if it is paradise, paradise can not be what you think it is. Paradise has a connotation of being extremely sinister and ominous."

Scott is very interested in returning for the sequel and so is Lindelof, but Lindelof believes a new writer should step in. "It could actually benefit going into someone else's able hand," he said. "Although, I feel like some storyline has already been constructed based on conversations that Ridley and I had about it."

Since "Prometheus" had a strong opening for an R-rated movie, it's very possible that 20th Century Fox will pressure him to postpone his other projects in order to make a sequel. But the follow-up will definitely not happen before the director shoots "The Counselor."
