The project doesn’t have a release date yet, but it has been making its
way through development, and now the filmmaker has revealed an
interesting new piece of info about what he has planned: there will be a
new kind of alien.
Scott spoke about Prometheus 2 a bit recently while doing an interview with The Australian (via Bloody Disgusting), and in addition to saying that he wants to move away from “gods
and dragons and shit,” he also added that fans can expect a new kind of
extraterrestrial life to pop up in the future film. Speaking to his
desire to create something real and scary for the upcoming sequel, Scott
told the newspaper,
“The alien’s real which is why it’s probably one of the scariest monsters in film history. So with Prometheus 2 what I’m trying to do is reintroduce a fresher form of alien in the third act.”
So what does that mean for the early Xenomorph that popped out at the end of Prometheus?
Asked about this creature by the newspaper, Ridley Scott admitted that
it was fairly close to the same creature that was featured in the
original Alien back in 1979 – but added that audiences can expect something different out of Prometheus 2.
It’s not hard to appreciate that Ridley Scott wants to go in new directions with creature and alien design in Prometheus 2,
and I look forward to seeing what kind of horrific creature the
director and his team can come up with, but is anyone else at least kind
of upset that we may not see further development of the Xenomorph? One
can argue that the best parts of Prometheus were the ones that enhanced the Alien
universe and made it bigger – and actively moving the sequel away from
that kind of stuff isn’t exactly what some fans want to hear. Hopefully
the movie can reach some kind of middle ground that will appeal to both
With The Martian
locked in with a November 25, 2015 release date, it’s entirely possible
that Ridley Scott won’t be able to sit down and really focus on Prometheus 2
until 2016- meaning that the film is likely about three years away. The
good news is that’s a lot of time to try and figure out exactly the
best way to handle Alien and non-Alien elements in the movie. Hopefully that time is used well.
