Prometheus: Part Deux! Are We Ready?by: Posted:
After summer’s nail-biting space drama “Prometheus,” audiences were left asking a lot of pointed, intelligent questions regarding the fate of the characters.
Or, there were those like me were going, “Huh. Really? But…? Huh.”
But there is good news for both ends of the spectrum! A sequel to the prequel might currently be in the works, and aims to tie those open endings into a nice, neat gory space bow for us.
Yet again, Sigourney Weaver in her underwear is not, reportedly, involved. Sorry, “Alien” fans.
I will do my best to address the questions that “Prometheus: The Triumphant Return!” will more than likely address with as few spoilers as possible, so as not to ruin the experience for those who have yet to see the movie.
1) What the heck was that stuff?
2) Where is she… wait? She’s kidding, right? She can’t just… but!
3) Seriously, what is it and why is it so important? It didn’t seem that important before, but now it’s so important?
4) Wait, so whose side is he on? And where did he come from?
5) Where is Sigourney Weaver?
The film is still in its early stage and probably won’t be hitting theaters for some time. Fox president Emma Watts told THR, “… we have to get it right. We can’t rush it.”
This means we might not see a legitimate “Prometheus” sequel until 2014, or even later, especially because main character Michael Fassbender who has already signed on for the flick, is currently in the midst of filming Ridley Scott’s “The Counselor.”
Other actors who have put their name on the project include Noomi Rapace, which is a relief because frankly it would be kind of an empty script otherwise.
Since Ridley Scott has eagerly agreed to put his special touch on “P2,” it’s fair to assume that the film will have that creative, Ridley Scott cool creepiness (cinematic terminology) that had fans in the theaters long after “Alien” hit the big screen.
Scott is reported to be “extremely excited” about the concept of a sequel. However, “Prometheus” and “Lost” writer Damon Lindelof might “not be available” to pen the screenplay for this one, which leaves the studio scrambling to find a writer able to provide the same mind-bending moments and popcorn-tossing jumps that “Prometheus” delivered.
