With Prometheus now safely out on DVD and Blu-ray, and inciting all manner of arguments once more, director Ridley Scott has done one or two promotional interviews to support the releae.
One of those was with the Metro, and it briefly asked him as to the direction of the planned Prometheus sequel.

It can explain to her how to put the head back on the body and she’s gonna think about that long and hard because, once the head is back on his body, he’s dangerous”.
