The current state of Prometheus 2
Noomi Rapace has been chatting to Sir Ridley Scott about the next Prometheus movie...
Whilst it cost a fair amount to make, and appreciating that there was a sizeable marketing bill as well, Ridley Scott's prequel to an Alien prequel, Prometheus, did sizeable business. Earning over $400m at the worldwide box office, and seizing another chunk of change from its home releases, it was revealed pretty soon after the film's release that a follow-up to Prometheus was already on the cards.
But what's the current state of Prometheus 2? Well, Noomi Rapace has given an interview to The Playlist, where she offers a brief update on the project. "They're working on the script", she confirmed. "I met Ridley in London a couple of weeks ago. I would love to work with him again and I know that he would like to do another one. It's just that we need to find the right story. I hope we will".
The planned Prometheus 2, in theory, is the film that glues the Prometheus movies to the Alien franchise. Prometheus 2 is potentially going to be the film that takes place immediately before Alien in the series.
Noomi Rapace wouldn't reveal who the writer who was working on the project was (although we know it's not Damon Lindelof, as has been revealed before). Once we know more, we'll let you know...
