Noomi Rapace is on the rounds promoting her upcoming movie Dead Man Down which opens March 8th, and it didn’t take long before people asked the actress about Prometheus 2. The sequel officially entered development last August after Prometheus made $400 million worldwide, and now Rapace has confirmed there is a script.
From The Playlist:
Catching up with the actress as she did press rounds for “Dead Man Down,” when we asked where she was in the “Prometheus 2” process, she said, “They’re working on the script. 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 like we need to find the right story. I hope we will.”
“And it’s interesting because people, most people I’ve talked to who see the movie, see things that are quite different. Some people who see the movie many times and discover new things. There are all these religious aspects and there are very interesting conversations,” Rapace explained. “And for me, if we do a second one, there are a lot of things to explore in there and to continue.” She added: “I would love to do it.”
Some fans were disappointed with Ridley Scott’s return to the Alien franchise, but I thought it was one of the better sci-fi movies of recent years, even if some of the characters did stupid things and got themselves killed. Prometheus left us with Elizabeth Shaw (Rapace) and a bodiless David (Michael Fassbender) off in discovery of the Engineers’ homeworld in an attempt to understand why they wanted to destroy humanity, so the sequel will hopefully follow on from that and perhaps explain some things people still want to know about the first film.
