So, the plot thickens for Noomi Rapace’s Prometheus sequel…
The sci-fi film’s director Ridley Scott has offered some insight into the planned sequel to Prometheus, which will see the 32-year-old half-Spanish actress reprise her role as archaeologist Elizabeth Shaw.
In an interview with Metro, Scott talked candidly about his idea on how Rapace’s and Michael Fassbender‘s characters would make their return in the untitled Prometheus sequel.
At the end of the film, which has earned $402 million worldwide, Rapace’s character runs away from the hellish planet while carrying the head of Fassbender’s David, an android that acts as the ship’s butler and maintenance man.
“Prometheus evolved into a whole other universe,” Ridley explained, before hinting that the scene might lead to an important event in the sequel.
“You’ve got a person [Noomi’s Elizabeth] with a head in a bag [Michael’s David] that functions and has an IQ of 350,” he elaborated further. “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.”
Asked if the sequel would revolve around David and Elizabeth’s story, Scott said, “[Laughs] I wish it was that easy.” He added, “They’re going off to paradise but it could be the most savage, horrible place. Who are the Engineers?”
No word yet on when production of the sequel would begin.
