Prometheus 2 is currently in development, according to Noomi Rapace. Many of you are screaming at your screen as you read this, and some you are hopfully happy for this news. I fall into the happy category because I love Prometheus, and have been looking forward to a sequel since I first saw the film in theaters. Damon Lindelof is not returning to work on the script, but Ridley Scott is currently working on Prometheus 2 for Fox.
Rapace spoke to The Playlist and here is what she had to say about the sequel:
“They’re working on the script. I met Ridley in London a couple of weeks ago,” said Rapace. “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.”
When a studio moves forward on a sequel and possible trilogy, they typically lock in a lead star. I would be willing to bet that Rapace is actually already locked in to star. Are you looking forward to Prometheus 2? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
