Sir Ridley Scott Teases PROMETHEUS Sequel...And Ford In That BLADE RUNNER Follow-Up!?!?!?!



Metro has a short question and answer with Sir Ridley Scott - and thanks to Aint It Cool reader Uridium for the heads up about this.

While it's a very quick exchange, a few brief asides are sure to send a significant charge through the Geekverse.  


Regarding the PROMETHEUS sequel (a few persistent rumors say it's called PARADISE - I certainly wouldn't take that to the bank just yet, though), Scott says...

You’ve got a person [Noomi Rapace’s Elizabeth Shaw] with a head in a bag [ Michael Fassbender’s David] that functions and has an IQ of 350. 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. 


So that’s the sequel? 

[Laughs] I wish it was that easy. They’re going off to paradise but it could be the most savage, horrible place. Who are the Engineers?


And..regarding that new BLADE RUNNERverse movie we've been hearing about lately...

It’s not a rumour – it’s happening. With Harrison Ford? I don’t know yet. Is he too old? Well, he was a Nexus-6 so we don’t know how long he can live [laughs]. And that’s all I’m going to say at this stage.

More HERE at Metro.  

The PROMETHEUS Blu-ray hit this week - a dazzling product.   I find myself both shocked and amazed by its alternate scenes/deleted material.  Three sequences in particular...the alternate Fifield monster incursion, the alternate finale conflict between Rapace and the Engineer, and the alternate awakening of the Engineer/Weyland confrontation...I felt were very much superior to versions used in the theatrical release.  This said, I've yet to listen to these sequences with Scott's optional audio commentary I haven't heard the rationale for why they were tweaked/excised.  But, I liked these alternate takes - a lot.  If you have the set, or get it, be sure to check 'em out...
