Prometheus may have shared its secrets on the big screen, but it’s not about to leave the headlines just yet, as Ridley Scott has been talking to THR about his potential plans for a sequel (some spoilers ahead, so tread carefully).
“From the very beginning, I was working from a premise that lent itself to a sequel,” says Scott. “I really don’t want to meet God in the first one. I want to leave it open to Shaw saying, ‘I don’t want to go back to where I came from. I want to go where they came from.'”
Scott went on to refer to the fact that the original title for Prometheus was going to be Paradise , intimating that Paradise would probably now be the title of the sequel.
“I’d love to explore where [ Dr. Shaw ] goes next and what does she do when she gets there,” says Scott, “because if it is paradise, paradise can not be what you think it is. Paradise has a connotation of being extremely sinister and ominous.”
“Because [ the Engineers ] are such aggressive fuckers,” he continues, “I always had it in there that the God-like creature that you will see actually is not so nice, and is certainly not God.” Sounds to us like a sequel is a matter of when and not if…
