Ridley Scott ‘Really Wants’ a Prometheus Sequel

Ridley ScottRidley Scott "really wants" to make a Prometheus sequel.

The acclaimed filmmaker enjoyed making the sci-fi blockbuster - which stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender and Charlize Theron - and wants to work on a follow-up, though he admits he has no idea what he would do to extend the story.

"I really enjoyed it so much, I really want to do the sequel, it's interesting to do a sequel because it leaves the door so open to some huge questions. I don't know how to do it but when we get to it we probably will," he said.

Writer Damon Lindelof recently admitted he and the director had to work hard to leave the movie open to a sequel, but complete enough in case a follow-up wasn't made.

"Ridley was very interested in talking about, 'What are the answers to the questions that Prometheus is posing that are not necessarily definitively spelled out in the body of Prometheus?' I said to him, 'We should be prepared for people to feel frustrated if we're going to be withholding, so we have to be very careful about what we're saving for later,' because it's not a foregone conclusion that there are going to be sequels," Lindelof said.
