Fans and audiences have been eagerly awaiting news about Prometheus 2. Despite the film being less than a year and a half away from its release date, very little is actually known about what we can expect. But this week, director Ridley Scott finally gave us some new info about the Alien prequel/sequel film.
Scott did an interview with The Australian (via Dark Horizons) while promoting another one of his upcoming films. During the interview he revealed that Prometheus 2 would introduce a “fresh” monster and is “getting away from gods and dragons and s–t. If I see one more dragon I’m going to shoot myself. Stop the dragons.”
The dragon he is referring to is the original monster created by H.R. Giger for Alien. Scott described the titular alien as the “definitive dragon,” saying, “The alien’s real which is why it’s probably one of the scariest monsters in film history.”
Apparently Prometheus 2 will likely not include the iconic alien which was teased at the end of Prometheus. Instead, Scott plans to introduce something new and terrifying all together. “With Prometheus 2 what I’m trying to do is reintroduce a fresher form of alien in the third act,” says Scott.
Prometheus 2 will see the return of Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender. It is set for a March 4, 2016 release.
