Prometheus 2 Script is in the Works, Noomi Rapace Eager to Return

Noomi Rapace has started talking about her excitement for Prometheus 2. Well, that’s nice someone is excited for the project.

This past summer saw the release of Prometheus, a prequel to the entire Alien series of films. While it was set up to give numerous answers, it ended up being a frustrating mess of a film that made little to no sense and left you with more questions than it answered. While a sequel has already been discussed, we really didn’t know if it would happen due to the fairly weak box office results of the first film. ($126,477,084 domestic/$276,877,385 foreign off of a $130 million dollar budget)

Whatever the case may be, Noomi Rapace, the star of the first film, is excited for the follow-up. “They’re working on the script. I met Ridley [Scott] in London a couple of weeks ago,” Rapace told The Playlist. “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.”

This comment alone worries me. The first film ended with a cliffhanger, so how could you not have “the right story” already in mind? Did they not have a resolution plotted out? Now is a good time to figure this out?

Whatever the case, Rapace is very up for diving back into this mess of a story. “I love working with Ridley. It was pure joy. It was really hard work sometimes. My body was a complete mess – I had bruises and cuts and emotionally I was a bit slammed. But being in his world and his universe was such an amazing experience.”

Beyond her anticipation of going through this experience again, she is also interested in how the audiences will react to it. “[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. And for me, if we do a second one, there are a lot of things to explore in there and to continue. I would love to do it.”

I did see something in the original. It’s called a mess of a film that had no clue where it’s going.

Either way, it’s looking pretty likely Prometheus 2 will indeed be making its way to theaters to keep audiences angry and confused.
