Ridley Scott Drops a Mention of Prometheus 2


Prometheus has not even graced the screen yet and, already, sequel rumblings have begun.  Shock has been privy to some of this talk, hearing that the film is actually a two-parter and, should the movie do well, we might see more pre-Alien goodness unfold in theaters.  Now, director Ridley Scott is fanning the rumor mill flames.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, he dropped Prometheus 2 a mention.  Here is an excerpt.

EW: So, right now, all there is is the concept of doing a Blade Runner film? Nothing more than that?

RS: Right. I just thought Prometheus was so enjoyable — returning to the world of science fiction was so fun — that I wanted to [go back to Blade Runner, too]. I’m also thinking about what the hell I might do for a Prometheus 2.

EW: Do you think there will be one?

RS: [Knocks the wood coffee table and grins]

“Knock on wood” indeed.  Who the hell is getting excited for June 8th?  Um, we are!
