Ridley Scott Talks Sequels to Prometheus and Blade Runner
October 11, 2012
Prometheus was one of the more controversial films of the summer, but for many fans it left them wanting more. Director Ridley Scott spoke with Metro about what the proposed sequel would be like.
"Prometheus evolved into a whole other universe.You’ve got a person [Noomi Rapace’s Elizabeth Shaw] with a head in a bag [ Michael Fassbender’s David] that functions and has an IQ of 350. It can explain to her how to put the head back on the body and she’s gonna think about that long and hard because, once the head is back on his body, he’s dangerous," he said.
When asked if the film was that easy, he replied, "I wish it was that easy. They’re going off to paradise but it could be the most savage, horrible place. Who are the Engineers?"
The subject then switched to Blade Runner, which Scott has also been very vocal about sequelizing as well. He said: "It’s not a rumour – it’s happening. With Harrison Ford? I don’t know yet. Is he too old? Well, he was a Nexus-6 so we don’t know how long he can live [laughs]. And that’s all I’m going to say at this stage."
