As Ridley Scott continues to make the rounds, promoting his upcoming Matt Damon science-fiction film, The Martian, Scott has been talking more about the Prometheus franchise. In an interview with German publication Film Flutter, Ridley Scott has talked specifically about the future of the Prometheus franchise and the possibility of another 2 sequels:
“The whole point is to explain the Alien franchise and how and why the creation of the aliens. I always saw the Alien as a type of biological warfare. For me, the original spaceship that I call the croissant, a warship that contains these biomechanoids creatures, which is all about destruction.”
When asked if the Prometheus films will tie directly into the Alien films, Ridley Scott responded: “Yes, but it will not be the next. It will be in the next but Prometheus or perhaps even in a later, before we are in a sense back in the Alien franchise.”
So it would certainly look like Ridley Scott has bigger plans for the Prometheus franchise. What do you guys and girls reckon to this news? Thanks to Bloody Disgusting and Joel Foster for the tip and to community member Wmmvrrvrrmm for the link to the actual interview.
