Ridley Scott made the surprising announcement last month that Prometheus 2 will not be featuring any of our beloved Xenomorphs, which has made many wonder in what direction the sequel is going to take the franchise. Even star Noomi Rapace isn’t so sure what Scott has in mind, though she has some ideas. Read on!
In an interview with MTV UK, Rapace was pressed for details about the impending sequel and offered up some insight into the mind of her character, Elizabeth Shaw, who will presumably be the central character in the film.
“I know that Elizabeth Shaw wants to go to Paradise; you know, I say that in the first one,” said Rapace. “She can’t go to Earth; there’s nothing left for her there really. And she wants to go where they came from, those giant creatures. In her head that’s dark paradise, in a way. So what’s there? I don’t know. I think she wants answers.”
So who will be the main villains of Prometheus 2, if not the Xenomorphs? Will it again be the Engineers, or does Scott have something else up his sleeve? Rapace claims not to know, but she didn’t shy away from the question.
“Maybe God or [the] devil,” the actress posited. “I don’t know. I don’t know where he’s going to take us, but I can’t wait to go there. I don’t know what we’re going to discover.”
A new draft of the Prometheus 2 screenplay is currently being penned, and it’s only a matter of time before we learn more. So hang in there, and stay tuned!
