Two months after declaring "The beast is done," in reference to H.R. Giger’s iconic Xenomorph, Ridley Scott explains his Prometheus sequel will "reintroduce a fresher form of alien."
"[Prometheus 2] is fresh and getting away from gods and dragons and shit,” the filmmaker tells The Australian. “If I see one more dragon I’m going to shoot myself. Stop the dragons. [The original Alien] is the definitive dragon and he’s a motherfucker. The alien’s real, which is why it’s probably one of the scariest monsters in film history. So with Prometheus 2 what I’m trying to do is reintroduce a fresher form of alien in the third act.”
The "gods" reference implies that the sequel will move away from the creation mythos Scott began to weave in the first Prometheus.
Prometheus 2 opens March 4, 2016.
