A lot of people had some issues with Prometheus, for many good reasons. One of them was the aliens… or at least the lack of Xenomorphs. Now, as we move closer and closer to Prometheus 2, Ridley Scott is talking about what he’s calling a “fresher” Alien. Here’s what he recently told “The Australian”
[Prometheus 2 is] fresh” and “getting away from gods and dragons and shit. If I see one more dragon I’m going to shoot myself. Stop the dragons.” Rather than a dragon, Scott describes his original Alien as “the definitive dragon and he’s a motherf . . ker. The alien’s real which is why it’s probably one of the scariest monsters in film history,” Scott says. “So with Prometheus 2 what I’m trying to do is reintroduce a fresher form of alien in the third act.” The Prometheus “baby” alien was, he concedes, “awfully close to the alien” that tormented Sigourney Weaver. His next one promises to be very different.
