With a project as massive as Prometheus, it’s nigh impossible to place blame on any single individual, but considering the original draft and the work he did adding incomprehensibility, it’s not unfair to ask Damon Lindelof what happened there. Maybe Ridley Scott and company won’t let him mess with the script to the sequel, which is being written right now.
In an interview with The Playlist, Noomi Rapace confirmed that thoughts are being thunk, and words are finding their way to paper. “They’re working on the script,” the actress said. “I met Ridley in London a couple of weeks ago. I would love to work with him again and I know that he would like to do another one. It’s just like we need to find the right story. I hope we will.”
Ah, the magic words. Finding the right story. Let’s also hope they find it, and that my headline turns out to be a tongue-in-cheek quip instead of a repeated reality for the franchise.
