Prometheus 2 Won't Include Xenomorphs Says Ridley Scott
Subscribe Now! ► bit.ly/SubClevverMovies

Xenomorphs are xe-no-more in the Prometheus sequel according to director Ridley Scott. The classic alien creatures burst onto the scene and into our hearts in Scott’s 1979’s Alien. Three sequels, two spinoffs, a prequel of sorts and countless burst chests later, it seems like one of the most iconic movie villians of all-time may be officially retired. Despite their brief appearance in 2012’s Prometheus, fans thirst to see their favorite facehuggers and chestbursters do some damage doesn’t seem to have been quenched, but if you ask Ridley Scott, he’s not too concerned with the less-than-favorable reaction to his return to the franchise. The sci-fi movie legend recently sat down with Yahoo! Movies UK and had quite a few things to say about the much-beloved sinister creatures from the classic franchise. The Prometheus sequel rumored to be titled “Prometheus: Paradise” has already produced fifteen evolving drafts according to Ridley, but the director remains confident in regards to the franchise’s future and the direction he set up in Prometheus with the marshmallow-white Engineers, but if you were hoping to see the Xenomorphs return, we’ve got some bad news. The director was pretty clear about their future saying quote, “The beast is done. Cooked. After four, I think it wears out a little bit. There’s only so much snarling you can do. I think you’ve got to come back with something more interesting. And I think we’ve found the next step. I thought the Engineers were quite a good start.” So, that’s a pretty firm “no” for catching the acid-dripping, sharp-toothy creeper creatures in the follow-up to Prometheus, but a good hint that we could catch more of the Engineers’ side of the story. The Prometheus sequel wasn’t the only franchise in the director’s universe that he spoke of though – the long-put off Blade Runner sequel has been made official and Scott revealed he had actually met with star Harrison Ford the day prior to his Star Wars-related accident to discuss the next step in Rick Deckard’s story. Though Ridley is uncertain when a Blade Runner sequel will happen thanks to Ford’s commitment to Star Wars, he did reveal that the script is finished and ready to go. Despite previous reports that the film could be a reboot, Scott confirmed that it will be a straight sequel calling it “quite surprisingly clever.” In the meantime, Scott is putting the finishing touches on his Exodus: Gods and Kings starring Christian Bale as the biblical Moses which is set to hit theaters on December 12th. He’ll follow that up with The Martian starring Matt Damon as an astronaut stranded on Mars which is currently scheduled to hit theaters on November 25th, 2015. Here’s hoping we don’t have to wait too long to see what Scott has cooking for the Engineers and Rick, but in the meantime, if this story hasn’t quite satisfied your itch to talk about sequels, go ahead and click here to check out our list of 7 movies we’d like to see get sequels.
