Ridley Scott 'really wants' Prometheus sequel

June 11th, 2012

Sir Ridley Scott ''really wants'' to make a 'Prometheus' sequel.

The acclaimed filmmaker enjoyed making the sci-fi blockbuster - which stars Noomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender and Charlize Theron - and wants to work on a follow-up, though he admits he has no idea what he would do to extend the story.

He told Collider: ''I really enjoyed it so much, I really want to do the sequel, it's interesting to do a sequel because it leaves the door so open to some huge questions.

''I don't know how to do it but when we get to it we probably will.''

Writer Damon Lindelof recently admitted he and the director had to work hard to leave the movie open to a sequel, but complete enough in case a follow-up wasn't made.

He said: ''Ridley was very interested in talking about, 'What are the answers to the questions that 'Prometheus' is posing that are not necessarily definitively spelled out in the body of 'Prometheus'?'

''I said to him, 'We should be prepared for people to feel frustrated if we're going to be withholding, so we have to be very careful about what we're saving for later', because it's not a foregone conclusion that there are going to be sequels.''
