The filmmaker previously revealed that the classic Hr Giger xenomorph alien would not be featuring in the sci-fi sequel.
Scott told The Australian that he wants the follow-up to "[get away] from gods and dragons and s**t".
"If I see one more dragon I'm going to shoot myself. Stop the dragons," he said.
"[The original Alien] is 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. So with Prometheus 2 what I'm trying to do is reintroduce a fresher form of alien in the third act."

About two months ago, Ridley Scott offered a Prometheus 2 update confirming that the script was being written, that he had “15 drafts evolving” and also that the iconic Xenomorphs will not be part of the sequel.

Filmmaker Ridley Scott has begun doing promotional rounds for the Biblical epic "Exodus: Gods and Kings" and has briefly talked about how the sequels to both "Prometheus" and "Blade Runner" are progressing.
In regards to the sequel to the "Alien" prequel/spin-off, Scott tells The Australian that the follow-up will be "fresh" and is "getting away from gods and dragons and shit. If I see one more dragon I’m going to shoot myself. Stop the dragons."
By dragons, he's referring to H.R. Giger's creature from the original and calls that beastie: "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."

The word “alien” is a big deal when talking about Prometheus and its potential sequel. Ridley Scott‘s film was, after all, a return to the universe he helped create in his defining 1979 film Alien. The signature alien — the xenomorph — from that film even made an appearance in altered but recognizable form at […]

This article contains a potential spoiler for Prometheus 2.
Sir Ridley Scott shows precious little sign of slowing down. His new film, Exodus: Gods And Kings arrives in cinemas this December, and we're hearing rumours of a near three-hour running time for it. Then, he's tackling Andy Weir's excellent book The Martian, and has already cast Matt Damon in the lead role for that one.
Plus, he's juggling Prometheus 2, a film that he's decreasingly likely to direct himself - given his schedule - but is seemingly heavily involved with nonetheless.
Chatting with The Australian, via Bloody Disgusting, Scott confirmed that the script for Prometheus 2 is done and "really good", noting that it's going to be "getting away from gods and dragons and shit. If I see one more dragon I'm going to shoot myself".
While director Ridley Scott is currently hard at work putting together all of the pieces to make The Martian, his next sci-fi thriller starring Matt Damon, that doesn't mean that he isn't still thinking about the future of Prometheus. The project doesn't have a release date yet, but it has been making its way through development, and now the filmmaker has revealed an interesting new piece of info about what he has planned: there will be a new kind of alien. Scott spoke about Prometheus 2 a bit recently while doing an interview with The Australian (via Bloody Disgusting), and in addition to saying that he wants to move away from "gods and dragons and shit," he also added that fans can expect a new kind of extraterrestrial life to pop up in the future film. Speaking to his desire to create something real and scary for the upcoming sequel, »
Ridley Scott’s sort-of Alien prequel, Prometheus, landed with a divisive thunk back in 2012. Despite a mixed reception, both its detractors and fans are eager to see where exactly Scott will take the two remaining survivors for the sequel, Prometheus 2. More importantly, however, is what type of monsters can we expect?
The director has made no bones about the fact that there will be no xenomorphs in the film. Nope, not even one. As the tears began to crust up our sodden cheeks, Noomi Rapace referenced the notion of god and the devil taking over the villainous components. However, whether we’ll actually see a trident-wielding Satan going at it with a bearded white chap seems relegated to the rumour mill dustbin, for now at least.
Scott recently spoke out in an interview with The Australian about the nature of the beast. Whether or not he’s utterly serious, »

The last we heard about Ridley Scott's Prometheus 2 was that Fox hired Green Lantern screenwriter Michael Green to rewrite the script. Not much is known about the story, but it was reported that it would be "much more alien-y and in line with the terrifying tone of past films in the franchise. Additionally, the sequel is expected to feature multiple ‘David’ androids, which means there will be more than one Michael Fassbender on screen at the same time."
We have a little bit more information to share with you today that comes directly from the director. He recently did an interview with The Australian in which he said that the script is written and that it's "really good" and "fresh." He also says it's “getting away from gods and dragons and shit." Adding, "If I see one more dragon I’m going to shoot myself. Stop the dragons. »

Prometheus star Noomi Rapace revealed in an interview last month that the sequel, Prometheus 2, may feature "God or the devil" as the villains, after another report from September claimed that the classic Alien Xenomorphs will not be featured in this follow-up. Director Ridley Scott offered a new update, revealing that he is introducing a "fresher form" of the original Alien in the third act of Prometheus 2.
"It's fresh, getting away from gods and dragons and shit. 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 motherf---er. 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 filmmaker added that the "baby alien" in Prometheus was, "awfully »
In an interview with MTV UK back in October, Noomi Rapace was asked about Prometheus 2, a film she clearly has no idea what the plot will be, but she answered from the perspective of her character and what Elizabeth Shaw might be looking for after she and David (Michael Fassbender) left the planet at the end of the first film: I know that Elizabeth Shaw wants to go to paradise. I say that in the first one. I don't wanna go back. She can't go to Earth. There's nothing left for her there really. She wants to go where they come from, those giants, those creatures. In her head that's the dark paradise. What's therec She wants answers. She wants to know. I feel like I'm sharing her curiosity but also her anger. As far as what is in store for Elizabeth and David once they get to the next stop on their journey, »

In Prometheus, Dr. Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) became "pregnant" with an alien creature. She had it removed with the do-it-yourself surgery pod. That's when we see it's a slimy creature with tentacles. Later on when the Engineer attacks Shaw, her alien infant leaps upon the Engineer, rescuing her. During the alien-on-alien battle Shaw's alien smothers the Engineer's face. When the camera pulls back we see Shaw's alien is actually a large Face Hugger. The final shot in the film is of the Engineer's chest bursting open and a Xenomorph-like creature emerging. Director Ridley Scott acknowledged to The Australian that the final creature is “awfully close to the alien” from 1979's Alien. If you're hoping the Prometheus sequel will bring something new to the table, when it comes to aliens, you're in luck. Scott said, "So with Prometheus 2 what I’m trying to do is reintroduce a fresher form of »
If you didn’t think FX could get any better as a network, you were wrong. After providing countless high quality shows for viewers to enjoy over the past several years (give or take a Tyrant), FX has now picked up a new adventure series starring one of the best actors working in Hollywood today: Tom Hardy. The series, which is titled Taboo, take place in 1813 and follows Hardy’s James Keziah Delaney, who is a “rogue adventurer who returns from Africa with 14 ill-gotten diamonds to seek vengeance after the death of his father. Refusing to sell the family business to the East India Company, he sets out to build his own trade and shipping empire and finds himself playing a very dangerous game.” Taboo was created by Hardy and his father, Chips Hardy. The series is executive produced by Ridley Scott (Prometheus, The Counselor) and written by Steven Knight. »

Netflix has unveiled the full-length Marco Polo trailer after the first teaser debuted online a few weeks ago. The new original series follows the titular explorer’s adventures throughout the 13th century in the court of Kublai Khan, the ruler of the Mongol Empire. Acting as the ruler’s spy, ambassador, and explorer, Marco treks across the Far East, resulting in a story filled with greed, betrayal, sexual intrigue, and rivalry. While this trailer once again teases the massive scope and gorgeous landscapes of the show (Kon-Tiki and Pirates 5 helmers Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg directed the first two episodes), there are some more character-centric shots that are less impressive. Regardless, I’m curious to see if Netflix’s first “large-scale period epic” original series is a success. Check out the new Marco Polo trailer after the jump. The series stars Lorenzo Richelmy, Benedict Wong, Joan Chen, Chin Han, Zhu Zhu, »

With less than a month before its debut, Netflix has released the first full-length trailer for Marco Polo, its new series retelling the story of the real-life trader and world-traveler from the 13th century. “All my life, I've waited for the great adventurer to offer me a place at his side,” Polo (newcomer Lorenzo Richelmy) says at the start of the trailer, before we see the young Marco be given by his father to Mongol emperor Kublai Khan as tribute (Prometheus’ Benedict Wong plays Khan). “Am I a prisoner?” Polo asks in a later scene, to
