Ridley Scott Hints Xenomorphs Won’t Be Part of ‘Prometheus 2;’ Talks ‘Blade Runner 2′

25 September 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Ridley Scott has one of the best problems you can have in Hollywood. He’s got a number of projects in development that he desperately wants to make, and which financiers want to fund. The problem is, he’s just one man, and the second he commits to a project, others get moved back. After releasing Prometheus in […]

Prometheus 2 will not feature xenomorph aliens, says Ridley Scott

25 September 2014 2:34 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ridley Scott has said that the sequel to Prometheus will not feature any of the iconic xenomorph aliens.

The veteran filmmaker revealed that he is retiring Hr Giger's classic Alien design for the sequel.

"The beast is done, cooked," Scott told Yahoo.

"I got lucky meeting Giger all those years ago. It's very hard to repeat that. I just happen to be the one who forced it through because they said it's obscene. They didn't want to do it and I said, 'I want to do it, it's fantastic'.

"But 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."

2012's Prometheus revealed the origin of the xenomorph aliens.

Scott's next release will be Exodus: Gods and Kings. »

Ridley Scott says Xenomorphs will not appear in Prometheus sequel

25 September 2014 12:55 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Although The Martian starring Matt Damon will be Ridley Scott's next film, he's still planning on directing sequels to Blade Runner and Prometheus. In an interview with Yahoo! UK, Scott gave an update on the script for Prometheus 2, and says he's looking forward to doing another movie. Right now, as we speak, it’s being written. I’ve had 15 drafts evolving. I definitely want to do that again because I really enjoyed doing Prometheus. Those 15 »

Ridley Scott talks Blade Runner 2 and Prometheus 2

24 September 2014 11:59 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As Ridley Scott puts the finishing touches to his biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings and gears up to go into production on The Martian, the British filmmaker has taken a moment to provide a brief update on the two big sequels on his upcoming slate in Blade Runner 2 and Prometheus 2 during an interview with Yahoo Movies…

“We met the night before he had the accident,” says Scott, referring to his Blade Runner star Harrison Ford, who of course broke his leg earlier in the year on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII. “It’s on the charts. I can’t say when that would be yet because of his thing with Star Wars. It’s a sequel – it’s what happens next. It’s quite surprisingly clever.”

As for Prometheus 2, Scott went on to rule out an appearance from the Xenomorph – the iconic monster from his »

Ridley Scott Says No Xenomorphs For Prometheus Sequel

24 September 2014 10:35 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Even as he finishes Exodus: Gods And Kings and dives deep into pre-production on The Martian, Ridley Scott can’t get away from questions about his two most anticipated upcoming projects, the sequels to Prometheus and Blade Runner. Talking with Yahoo about the former, he has confirmed his intention to keep recognizable toothy Xenomorphs out of this stage of the Alien story.“The beast is done. Cooked,” he says. “I got lucky meeting Giger all those years ago. It’s very hard to repeat that. I just happen to be the one who forced it through because they said it’s obscene. They didn’t want to do it and I said, ‘I want to do it, it’s fantastic’. But after four, I think it wears out a little bit. There’s only so much snarling you can do.

Ridley Scott: no xenomorphs for Prometheus 2

24 September 2014 10:25 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

H R Giger's xenomorphs will remain notable by their absence in Prometheus 2...

Whilst his immediate attention is on his soon-to-shoot sci-fi movie The Martian, and on promoting his upcoming film Exodus: Gods And Kings, there are many other plates that director Sir Ridley Scott is spinning.

One of them is Prometheus 2, which we're expecting to land at some point in 2016. Yahoo! asked him about it, in relation to the mixture of responses - not always very positive - to the original film. Did he regret leaving out the iconic xenomorphs from the Alien movies, for instance?

No, would be the answer. "The beast is done. Cooked", he said. "I got lucky meeting Giger all those years ago. It's very hard to repeat that. I just happen to be the one who forced it through because they said it's obscene. They didn't want to do it, and I said I want to do it, »

Global Showbiz Briefs: Talpa Global & A Cappella Team On ‘The Big Picture’ Rights; ‘Mammon’ Sells To Multiple Territories; More

24 September 2014 9:30 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

In a rare deal for a third-party format, Talpa Global will partner with Israel’s A Cappella to handle the worldwide distribution rights to game show The Big Picture. Created by TV host and mentalist Nimrod Harel and A Cappella, The Big Picture sees studio contestants given a shot at winning $1M by correctly answering 12 picture-based questions. If the studio player is unsure, they can enlist help from a connected viewer playing along in real time with the Big Picture app. At that moment, the connected player will have their image projected on the TV screen, play along via the technology and also have a shot at winning a substantial amount of the studio player’s total prize money. A budget of $1M went toward developing and producing an English-language Big Picture pilot, which A Cappella’s Einat Shamir and Tal Shaked shopped at Mip-tv in April.

Ridley Scott Says Prometheus 2 Won't Feature Xenomorphs

24 September 2014 7:52 PM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

While promoting his "Exodus: Gods and Kings," director Ridley Scott spoke about the upcoming "Prometheus" sequel, confirming that xenomorphs won't be making an appearance. He said: "The beast is done. Cooked. I got lucky meeting H.R. Giger all those years ago. It's very hard to repeat that. I just happen to be the one who forced it through because they said it's obscene. They didn't want to do it and I said, 'I want to do it, it's fantastic'.

Ridley Scott says 'Prometheus 2' will be xenomorph-free: 'The beast is done'

24 September 2014 7:28 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Were you hoping to see some xenomorphs pop up in "Prometheus 2"? Sorry to burst your bubble. “The beast is done. Cooked,” director Ridley Scott told Yahoo! News when asked whether the iconic alien monsters would be showing up in the planned sequel. “I got lucky meeting [xenomorph designer] H.R. Giger all those years ago. It’s very hard to repeat that. I just happen to be the one who forced it through because they said it’s obscene. They didn’t want to do it and I said, ‘I want to do it, it’s fantastic’.

No Xenomorphs To Appear In "Prometheus 2"

24 September 2014 5:05 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Still upset that the "Alien" prequel "Prometheus" didn't show any of the original xenomorphs? Don't expect the upcoming sequel to be any more enlightening.

Ridley Scott, who directed "Prometheus" and is slated to helm the follow-up once he wraps "The Martian," tells Yahoo UK that the upcoming "Prometheus" sequel will not include any of the acid-dripping beasties:

"The beast is done. Cooked. I got lucky meeting H.R. Giger all those years ago. It's very hard to repeat that. I just happen to be the one who forced it through because they said it's obscene. They didn't want to do it and I said, 'I want to do it, it's fantastic'

Ridley Scott Gives New Details On 'Prometheus' And 'Blade Runner' Sequels

24 September 2014 4:24 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Ridley Scott freely gave some updates on two of his anticipated sequels, Prometheus 2 and Blade Runner 2. The new details aren't anything out of this world, but at the very least they offer some hope/evidence that Scott is still working on them.

Though neither of said sequels will be Scott's next film – that'll be The Martian, starring Matt Damon – Scott revealed that Prometheus 2 is being written "as we speak."

"I've had 15 drafts evolving. I definitely want to do that again because I really enjoyed doing Prometheus."

(I sense a slight bit of doubt in his tone, but that might just be me losing hope. What do you guys think?) Scott also talked about the reaction to Prometheus and the aliens:

“The beast is done. Cooked,” he says simply. “I got lucky meeting Giger all those years ago. It’s very hard to repeat that. I just happen to »

'Prometheus 2' Will Not Feature Classic 'Alien' Xenomorphs

24 September 2014 3:29 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Those disappointed that Prometheus didn't feature the original Xenomorphs from the classic sci-fi horror thriller Alien aren't going to be any happier with the upcoming sequel Prometheus 2. Director Ridley Scott has officially stated that the legendary monsters won't be making in appearance in his follow-up.

Speaking with Yahoo UK in anticipation of his upcoming period epic Exodus: Gods and Kings, Ridley Scott made it clear that he is done using this particular acid-spewing extraterrestrial:

"The beast is done. Cooked. I got lucky meeting H.R. Giger all those years ago. It's very hard to repeat that. I just happen to be the one who forced it through because they said it's obscene. They didn't want to do it and I said, 'I want to do it, it's fantastic'. But after four (he has conveniently forgotten the 'AvP' movies), I think it wears out a little bit. There's only »

‘Prometheus 2′ Script Update; Ridley Scott Says No More Xenomorphs

24 September 2014 2:31 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Ridley Scott, at this point in time, is far along into pre-production on the Matt Damon-headlined Mars survival adventure The Martian (preparing for release in fall 2015), and has screenplays for both Blade Runner 2 and Prometheus 2 being cooked up. Scott most recently said he expects to begin shooting the Blade Runner sequel after he finishes The Martian, but that doesn’t mean the Prometheus followup has stopped moving forward.

On the contrary, Scott informed Yahoo! Movies UK that a Prometheus sequel is something that he’s very much looking forward to making – and thus, he is keeping the screenplay writing process chugging along at a steady pace.

“Right now, as we speak, it’s being written. I’ve had 15 ...

Xenomorphs Won't Be In Prometheus Sequel

24 September 2014 11:24 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Ridley Scott ("Matchstick Men") is working on sequels to Blade Runner and Prometheus. Though neither of them will be his next film, as he is currently working on The Martian. Once that film is complete he will then begin work on Blade Runner 2, which will feature the return of Harrison Ford. By the time Scott finally gets to Prometheus 2 I can't help but wonder how much interest will remain. And those that are interested, will they still be when they find out that the Xenomorphs aren't in it? “The beast is done. Cooked,” Ridley Scott says of the Xenomorphs “I got lucky meeting Giger all those years ago. It’s very hard to repeat that. I just happen to be the one who forced it through because they said it’s obscene. They didn’t want to do it and I said, ‘I want to do it, it’s »

Ridley Scott Gives Updates on Blade Runner and Prometheus Sequels

24 September 2014 11:10 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Director Ridley Scott is currently preparing to direct his two big sci-fi fi sequels, Blade Runner 2 and Prometheus 2. While speaking to Yahoo about his upcoming movie, Exodus: Gods and Kings, he also offered an update on the other two projects.

The last we heard on Blade Runner 2 was that the director said the script was "damn good," and that he would shoot the film when he's done with The Martian. Here's what he had to say in his most recent interview:

"It’s on the charts, can’t say when that would be yet, because of [Ford’s] thing with ‘Star Wars’. It’s a sequel – it’s what happens next. It’s quite surprisingly clever."

I like that he's excited about doing this sequel, and I really hope that it turns out as good as he is making it out to be. He went on to give a more detailed »

Ridley Scott Says You Won’t See Any Aliens In Prometheus 2

24 September 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Currently hard at work doing post-production on Exodus: Gods And Kings, the biblical epic starring Christian Bale, Ridley Scott’s probably not heading off afterwards to a remote tropical island for a much-needed vacation. Nope, there’s no time for that. His crowded slate is brimming with a ton of exciting projects – The Martian, Blade Runner 2 and Prometheus 2.

The first Prometheus, released in 2012 divided critics and fans on account of not being everything everyone wanted it to be! While there’s definitely moments that require deeper investigation to understand (the lack of brainpower in a couple of scientists), it’s not the disaster that so many xenomorph die-hards claim it is.

Speaking to Yahoo!, the British director gave an update on the status of the sequel to the Alien prequel. The most interesting tidbit negated rumours afloat since late last year, with regards to the status of the script. »

Soda takes The Goob for UK

24 September 2014 5:16 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

British drama debuted at Venice Days.

Soda Pictures has acquired UK rights to The Goob, the debut feature from writer-director Guy Myhill.

The deal was negotiated between Soda Pictures’ MD Edward Fletcher and producers Mike Elliott and Lee Groombridge of Emu Films.

The cast includes Sean Harris (Prometheus), Sienna Guilleroy (Luther), Hannah Spearritt (Primeval) and newcomer Liam Walpole.

The coming-of-age story centres on 16-year-old Goob Taylor (Walpole) in Norfolk. He helps his mother run a transport cafe and harvests the surrounding pumpkin fields. But when she starts a relationship with a stock car driver (Harris), Goob becomes an unwelcome side thought. But when exotic pumpkin picker Eva arrives, Goob dreams of a better life, fuelled by her flirtatious comments.

The Goob received its world premiere last month in Venice. It is up for the Golden Hitchcock at the 25th Dinard British Film Festival and will feature in the First Feature Competition at the BFI London Film Festival »

This is the Part I Really Like: Top ten movie-in-movie moments

23 September 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Sometimes it’s just a joke, sometimes it has hidden meaning, and sometimes it’s simply the director showing off their eclectic taste in all things celluloid (read: Quentin Tarantino). But one thing’s for sure: the annals of cinema history are littered with movie-in-movie moments.

The granddaddy of movie-in-movie moments comes from The Shawshank Redemption – released twenty years ago today. So in honour of its anniversary, we thought we’d go all “meta” by looking back at ten of the most memorable movie-in-movie moments to grace the multiplex.

Gilda (1946) in The Shawshank Redemption (1994)

Though it’s probably a little bit cruel to show prison inmates Rita Hayworth at her finest, this 40’s classic plays a prominent role in the film’s plot as Andy later uses a poster from the 1946 noir to cover the entrance to the tunnel that he’s painstakingly carved out of the prison walls.

Fargo Writer to Script a Universal Monster Movie

20 September 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The screenwriter of the amazing Fargo series on FX, Noah Hawley, is apparently writing one of Universal Picture's monster horror films. There are no details on which monster he'll be working on. In Deadline's report, it just says, “Hawley, while readying another season of Fargo, is separately scripting an untitled project at Universal that will be part of that studio’s classic monster franchise push.”

The studio is hoping to build a cinematic universe with these monsters. Alex Kurtzman and Chris Morgan are currently developing a plan to relaunch the studio’s classic monsters starting with the Mummy, which Jon Spaihts (Prometheus) wrote for Kurtzman to direct. That movie will be released on June 24th, 2016. According to Kurtzman, some of the monsters will get their own movie, but other monsters will appear in other films, as secondary characters. They just need to figure out how to balance that out.
