Sacrificial Engineer in Ridley Scott's "Prometheus"

“..hey guys, this black goo thing seems to be doing different things every time, how do you know my hair will grow back if I drink it?”

Not really a surprise to anyone who saw the movie, but last week Twentieth Century Fox has officially confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter  that the studio is going ahead with “Prometheus” sequel. And this time around most of the pieces of the puzzle seem to be in the right place – Ridley Scott is actively developing the follow-up, Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace are already contracted to return. But most importantly, the article hinted that “new writers are being approached for this next installment because Prometheus co-writer Damon Lindelof may not be available.” So there we have it – here is to the hope that the studio will absolutely make sure Lindelof is otherwise engaged and the man responsible for turning the plot of an absolute visual masterpiece into complete drivel has nothing to do with Alien adjacent universe ever again. I’ll drink to that!

I’m rather happy Fassbender is returning in the sequel as the Peter O’Toole admiring artificial intelligence, although the cheeky part of me still wants to ask – if you had any say in what the sequel was about – what would you rather want Vickers miraculously survive the whole comical croissant straight line outrun attempt, and now face Deacon on LV-426 in a classic female protagonist vs evil  xenomorph alone-in-enclosed-spaces horror slasher, or would you rather spend three hours following Dr. Shaw with droid’s head in a bag sobbing every few minutes in all distant  corners of the universe while looking for opportunity to ask Mala’kaks her eternal vagina monologues question – “why do you hate me?”)

Ridley Scott points at the guy who lost half the "Prometheus" script

“I know the script doesn’t make sense Noomi, but this Lindelof guy over there says we are going to have 22 episodes to bridge it with the original Alien”

Blu-Ray.com reports preliminary details about French triple disc “Prometheus” BluRay release planned for October 3rd. The list of extras includes 18 minutes of viral videos, 120 minute long “Making of” collection and 15 minutes (yes, just 15 minutes) of deleted and alternate scenes.

Our own exclusive, unofficial info hints that the US version will include 4th disk with recorded audio message from script writer Damon Lindelof repeatedly asking Alien fans for forgiveness in form of “Lost” distress radio call, every minute until media runs out of space.
