"Prometheus" sequel is not dead yet, Noomi Rapace has confirmed. The actress playing Elizabeth Shaw in the much-bickered-about 2012 sci-fi film brings the good news to fans of the Ridley Scott-created tale that the follow-up project is still ongoing and that the script is already worked on.
To The Playlist, Noomi admits that she's met with Ridley to discuss the sequel. "They're working on the script. I met Ridley in London a couple of weeks ago," she spills. "I would love to work with him again and I know that he would like to do another one. It's just like we need to find the right story. I hope we will."
As the Swedish actress reveals that the script is in the works, questions on whether the studio has already found a new writer to replace Damon Lindelof arise. Noomi, however, keeps her lips sealed on the subject by stating, "You would have to ask someone at the studio about who the writer is." When urged further to reveal the new writer, she insists, "No!"
Though admitting she still doesn't know the logline of the sequel, Noomi says she's interested in people's speculative angles that could influence the sequel. "It's interesting because people, most people I've talked to who see the movie, see things that are quite different," she says. "Some people sho see the movie many times and discover new things."
"There are all these religious aspects and there are very interesting conversations," she explains futher. "And for me, if we do a second one, there are a lot of things to explore in there and to continue. I would love to do it."
Apart from discussing the untitled Prometheus sequel, Noomi gushes that she loves working with Ridley. "It was pure joy," she says. "It was really hard work sometimes. My body was a complete mess - I had bruises and cuts and emotionally I was a bit slammed. But being in his world and his universe was such an amazing experience."
The sequel is projected to be released sometime in 2014 or 2015. Noomi is expected to return alongside Michael Fassbender, who played android David in the first film.
