While I was ultimately disappointed with Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, it certainly did conjure up an awful lot of discussion and interest in Scott’s planned sequel.  Star Noomi Rapace recently spoke with the director about the second film and revealed that work on the script is still underway.  We don’t know who the writer is at the moment, but we do know that Damon Lindelof won’t return to the franchise.  Hit the jump to see what Rapace  did manage to talk about.

noomi-rapace-prometheusIn a recent interview with The Playlist for her upcoming film Dead Man Down, Rapace gave a brief update on the status of the Prometheus sequel, saying:

“They’re working on the script. I met Ridley in London a couple of weeks ago. 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.”

Whatever the story ends up being, it sounds like Rapace had enough fun on the first experience that she’d love the opportunity to do it again:

“I love working with Ridley. It was pure joy. 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.”

Though Rapace didn’t know (or played innocent) about the identity of the screenwriters attached to the sequel, she did comment on the reactions to the original film:

“And it’s interesting because people, most people I’ve talked to who see the movie, see things that are quite different. Some people who see the movie many times and discover new things. There are all these religious aspects and there are very interesting conversations. 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.”

The Prometheus sequel is currently targeted for a 2014 or, more likely, 2015 release date, with both Rapace and Michael Fassbender contractually obligated to return if and when it moves forward.
