We don’t mind waiting.
Oscar-nominated director Ridley Scott came clean recently about his intentions for a sequel.
The sci-fi hit that was equal parts action and philosophy AND it slaughtered so many of its main characters, we were honestly curious how he could approach it.
Worry not! The 74 year-old director has a plan.
"From the very beginning, I was working from a premise that lent itself to a sequel… I really don't want to meet God in the first one. I want to leave it open to [Noomi Rapace's character Dr Elizabeth Shaw] saying, 'I don't want to go back to where I came from. I want to go where they came from'.”
Okay, but why name it Paradise?
"I'd love to explore where [Dr Shaw] goes next and what does she do when she gets there, because if it is paradise, paradise cannot be what you think it is. Paradise has a connotation of being extremely sinister and ominous."
We wish some other actors from the original could return but barring flashbacks, resurrections, or the emergence of identical twins —Charlize Theron, Idris Elba, and Guy Pearce will watch from the sidelines!!
