According to the source, Ridley Scott, who is still set to direct Prometheus 2 has apparently met many times with an English actor named Rik Barnett for an undisclosed role in Prometheus 2. The source adds that Rik’s potential role could be connected to Noomi Rapace’s character (Elizabeth Shaw).
Our source adds that until the script is finalized, anything is possible and nothing is final, but they do hint at the strong possibility that Rik Barnett will have some kind of role in Prometheus 2. The fact that Ridley is reportedly personally meeting with this actor on multiple occasions, suggests that his role will not be a minor one and with the hint that his role could relate to Rapace’s Elizabeth Shaw adds further speculation!
“The thing about Prometheus was it was a rewrite. Jon Spaihts wrote a script and I rewrote it. And still it was a year of my life that I spent on Prometheus, kind of all in. The idea of building a sequel to it—from the ground up this time—with Ridley is tremendously exciting. But at the same time, I was like, “Well that’s probably going to be two years of my life.” I can’t do what J.J. [Abrams] does. I don’t have the capability. I’m usually very single-minded creatively. I can only be working on one thing at a time. So I said to him, “I really don’t think I could start working on this movie until I do this other stuff. And I don’t know when the other stuff is going to be done.” And he was like, “Well, okay, it’s not like I asked you anyways.” He and I are on excellent terms and it was a dream come true to work with him. But much to the delight of all the fanboys, I don’t see myself being involved in Prometheus-er.”
Just read an article about Ridley returning to work on The Counselor after Tony’s tragic death. According to this article the buzz around Hollywood is that Scott will do Blade Runner after The Counselor and is only listed as a producer for Prometheus 2.
This is so complicated and such a hard…
Along with the brand new site at - you’re on it right now - http://weylandinvestors.com - we have launched a new Twitter account at @weylandinvestor (the 15-character username limit didn’t allow the ‘s’ in ‘investors’ unfortunately), so go ahead and give it a follow!
This site has been quiet for a while, so let’s update with the latest news regarding Prometheus:
- The special features of the upcoming DVD/Blu-ray release have been classified by the BBFC, including the brand new viral video Transmission, and a special feature on the early ‘leaked’ script, titled The Case of the Fanfic Fake. More information at The Weyland Chronicles.
- And the big one - a sequel to Prometheus has been confirmed to be in-development by 20th Century Fox in an statement to The Hollywood Reporter.
Fox confirms to THR that Scott and the studio actively are pushing ahead with a follow-up (stars Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace are signed) and are talking to new writers because Prometheus co-scribe Damon Lindelof might not be available. “Ridley is incredibly excited about the movie, but we have to get it right. We can’t rush it,” says Fox president of production Emma Watts, who also has overseen the successful reboots of the X-Men and Planet of the Apes franchises. A Prometheus sequel would be released in 2014 or 2015.
And as we know, the mysterious date of 10.11.12, in case you haven’t noticed, is the start date of the New York Comic-Con, so closer to the time this site will bring you more details regarding what might be going down…
So, all the best, and enjoy!
Your fellow Investor, out.
Just knocked this one together. The font in this teaser banner is Gotham Book which is used for the main title in PROMETHEUS.
