Huhh. Pár rajongó most durván felszabadulhatott, lehet fel is kiáltottak “VÁLASZOK!!”.
Lehet, hogy ő csak átírta a Prometheust anno, és nem minden az ő fejéből pattant ki, de sok hibáért őt okolják többet is. Nyugi, azt mondja, hogy köze sem lesz a folytatáshoz. Röviden: felépítették a prequel univerzumot, hiszen még nagyon messze van a Nostromo kaland, van hely bőven másnak. Így a Prometheus 2 is különálló film, nem pedig “Alien”. Erről beszéltek Ridley Scottal még a Prometheus bemutatója előtt, de amikor a tényleges folytatás került volna szóba, ismerve a közönség reakcióját a prequelre, addigra Lindelof már nem ért rá, hiszen filmet ír Brad Birdnek, el volt foglalva a Star Trek 2-vel, és a tv-be is készít valamit. Nem fért bele.
Ridley [Scott] and I talked at great length during the story process of the first movie about what subsequent movies would be if Prometheus were to be successful. And I think that the movie ended in a very specific way that hinted at, or strongly implied that there were going to be continuing adventures worthy of writing stories. What those stories would be would not necessarily usurp or transcend the ‘Alien’ franchise as we saw it because we know that the Nostromo hasn’t come along yet. So the idea was to set up a universe that… Is it a prequel? Okay. If that’s what we want to call it, sure. But the sequel to this movie is not Alien. The sequel to this movie is this other thing.
So Ridley and I talked about what that other thing might be, and he was excited about doing it. But then I think what ended up happening was that the movie came out, and there was a reaction to the movie. And I got really wrapped up in [‘Star Trek Into Darkness’] and really wrapped up in this movie that I’m producing and writing with Brad Bird. And I have a TV project that I was really passionate about. Ridley and I had a meeting after Prometheus came out where we started talking again about where this journey would go. And in that meeting I said to him, unfortunately, before he could ask me and go through the discomfort of whether he was going to ask me or not… It’s sort of like having a date where you’re letting the other person know, ‘I’m in another relationship.’ So I can’t tell you that he asked me and I said no. But I did communicate to him that I was working on these other things.
