Ridley Scott Confirms There Will Be No ‘Alien’ in ‘Prometheus 2’

Ridley Scott confirmed in an interview with Yahoo that the famous creature from the "Alien" film franchise will not make an appearance in "Prometheus 2."

The alien, dubbed by fans as the Xenomorph, was designed by the late Swiss surrealist artist H.R. Giger for the first "Alien" film in 1979.

The appearance of the Xenomorph in the first "Prometheus" film was taken by fans as a clear indicator that the movie is deeply connected to Scott's series sci-fi horror projects.

In the last scene of "Prometheus," a creature that looks strikingly similar to the Xenomorph bursts out of the infected Engineer's chest. This scene gave the impression that the sequel will largely feature the famous alien race, Tech Times reported.

However, according to the director, he is done working with Xenomorphs.

"The beast is done. Cooked," he said. "I got lucky meeting Giger all those years ago. It's very hard to repeat that. I just happen to be the one who forced it through because they said it's obscene. They didn't want to do it and I said, 'I want to do it, it's fantastic.'"

"But after four [movies], I think it wears out a little bit," he added. "There's only so much snarling you can do."

Scott then mentioned that for the "Prometheus" series, he plans to introduce a new creature to moviegoers.

"I think you've got to come back with something more interesting," he said. "And I think we've found the next step. I thought the Engineers were quite a good start."

As for the development of "Prometheus 2," Scott noted that he is currently working on its draft. He also said the second film will begin where the first one left off, according to The Guardian.

It will show the journey of Noomi Rapace's Elizabeth Shaw and the cyborg head of Michael Fassbender's David as they travel to the Engineers' home planet.

"You'll probably have to go with Elizabeth Shaw and David - without his head," Scott said. "Find out how he gets his head back on."
