One of the most bickered about movies of last year was Ridley Scott’s “Alien” pseudo-prequel “Prometheus,” a gaudy, lumbering hulk of a movie with more moving parts than your father’s Chevy, it was a film that posed just as many questions as it answered and whose elliptical nature allured as many moviegoers as it repelled. Well, it was still something of a hit, and it appears work is moving ahead on a sequel, at least according to “Prometheus” leading lady Noomi Rapace.
Catching up the actress as she did press rounds for “Dead Man Down,” when we asked where she was in the “Prometheus 2” process, she said, “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.”
We then asked about her thoughts on the reaction to the film – the endless speculation, theories, and essays that bloomed in the wake of “Prometheus.” She began by describing her experience on the first film. “I love working with Ridley. It was pure joy,” she said. “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.”
She then implied that the speculative angles are things she would like to see influence the sequel. “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,” Rapace explained. “And for me, if we do a second one, there are a lot of things to explore in there and to continue.” She added: ” I would love to do it.”
But, we had to ask, since original screenwriter Damon Lindelof (who took the original script, a more straightforward prequel, into all those loopy directions) isn’t coming back (he’s got an HBO series in the works and that super-mysterious Disney thing “Tomorrowland”), have they hired a writer? “You would have to ask someone at the studio about who the writer is.” We prodded — was she sure she can’t squeal? “No!” she chirped back.

He is one of the funniest guys I’ve ever been around. He’s so goddamn effortless that I want to punch him in the face. We instantly hit it off and in many ways he was my saving grace on the film because you have to sit around a lot. We had our dressing rooms next to each other. We’d pass each other’s rooms and be like kids in a dormitory saying: ‘What are you doing?’ We would just chat or listen to music.

Overall, it was a solid film. It didn’t blow me away, but the suspense was crazy good. I give it 7/10
I suspect Noomi will be doing most of the talking.
