Rather than move closer to the classic 'Alien' franchise, it looks like the forthcoming sequel to 2012's 'Prometheus' will detach even further from the world of the world established in his 1979 original, even if the the ending for the first film gave fans a hint that a precursor to the Xenomorph was now on the loose.
Speaking to News Corporation's The Australian newspaper, director Ridley Scott has confirmed that we won't be seeing any Xenomorphs (Dragons) when the sequel hits screens, expected in 2016.
[It's] getting away from gods and dragons and shit. If I see one more dragon I'm going to shoot myself. Stop the dragons... with Prometheus 2, what I'm trying to do is reintroduce a fresher form of alien in the third act
Scott hasn't given an update on a firm release date for the film, the previously announced March 2016 date looks like it will get bumped back to later in the year, as production is not due to begin until the end of 2015. Star Noomi Rapace is set to return, as is Michael Fassbender.
