The Prometheus 2 and Blade Runner Sequels are ready to rumble. And director Ridley Scott has got everything covered.

Ridley Scott, the famous director, has apprehensions that his meeting with Harrison Ford the night before his accident may have contributed to the mishap in some way. 

“We met the night before he had the accident,” Scott told Yahoo! Movies UK, “so I hope I had nothing to do with it.”

He was with the star and the two discussed the sequel to the 1982 sci-fi film in which Harrison has such a prominent role. Ford has panache for Star Wars. Scott discussed his newest venture titled Exodus: Gods and Kings. 

“It’s on the charts,” he said. “I can’t say when that would be yet, because of [Ford’s] thing with ‘Star Wars’. It’s a sequel – it’s what happens next. It’s quite surprisingly clever.”

Christian Bale will be playing the role of Moses in the movie which is about that ancient bygone Old Testament era. As for the sequels, they include in their purview The Martian and the second shift of Prometheus. Over a dozen drafts have been in the works as far as the evolution of Prometheus 2 is concerned.

“Right now, as we speak, it’s being written,” he said. “I’ve had 15 drafts evolving. I definitely want to do that again because I really enjoyed doing ‘Prometheus’.”

The project is nearly wrapped up and in its final stages. As for the monsters on board the movie, you should expect the unexpected like people without their heads.  

However, unlike the Alien Series, Prometheus 2 will not have that level of monstrosity and ugly xenophobic reactions in its special effects. Alien took the grossness factor way out of line and Prometheus 2 will be milder stuff. 

“The beast is done. Cooked. 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,” Scott said.

“They didn’t want to do it and I said, ‘I want to do it, it’s fantastic’. But after four (he has conveniently forgotten the ‘AvP’ movies), I think it wears out a little bit. There’s only so much snarling you can do. I think you’ve got to come back with something more interesting. And I think we’ve found the next step. I thought the Engineers were quite a good start.”

The Xenomorphs on board the film will be few and far between. There were older monsters for the previous movies of a bygone era and now new monsters will have to be created for the novel stuff that today’s audiences will get to enjoy. 

The thrill lies in rearranging and thus creating completely new ensembles of fantasy creatures from the underground rather like deconstructing LEGO blocks. 

Ultimately the sequels to both Prometheus and Blade Runner are the sort of Greatest Shows on Earth that will gather quite a lot of applause from diverse audiences worldwide. They are truly sources that take the individuals in the darkened cinema theaters into an alternative universe where anything goes. 

And at the end of the experience, the individual emerges into the light of day rubbing his eyes and is a transformed and different person (psychologically) from what he was when he entered the cinema for the first time. 

‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ will hit theaters on 26 December, 2014 while Prometheus 2 is set to release in 2016.
