Ridley Scott will tie his Prometheus story back into Alien eventually
It's going to take a bit of patience, but one day, sometime down the line, Ridley Scott is going to bring his PROMETHEUS story arc together with ALIEN. Once that happens, I'm sure someone will make the claim that it was all worth it, but we're still talking at least two PROMETHEUS films before we even come close to getting there.
In a recent interview, Scott was asked about if these two parallel stories will ever intersect, and his answer...
Yes, but it wont be in the next one. It will be in the one after this one or maybe even a fourth film before we get back into the Alien franchise The whole point of it is to explain the Alien franchise and to explain the how and why of the creation of the Alien itself. I always thought of the Alien as kind of a piece of bacterial warfare. I always thought that that original ship, which I call the Croissant, was a battleship, holding these biomechanoid creatures that were all about destruction.
Are you serious...?! Three... maybe four PROMETHEUS films...?! I know there are some who are game for the sequel Scott is planning to shoot in 2016, but, if you're in that camp, do you really have the stomach for a third or a fourth, just to get to the point where everything all comes full circle? That sounds like a tall task to me, and one I don't know I'm willing to embark on. But good luck to you if you are. Looks like you've got a long road ahead of you.
