While Noomi has previously talked – without saying much really – about the film’s sequel, according to ScreenRush, Fox and director Ridley Scott have absolutely no idea how to continue the franchise with the planned trilogy. As the story goes, Damon Lindelof convinced Scott and Fox to ditch the planned ending of ‘Prometheus’ (which would have more neatly tied the film into the opening of ‘Alien’) for something different; something that would launch a brand new trilogy.
