Prometheus scribe Damon Lindelof has reacted to controversy around the sci-fi film’s upcoming sequel, saying that he left the project so it could “launch off in its own way”.
Good news, sci-fi fans: Damon Lindelof will not be writing the sequel to this year's dispiriting epic Prometheus.
In light of recent tragic events, the fact that Sir Ridley Scott has made any publicity appearances or statements at all speaks volumes about his consummate professionalism, for which he should be lauded and admired. Following the release of Prometheus on Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray 3D and DVD, Scott conducted a light mini-interview with Metro to discuss the film, and notably his plans for future projects.

The Prometheus Blu ray/DVD has hit our shelves now and fans that were hoping for an extended cut explaining a few of the plot holes have been left disappointed.
