Sir Ridley Scott certainly hasn't shied away from revealing new details about Alien: Paradise Lost during the press tour for The Martian, and in a new interview with Yahoo Movies, he shed more light on what we should expect from the recently retitled Prometheus sequel which is set to build towards the events of the original Alien"It continues after the last one, where Elizabeth Shaw [Noomi Rapace] says, 'I wanna go where they came from,'" the filmmaker explains. "And you’ve got Michael Fassbender in two parts, so she’ll slowly put him back together. They will go to the world of the Engineer." Asked to clarify if that means the duo will be arriving on the planet belonging to the Engingeers, he confirmed: "That’s where they’re going to go.

Scott went on to confirm that Ryan Gosling will indeed star in the follow-up alongside Harrison Ford and revealed that it was the script which managed to win over the latter. As for plot details, he had this to say about when the movie will be set. "It was 2017, so coming back it’ll be 2047, roughly. As young as you can play Ryan Gosling. He’s 34, but he looks 27 when he’s doing his push-ups. So maybe 2050." Oh, and Deckard was a definitely a Replicant, right? "Of course he’s a bloody Replicant! He’s going to have to admit it." But wait, don't they die after four years? "I’m not going to tell you. You’ll have to see the story. It’ll all make sense." Intriguing...
