Prometheus - Scott Doesn't Want an Extended Cut

The Director Sees the Theatrical Version as his DC

It's almost a neverending story with Prometheus. And that's not because of its content. At first, there was a lot of speculation regarding the rating (PG-13 or R) and after that was settled, the rumor mill started circling a possibly longer cut for the home cinema releases. After all, the theatrical version does leave some question marks.

Even director Ridley Scott himself confirmed that he's working on a longer version with 20 minutes of additional footage for the DVD/BD releases. But when they were announced, there was no sight of a longer cut. Hopes for an Extended Cut remained, though, since Scott produced additional edits for some of his movies afterwards.

Quite a bummer is what BleedingCool reports. According to them, a Fox employee declared during a release party for the Prometheus Blu-ray that Scott refused to do an Extended Cut of his movie:

According to De Lauzirika, Scott was asked by Fox to make a new cut of the film for Blu-ray but refused, saying the theatrical version is his Director’s Cut. There are some 35 minutes of altered, extended and unseen scenes in the set, but not edited into the film because Scott didn’t want them in the film.

Who knows, after Prometheus managed to haul in a decent amount of money after a rather slow start, its sequel Paradise has been greenlit. Maybe that prompted Scott to scrap his plans for a longer versions since he now has another movie to fill the gaps he created with the first one. Heavy optimists can still hope for another version of the movie later on, maybe Scott will change his mind again. In the meantime, though, it's probably a good idea to check out the Blu-ray releases that have the theatrical version and massive bonus material on board.
