Fox Wanted Extended Prometheus Blu-ray, Ridley Scott Said No

I’m at the big press day for the Prometheus DVD and Blu-ray and have just seen Charles De Lauzirika present some samples from the supplements. As well as intriguing deleted scenes, there’s five hours of documentary material and this stuff looks brilliant – candid, insightful and polished. Reason enough to buy the set, even. Can’t wait to get stuck into it.

De Lauzirika has taken some questions from the crowd and was asked, perhaps inevitably, where Ridley Scott’s Directors Cut has gotten to.

Short answer: it’s gotten to cinemas.

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.

Is this the end of this ongoing saga? Will rumours of an extended version be finally laid to rest? Probably not. See, Ridley Scott has often produced alternative edits which aren’t his preferred cut, and there’s no reason to assume he won’t relent again – just apparently not any time soon…
