“As you might expect, Alien‘s co-creator Ron Shusett wasn’t too impressed with Prometheus. Nor did he think much of the new Total Recall, a remake modelled on the adaptation he and Dan O’Bannon did of the original Philip K. Dick.

Here are a couple of quotes from Shusett’s new interview with The Daily Blam. Firstly, on the subject of Prometheus:

Prometheus was the opposite of Alien, which was a thriller and edge of your set nail-biter. [Prometheus] ended up being talky and pretentious. It tried to be ambitious but it couldn’t achieve that. It was bogged down with things they had to do that nobody cared about and it was a major disappointment to everybody…

…you can’t just say that we’ll tell you the reason why they wanted to kill us in the sequel to the prequel.”
