Ridley Scott has revealed the eagerly-awaited sequel to 'Prometheus' will not feature any of the xenomorph aliens.

Ridley Scott has confirmed the sequel to 'Prometheus' will not feature any of the Xenomorph aliens.

The 76-year-old filmmaker says the classic HR Giger 'Alien' design will not appear in the much-anticipated sequel.

Speaking to Yahoo, Scott explained: "The beast is done, cooked."

He added: "I got lucky meeting Giger all those years ago. It's very hard to repeat that. I just happen to be the one who forced it through because they said it's obscene. They didn't want to do it and I said, 'I want to do it, it's fantastic'.

"But after four, I think it wears out a little bit. There's only so much snarling you can do. I think you've got to come back with something more interesting. And I think we've found the next step. I thought the engineers were quite a good start."

Scott's next release is 'Exodus: Gods and Kings', which he's described as the "biggest" movie he's ever made.

The film centres on Moses' hand in leading the Israelite slaves out of Egypt.

He explained: "Well, in terms of the metaphorical aspects, yes [this is the biggest project I've done]. Even budgetarily it's probably the biggest, yeah.

"But I didn't approach it as my biggest. I never do that. I always approach it from the point of view of the characters, of the story."
