It looks like Ridey will return to the realm of Science Fiction (where his star brightly shines). We get the scoop from our friends at comingsoon:
Eclipse Magazine talked to Blade Runner and Alien director Ridley Scott, who says he’s finally ready to go back to sci-fi:
I waited for a book for 20 years and I have got the book. I am not going to tell you what the book is but that film is going to probably be written within the next month. That will definitely be what I do next after Nottingham, the Robin Hood film that I am doing now in England.
I love some of Ridley Scott’s films very much. Others I consider to be big bags of waste. Very seldom do I see a Ridley Scott film that is just alright. Ridley and I have little or no middle ground.
I have no idea what this film will be about, nor the book that will serve as its source – but I am pleased to see Ridley return to Sci Fi land.
