Eclipse Magazine had an interview with Ridley Scott, where the director has revealed that he intends to make a third science fiction film.
Ridley Scott directed the acclaimed sci-fi films Alien and Blade Runner, but hasn’t worked in the genre for over 25 years.
Scott has found the book that will bring him back to sci-fi:
“I am going to do one. 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.”
Are you working with Russell Crowe again on the Robin Hood film?Scott: I am, I just finished with him and Leonardo DiCaprio on Body Of Lies, which is now going to be called A House Of Lies. It is pretty good, I am very happy with it. In Nottingham Russell is the Robin Hood figure.
Your work with Russell Crowe has been brilliant.Scott: Well it makes life a lot easier if you know each other. You can cut the crap.
Russell Crowe has said you are very gifted and you obviously feel the same about him?Scott: I know that he is gifted. There are a lot of good actors out there but very few gifted ones.
