Plus future projects . . .
Age isn’t stopping director Ridley Scott (74). Next up for the Prometheus director is The Counselor starring Brad Pitt, the Blade Runner sequel, a western and a Biblical epic based on the life of Moses (no, really).
No word on The Forever War and Brave New World – the two projects science fiction fans would like to see Scott tackle the most – though.
Here’s a scene from the upcoming Blade Runner sequel in the director’s own words:
“There’ll be a vast farmland where there are no hedges or anything in sight, and it’s flat like the plains of—where’s the Great Plains in America? Kansas, where you can see for miles. And it’s dirt, but it’s being raked. On the horizon is a combine harvester which is futuristic with klieg lights, ‘cause it’s dawn. The harvester is as big as six houses. In the foreground is a small white clapboard hut with a porch as if it was from Grapes of Wrath. From the right comes a car, coming in about six feet off the ground being chased by a dog. And that’s the end of it, I’m not gonna tell you anything else.”
