Director Sir Ridley Scott will be 75 years old in November and he’s looking for answers. There is no doubt that Scott has earned his success and even a knighthood with iconic films such as ‘Alien’, ‘Blade Runner’ and ‘Gladiator’. Scott could drive around a car made out of gold if he wanted to but it’s obvious that he’s looking beyond the triumphs, money and accolades. He’s looking for the deeper meaning to life and that search begins in ‘Prometheus’.
Director Ridley Scott must going through a period of nostalgia ahead of the release of ‘Prometheus’ that sees the filmmaker revisit the world of his 1979 film ‘Alien’.
For a long time there have been rumours that buoyed by working on ‘Prometheus’, Scott has been playing with the idea of returning to the ‘Blade Runner’ universe, and last year Alcon Entertainment confirmed that Scott would produce and direct a follow up to the sci-fi classic (Collider story here).
Collider via an official statement have confirmed the shape the new film will take as well as who might be working on the project as screenwriter.
