Ridley Scott updates

Eclipse Magazine spoke to Ridley Scott and pumped him for information both on his return to the sci-fi genre, and his adaptation of Blood Meridian.

On the subject of not having made a science-fiction film since BLADE RUNNER and ALIEN:

"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." What is the book? I've heard a bunch of possibilities thrown around, with "Brave New World" sounding the most likely, but please, schmoes, please: speculate!

As for "Blood Meridian"?

"We got it down as a screenplay and the problem is that it is so savage. But that’s what it is. If you did it properly it would be an X-certificate. But you can’t apologise for the violence and you can’t quantify the violence and you shouldn’t try to explain the violence. It is what it is…an exercise in brutality, savagery and violence. For the most part it is probably relatively accurate. It shows the flipside to Dances With Wolves of how the United States was probably taken. It was taken by the throat."

You can check out the rest of the interview out HERE. You can check out Kate Beckinsale in a see-through dress HERE. Why? Because I just don't believe that a story about Ridley Scott making a movie about people hunting for Indian scalps can't be sexy.
Extra Tidbit: Michael Caine found "the most beautiful woman he had ever seen" when Ridley Scott directed a Maxwell House commercial featuring this chick Shakira Caine. They've been married since 1973.
