A long history of Ridley Scott's on-again off-again movie projects

4 December 2014 12:03 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Ridley Scott sure is picky for a director who has directed so many movies.  While famous for creating such visual feasts as "Alien," "Blade Runner," "Thelma & Louise," "Gladiator" and "Black Hawk Dawn," Scott has seemingly exited as many projects as he's seen through.  "Blade Runner 2" is merely the latest "will-he-or-won't-he?" moment in his career.  Recently, Scott dropped some hints about the long-delayed sequel to the 1982 film, but said he wouldn't be sitting in the director's chair. Now, he's backtracking, telling Yahoo, "I don’t know about [not directing 'Blade Runner 2'] yet." He added that the sequel could be his "most personal" film, and that the present script is "very, very good." It's certainly not the first time Scott has been ambiguous about taking on a directing gig. Here are some of the more interesting projects he never made: "I Am Legend" Scott got pretty far along on the pre-poduction process of the Richard Matheson adaptation in the '90s, »

Benedict Cumberbatch To Play 'Doctor Strange'

4 December 2014 10:22 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Marvel finally has its "Doctor Strange" with the announcement that Benedict Cumberbatch will play the master magician in an upcoming film.

The "Sherlock" star will play a neurosurgeon who is drawn into a world of mystic arts following a car accident, the company said in a Thursday news release.

He'll play the character in a 2016 film directed by "Sinister" helmer Scott Derrickson and penned by "Prometheus" co-writer Jon Spaihts.

"Stephen Strange's story requires an actor capable of great depth and sincerity," producer Kevin Feige said in a statement.

"In 2016, Benedict will show audiences what makes Doctor Strange such a unique and compelling character."

Doctor Strange plays a key role in the Marvel canon.

In the comic book series "The Infinity Gauntlet," he helps to marshal the forces of Earth to take on the wicked Titan Thanos, who has obtained total control over the universe with a glove containing six "Infinity Gems. »

Foreign Actors Forge Global Careers After Film Breakthroughs

4 December 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As any seasoned observer of the annual award circuit knows, the campaign trail for performers in foreign-language films is significantly rockier than it is for the rest. Of the 200 performances that secured an Oscar nomination in the past decade, a grand total of five are featured in films that aren’t principally in English. Even established crossover names have trouble gaining awards traction for subtitled fare: Witness Marion Cotillard, a rare foreign-language Oscar winner for “La Vie en Rose,” trailing this year’s perceived lead actress front-runners despite universal acclaim for her performance in “Two Days, One Night.”

For international newcomers, then, it’s that much harder to achieve such recognition — it’s been 10 long years since Colombian first-timer Catalina Sandino Moreno landed alongside Hilary Swank and Kate Winslet in the lead actress Oscar race for her sterling work in helmer-scribe Joshua Marston’s “Maria Full of Grace.”

Scott Still Uncertain On "Blade Runner 2"

3 December 2014 11:51 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

In recent years, interviews with Ridley Scott usually included a brief line or two in which he spoke about his plans to make a follow-up to his seminal 1982 sci-fi classic "Blade Runner".

That's why it came as a surprise last week when a trade story on the filmmaker seemed to indicate that he was handing over the reigns to someone else and would only produce. Today, in a new interview with Yahoo, he clears up the confusion to some extent by revealing that he hasn't made a decision as yet:

"I don't know about [not directing 'Blade Runner 2'] yet. The script is very, very good. Very good. I wouldn't know [what sort of director we'd want]. It's a hard one to track because it's a very personal piece of my work. ['Blade Runner'] may be one of the most personal pieces I did. I got so beaten up for it, I said I'd never try that again. But here we are. It's »

Jay Basu Recruited to Reboot Universal Monsters Movies

It’s rare that a studio trusts unknown talent with work on a major tentpole, as happened a few years ago when screenwriter Jon Spaihts was plucked straight off the Black List with no produced credits and handed Prometheus. Now it’s happening again as Deadline is reporting that Universal has tapped hot scribe Jay Basu with…

Final, final trailer for Exodus: Gods and Kings

1 December 2014 3:22 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last month 20th Century Fox released the “final” trailer for Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings, but it seems the marketing department got its maths wrong, as we now have another trailer for the biblical epic, which we’re assuming is the “final, final” trailer for the film. Until the next one, at least. Check it out below…

From acclaimed director Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Prometheus) comes the epic adventure Exodus: Gods and Kings, the story of one man’s daring courage to take on the might of an empire. Using state of the art visual effects and 3D immersion, Scott brings new life to the story of the defiant leader Moses (Christian Bale) as he rises up against the Egyptian Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton), setting 600,000 slaves on a monumental journey of escape from Egypt and its terrifying cycle of deadly plagues.

Why Ridley Scott Had To Cast White People As Egyptians, According To Ridley Scott

30 November 2014 9:17 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Ridley Scott has made his fair amount of press, both good and bad, in his long, illustrious career. Yet each film manages to spark some sort of new debate over the merits of his work, as well as the work itself. Prometheus still stands as a film that's divided sci-fi geeks onto two sides of the issue, with no end in sight. Yet in the case of Exodus: Gods And Kings, the controversy is a more typical, but nonetheless hot button sort of issue that's staring us down every day in Hollywood's PR machine: the lack of diversity in the casting of big budget epics such as this one. Variety sat down with Scott during his press rounds on his upcoming film, and they've put together a great piece about the man, his work ethic, and the praises of Exodus: Gods And Kings' stars.

Review: There's nothing divine about Ridley Scott's 'Exodus: Gods & Kings'

30 November 2014 9:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Ridley Scott has never been one to limit himself to dreaming small, and considering how powerful his best work has been, I wouldn't want him to suddenly change the way he does things. That ambition has led to some truly great movies, and I'm sure he's got at least one more great movie in the tank. He does not seem to be showing any signs of flagging energy, and considering he didn't really establish himself as a commercial filmmaker until he was 40, there's always something about him that feels like he's making up for lost time, like he's hungry, even now, even at this point in his considerable career. One of the things that I find most fascinating about Scott, though, is that when he makes a bad film, he doesn't do it by half-measures. He has made some truly terrible movies. Most recently, his "Robin Hood" was just a mess, »

Film Review: ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’

29 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“It’s not even that good a story,” Moses grumbles early on in Ridley Scott’s “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” shortly after learning of the mysterious events that transformed a lowly Hebrew slave into a full-blown prince of Egypt. It’s a sly, knowing wink from a filmmaker who clearly has a terrific tale on his hands, yet faces a bit of a challenge in selling it to a more cynical, less easily razzle-dazzled audience than those that greeted the biblical epics of yesteryear. What’s remarkable about Scott’s genuinely imposing Old Testament psychodrama is the degree to which he succeeds in conjuring a mighty and momentous spectacle — one that, for sheer astonishment, rivals any of the lavish visions of ancient times the director has given us — while turning his own skepticism into a potent source of moral and dramatic conflict.

Exodus: Gods And Kings Trailer Is Unleashed

28 November 2014 6:28 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ridley Scott doesn’t make small movies. Even Alien, back in 1979 – with its $11.5 million budget – was huge. If his creative output has steadily grown in scale over the years, his latest endeavour is, apparently, his biggest yet. While eager fans seem to have been discussing Exodus: Gods And Kings forever, a new trailer has finally been released that showcases exactly what is to be expected from Scott’s new epic.

Starring Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, John Turturro, Aaron Paul, Ben Mendelsohn, Sigourney Weaver and Ben Kingsley, Exodus: Gods And Kings is written by Adam Cooper and Bill Collage (Tower Heist), along with Jeffrey Caine (The Constant Gardener) and Steven Zaillian (American Gangster). While, admittedly, the title sounds as though Scott intends to kick-start a Bible-based cohesive cinematic universe of movie franchises (as studios are currently wont to do), the trailer itself is undeniably thrilling – provided you ignore the obligatory and »

Thanksgiving Trailer for Exodus: Gods And Kings Is Undeniably Epic

27 November 2014 5:43 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

20th Century Fox has released a new Thanksgiving trailer for Exodus: Gods and Kings to try and pull you out of that turkey coma.  The film is director Ridley Scott’s take on the Biblical story of Moses, and while the lack of diversity in the casting (and Scott’s doubling down on his choices) is troubling, there’s no denying that this new trailer is positively epic.  Scott has made an absolutely massive film here; one that harkens brings to mind the scale of Kingdom of Heaven and Gladiator.  The visuals continue to be kind of spectacular, so now the question is whether Scott can bring something new to the table emotionally for this age-old story. Check out the new Exodus: Gods and Kings trailer after the jump.  The film stars Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, John TurturroAaron PaulBen MendelsohnSigourney Weaver and Ben KingsleyExodus: Gods and Kings »

Ridley Scott Won't Direct "Blade Runner 2"

26 November 2014 6:20 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

In surprising news, filmmaker Ridley Scott has revealed that he is no longer attached to direct the in development "Blade Runner" follow-up that he's been developing for several years.

Speaking with Variety, Scott confirmed he is still on board to produce the film and confirms that production will take place sometime next year, but wouldn't go into details about why he is no longer taking the helm.

Scott and the original "Blade Runner" writer Hampton Fancher developed the script for the sequel, with "Green Lantern" scribe Michael Green coming onboard last Summer to polish it. Recently Scott reportedly indicated that the script is ready, and here he confirms Harrison Ford's Rick Deckard character is a part of the story:

"We talked at length about what it could be, and came up with a pretty strong three-act storyline, and it all makes sense in terms of how it relates to the first one. »
