Ridley Scott Goes Back to the Basics
Ridley Scott, who directed some of the biggest, kick ass horror and sci-fi films ever, including BLADE RUNNER, ALIEN, and PROMETHEUS, is going back to the basics. According to PerezHilton.com (yeah I know; it hurts to even write that website down), Scott will be producing six low-budget films over the next three years:
Fans of the horror, thriller and science fiction genres should be excited because that’s exactly the kind of movies his company, along with Orchard Media and Focus Features International, plan on making.
Here’s how Scott, himself, explains it:
“Our target is to create a structure that enables filmmakers to push boundaries and to excite audiences. Our proposed model of filmmaking allows us to give directors the opportunity to really innovate through narrative, production techniques and distribution strategies.”
i’m going to assume that even though Scott’s role will be as producer, he hopefully won’t be going the “found footage ghost story” route. Right? RIGHT!!!
