Ridley Scott is arguably one of the best Directors ever. If there is a list of the greatest directors ever then surely he should be on there. Here’s a small recap on all the epic movies his given us:

Following his commercial breakthrough with Alien (1979), his best-known works are sci-fi classic Blade Runner (1982), Thelma & Louise (1991), best picture Oscar-winner Gladiator (2000), Black Hawk Down (2001), Matchstick Men (2003), Kingdom of Heaven (2005), American Gangster(2007), Robin Hood (2010) and Prometheus (2012). – Wikipedia

Even if he stopped with Alien, he would still be a unanimous favourite with us. Yes, clearly we are huge Alien fans. Notice the A-class actors attached to every movie he is directing next, that alone is enough indication of the level of respect he’s earned as a director. Here’s a look at 5 Movies Ridley Scott Will Direct Next:

Bladerunner is and will remain one of the best Sci-Fi movies ever. Ridley Scott returns to direct a follow up to his 1982 science fiction classic Blade Runner for Warner Bros-based Alcon Entertainment. Original screenwriter Hampton Fancher will write the sequel which will feature a female protagonist.

 

5. Galyntine (TV)

Starring: Unknown
Release Date: Uknown
Producers: “The Walking Dead’s” Greg Nicotero and Ridley Scott

Ridley Scott in involved with the new TV series called Galyntine. Galyntine follows a familiar formula as “a cataclysmic technology-induced disaster has resulted in a new society that has eschewed any form of technology.” The event leaves small groups of survivors scattered around the planet, forcing them to adapt to isolation and unique challenges. Jason Cahill wrote the pilot and will executive produce with ‘The Walking Dead’ EP Greg Nicotero, David Zucker and Ridley Scott. Sounds a bit like Revolution doesn’t it?
