    Ridley Scott's 'The Vatican' Shut Down; Dennis Wilson Biopic 'The Drummer' Shuttered

    So, here's an interesting parallel. Earlier today we learned that Hollywood was deciding to reboot "The Naked Gun" and remake Sidney Lumet's "The Murder On The Orient Express," because that's the way things go today. And now, in a cruel irony, two much more original sounding projects have bitten the...

    Ridley Scott Goes Young Adult With 'Fae' & Jon Favreau To Direct Pilot For Fantasy Series 'Shannara'

    Young people have disposable incomes. Lots of it. So is it any wonder that Hollywood is eager to keep the YA adaptation train rolling? Even though for every "Twilight" and "The Hunger Games" smash hit there have been roughly two or three more big misses, it seems the dice will keep being played and ...

    Ridley Scott Adds Football Head Injury Drama To List Of Things He Might Direct Eventually

    You would think for a guy that has two mega-sequels just waiting for him in "Prometheus 2" and "Blade Runner 2," not to mention about a zillion other producing gigs, Ridley Scott might want to focus up a bit. But he has never been one to leave anything to chance. Scott has always got a half-dozen or...

    Ripley: Believe it or Not, It's About All That

    When Women and Hollywood asked me if I wanted to do a couple of guest posts on horror movies, I jumped at the chance.

    Ridley Scott Says Script For 'Prometheus 2' Is Written While 'The Forever War' Is Still Coming Along

    Ridley Scott wasn't just toying around with the genre after returning to sci-fi with last year's "Prometheus"; he's jumped into those waters with both feet. While reception to the movie was decidedly mixed, it didn't take long for sequel talk to start and earlier this year, Noomi Rapace had even tol...

    The 5 Most WTF Moments From 'The Counselor'

Not only is he already in production on his Bible movie "Exodus," as per usual, he's got about a half billion projects coming up with his name stamped on them as an executive producer.
