‘Alien’ And ‘Blade Runner’ Series Goes Fast-Forward
Ridley Scott’s classic films Alien and Blade Runner have earned him Sigourney Weaver and Harrison Ford worldly recognition. Scott is fast-forwarding, said TV-Series in development.
Both Alien and Blade Runner are clearly something that Ridley Scott can’t leave out of his hands. According to Scott, Blade Runner is set to be a 10-hour series with the pilot already written.
“We [have already] written the pilot for ‘Blade Runner’ and the bible. So, we’re already presenting ‘Blade Runner’ as a TV show, the first 10 hours.”
Scott’s other series Alien will also get a series, with the pilot already written, and the series develops. That series was announced in 2020, already attached at FX and Noah Hawley as the showrunner. According to John Landgraf, FX Boss, Alien will be a landmark series;
“the first ‘Alien’ story set on Earth—and by blending both the timeless horror of the first ‘Alien’ film with the non-stop action of the second, it’s going to be a scary thrill ride that will blow people back in their seats.”
Scott has also mentioned his opinion about what happened in the tragic, deadly incident at Rust, killing Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.
“I don’t know what a real gun or real ammunition was doing on the goddamned set,” said Scott. “Someone should get in trouble for that. Absolutely crazy. You never have any live ammunition near the set.”
Scott’s Kitbag, the biopic about Napoleon Bonaparte starring Joaquin Phoenix and Jodie Comer as Marie Antoinette, will start production on January 15th, the director confirms.
