Ridley Scott: Everything is already written

by Rachel Baker on August 26, 2014

Here’s an interesting segment about Ridley Scott in an interview where he talks about the sequels to ‘Martian,’ Blade Runner,’ and ‘Prometheus’.

Ridley Scott is a busy man. The director, 76, is currently putting the final touches on Exodus: Gods and Monsters, starring Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton (in theaters Dec. 12). But last week, he told EW a little about his next project, The Martian starring Matt Damon, which is slated for November 2015. “It’s a very good book,” says Scott of Andy Weir’s novel, which was originally self-published in 2012 before being republished by Crown this year. (You can read EW’s review of The Martian here.) The story follows Mark Watney, an astronaut who becomes stranded and assumed dead on Mars after a deadly storm. “It’s like Robinson Crusoe—if you were marooned or shipwrecked, how do you survive?”
