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 told us she met with Scott about the movie, noting that the script was being worked on. Fast forward a few months and it was revealed that "Transcendence" writer Jack Paglen had been hired to write the movie, while a comic is also being developed to continue the story. But when will see it on the big screen? Ridley Scott won't pin down a date but it seems things are moving along swiftly.

Ridley Scott, The Counselor
While this weekend's two notable releases--“Blue is the Warmest Color” and Ridley Scott's “The Counselor”--had us contemplating the explicit and aberrant examples in film from years past, it should be noted that the “Gladiator” director could've brought both to the big screen in a big way--if only a studio would touch it. He's still made history by making Cormac McCarthy's first original screenplay into a chatty and not entirely successful oddity, but in a recent interview, Scott touched briefly on his quashed adaptation of the author's best known and most grisly work.

That Ridley Scott has many, many things he's attached to is nothing new, and it seems every few weeks brings with it another gig he's producing or possibly directing, or in this case, an update to a movie that has been cooking on a slow simmer for years.
