The famed filmmaker is getting attached to helm "Stones" for Fox 2000.
Just achieved commercial success through his latest work "American Gangster", Ridley Scott has already got something new lined up in his busy schedule. Report from Variety reveals that the renowned filmmaker is now attached to helm a supernatural thriller of Fox 2000 production entitled "Stones."
Aimed to be a big-scale feature in the genre, project will center on the mysterious destruction of ancient religious sites around the world. Later it is learned that Stonehenge turns out to be the tie that binds together artifacts that still have primeval powers.
Assigned to pen the script is Matt Cirulnick, who fixed on the idea that Stonehenge, the great pyramids and other artifacts were built for a specific unified purpose. Pic, however, has to wait for the WGA strike to conclude first before it can continue its development with Scott Free to produce.
