Ridley Scott Reveals He Will Make Biblical Movie About Moses


Ridley Scott


The 'Prometheus' helmer opens up that his Moses film will not focus on 'the big stuff that everybody knows', but on 'things like his relationship with Ramses.'

"Prometheus" hasn't opened in the U.S. theaters, but director Ridley Scott already dishes on his next project. Instead of creating another groundbreaking sci-fi movie, the acclaimed filmmaker reveals that he will do a biblical pic about prophet Moses.

In an interview with Esquire, Scott opens up, "I've got something else in the works. I'm already doing it. It's called 'Moses'." When the interviewer thinks Scott is joking, the director responds, "Seriously, seriously. It's going to happen."

"I probably shouldn't have let that slip out. I'm not supposed to say anything," the South Shields-born moviemaker goes on claiming. "I'm not supposed to say anything." He reveals that his Moses pic will include the prophet's relationship with Ramses II.

"It's definitely in the cards, though. What's interesting to me about Moses isn't the big stuff that everybody knows," he says. "It's things like his relationship with Ramses [II, the pharaoh]. I honestly wasn't paying attention in school when I was told the story of Moses. Some of the details of his life are extraordinary."

Speaking about biblical story, Scott gushes that "Prometheus" is more like the Old Testament. He explains, "Oh, yes. I'm really intrigued by those eternal questions of creation and belief and faith. I don't care who you are, it's what we all think about. It's in the back of all our minds."

Scott's "Prometheus" will make its way out onto cinemas nationwide on June 8. In addition to "Moses", his upcoming projects post-"Prometheus" include the untitled Blade Runner project, which will reunite him with screenwriter Hampton Fancher.
