Ridley Scott to tackle the Battle of Britain

April 4th, 2017 by bash Comments

Ridley Scott is set to direct his take on the Battle of Britain.

The air campaign which saw the Royal Air Force hold off Nazi Germany’s Luftwaffe during World War II was a pivotal turning point in the six year battle. Famous 007 director Guy Hamilton filmed his take on the battle in 1969 (see the movie poster above).

The project is set up at 20th Century Fox, which picked up the film last year and is in early development. Matthew Orton is putting the screenplay together.

Scott, meanwhile, is currently putting the finishing touches to Alien: Covenant and has plans on further Alien sequel/prequels in the coming years.

More as we get it.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
