Ridley Scott, the director of sci-fi epics like Blade Runner and Prometheus, is getting back to the basics and producing six low-budget films over the next three years.
Fans of the horror, thriller and science fiction genres should be excited because that's exactly the kind of movies his company, along with Orchard Media and Focus Features International, plan on making.
The iconic filmmaker, who just wrapped filming The Counselor with Brad Pitt and Michael Fassbender, explained:
“Our target is to create a structure that enables filmmakers to push boundaries and to excite audiences. Our proposed model of filmmaking allows us to give directors the opportunity to really innovate through narrative, production techniques and distribution strategies.”
As long as that doesn't mean more found footage movies, we're looking forward to seeing what they come up with.
