Ridley Scott Is Developing A Battle of Britain Film

We’re still a month and a half away from the release of his next feature, Alien: Covenant, but director Ridley Scott isn’t resting on his laurels. Earlier this week it was announced that he would next be directing a Getty biopic, All the Money in the World, for Sony. That project is set to shoot sometime this summer. According to Variety, Scott has now added another project to his slate. This time it’s a World War II film about the Battle of Britain, which he is now developing for Fox. Should the project move ahead, he will both produce and direct.

There is no information at this time as to when this film is expected to be made. It was set up at Scott Free Productions and Safe House Pictures last year, with Fox now coming on board to help finance and distribute. Ridley has a number of other projects set up at Fox at this time, so it is anyone’s guess as to which order they will be made in. His next for the studio was supposed to be an adaptation of the S. Craig Zahler violent western novel Wraiths of the Broken Land. That film was supposed to shoot later this year, but in light of him heading over to Sony to make All the Money in the World first, it may have been postponed.

The filmmaker is also attached to direct an adaptation of Don Winslow’s novel, The Cartel. The initial announcement of that project stated that it might be split into two films, but little has been made known about it since. On top of these projects, Scott has made it abundantly clear that he would love to make a few more Alien films for the studio as well. Regardless of what order any or all of these productions happen in, one thing is for certain: Ridley Scott has no intention of slowing down.
