Ridley Scott Pursuing New York Cop Saga


What will Ridley Scott do after he’s finished up on Alien: Covenant?

Well Fox has bought the movie rights to an untitled crime thriller by novelist Don Winslow and set it up for Ridley Scott to produce through his Fox-based Scott Free company.

Fox’s sister company HarperCollins Publishers’ imprint William Morrow will release the new novel in June, which centers on a corrupt sergeant at the NYPD’s most elite crime-fighting unit who must choose between his family, his partners and his life. Michael Schaefer and Shane Salerno are producing with Scott.

I wouldn’t mind seeing Scott direct this too, whatever it turns out to be.  Black Rain was a cool movie, it would be nice to see him do another feature like that.
