Ridley Scott To Make Brave New World?

We've waited almost 20 years for Ridley Scott's third science fiction film, after the greatness of Alien and Blade Runner. And now Scott has confirmed he's on the verge of helming another scifi flick. He said in an interview: "I waited for a book for 20 years and I have got the book. I am not going to tell you what the book is, but that film is going to probably be written within the next month. That will definitely be what I do next after Nottingham, the Robin Hood film that I am doing now in England." What book is that? We have reason to believe it's none other than the Aldous Huxley classic Brave New World. We also reported a while back that Titanic baby-face Leonardo Dicaprio may star in it, since his dad owns the movie rights to the book. Enough with this Merry Men nonsense, Ridley — please film the test-tube baby dystopia already. [Eclipse Magazine]
