Ridley Scott To Direct Red Riding The Film

Ridley Scott is in negotiations to direct the big-screen remake of Channel 4’s critically acclaimed mini-series Red Riding.

The film-maker obviously believes that he will be able to transfer British ideas to an American format with more skill than many before him.

With good cause, the US version of Life On Mars was recently cancelled after one series.

Apparently, the story which focuses on a corrupt police forces pursuit of the Yorkshire Ripper, was a hit in the states, and the three telefilms will be released theatrically stateside as a 302-minute feature this ‘fall’.

We are assuming that, they won’t be putting all the episodes together? It would make the LOTR seem like a mere trailer in comparison…

StumbleUpon It!
