Ridley Scott is a man who never takes breaks, and as such, he is always adding titles to his pile of films that are slated to be made. He proved himself to be a tireless filmmaker when he finished reshooting All The Money In The World after having to cut Kevin Spacey out of the film and replacing him with Christopher Plummer. Scott spent nine days effectively erasing the disgraced Spacey out of the film and substituting his scenes with that of Plummer’s. So as we wait to see what Scott has in store for us next, the director looks to be adding to his filmmaking slate with Disney.
According to new reports, Scott will be collaborating with Disney to work on an adaptation of The Merlin Saga, which centers on the legendary wizard’s early years before he became the advisor to King Arthur. More On the story below.
