Ridley Scott has revealed that he intends to make a third science fiction film.
The British filmmaker directed the acclaimed sci-fi films Alien and Blade Runner, but hasn't worked in the genre for over 25 years.
In an interview with Eclipse, Scott said: "I am going to do one. 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."
Scott's next film A House Of Lies - starring Leonardo Di Caprio and Russell Crowe - is scheduled for release later in the year.

This in my opinion is great news, the guy made two of the best Sci-Fi movies ever that stand there amongst the all time classics, I'd love to know what book he's filming. I hope he gets Ron Cobb and Syd Mead onboard as concept artists !
The rumours I've read say that the film could be possibly be a film version of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, which has already had TV versions filmed in 1980 and 1998. Wiki has this listed and says Ridley Scott, Leonardo Di Caprio are collaborating.
The other talk is that it's Orson Scott Card's 1985 SF novel Ender's Game, which features an insectoid alien race known as the 'Buggers' :)
There was talk of Wolfgang Peterson directing this though until a few years ago.
