Ridley Scott in talks to direct the twilight saga Disney on Merlin
Ridley Scott is in talks to direct the saga of Merlin for Disney. The film will be based on the books by T. A Barron, and will follow the story of Merlin the Magician before the meeting with King Arthur and the Round Table. The screenwriter will be Philippa Boyens, who has worked with the film saga fantasy the Lord of The Rings. Ridley Scott will produce the film with his banner Scott Free, and, beside him, there will be Gil Netter (life of Pi – Marley & Me).
The production is still in an embryonic stage and do not have more information. Ridley Scott has directed films such as Alien, Blade Runner and Gladiator and Robin Hood. Remember that feature-length films on Merlin are really too many: is it really needed another film? The BBC has also made a television series, Merlin, which tells the story of the past, of the magician.
