Ridley Scott may wage “The Forever War”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Ridley Scott’s plate seems full. Yet from the look of things, he just made room for something else.

Author Joe Halderman posted on his LiveJournal page that Oscar-winning screenwriter David Webb Peoples (Clint Eastwood’s “Unforgiven”) has submitted an adaptation of the novelist’s “The Forever War,” with the intention of Ridley Scott directing. The two collaborated on another science-fiction picture you might have heard of: “Blade Runner.”

Halderman’s “War” is part of a larger “Forever War” series (which includes the sequels “Forever Free” and “Forever Peace”), which details an intergalactic battle between man and the Tauran species.

“Scott has a script. Last I heard, it was the fourth rewrite,” Halderman wrote. “I’ve talked to the writer. … It will be interesting to see somebody else’s take on it.”

Of course, that would happen sometime after Scott completed his already moving, back-to-back “Alien” prequels — which have release dates in 2011 and 2012 — as well as the announced adaptation of Tom Epperson’s “The Kind One,” with Casey Affleck.

So “War” might be in the distant future. But if it means a re-teaming of “Blade Runner” creators Scott and Peoples, we’re more than willing to wait.
