Ridley Scott Moves back To Science-Fiction
Apparently Ridley Scott is looking to science-fiction for his next movie endeavour. He has secured the rights to Joe Haldeman’s novel The Forever War, about an intergalactic battle between Earth and an alien species known as the Taurans. Soldiers enter the fray by using something similar to wormholes, which allow them to cover massive amounts of space in a few seconds. The story sounds like a mash up of Battlestar Galactica and Starship Troopers. The book was written in 1974 and is considered to be based loosely on the author’s experiences in the Vietnam War.
