Ridley Scott: "The island is stunning and again to shoot a great movie"
On Sunday, the filmmaker English breakfast eggs with bacon and questions from the local press. He avoided talking about the movie that provides roll in Gran Canaria, but half the world knows that it is preparing a blockbuster on Moses starring Christian Bale. He says he will return.
- What did you think of the Island?
- Is impressive. We went by helicopter and saw it all. We found a couple of very good locations so again. We are looking for natural beauty. But in that nature we have to build things and bring things, which is what I usually do. In other words, it is a movie about nature. Not what you want to tell because it is confidential. It's a super production that takes place in nature with different variants; natural scenery, landscapes, vast deserts ... Like Lawrence of Arabia had different scenarios, it will have different backgrounds.
- Did you find what you need?
-The nature here is very beautiful. What impressed me most is how clean and well run that is the island. Everything is painted in a warm. I look at these things, I am very picky. This is how I make my films, from the head. If you order, you have chaos.
- Do you like the diversity of landscapes?
- Yes, of course. I rode in Spain before the Kingdom of Heaven and 1492. Rode in Morocco Black Hawk Down, Gladiator and Body of Lies, I'm used to shooting in desert sites. The atmosphere here is similar. That makes things easier for me.
- What kind of movie plans?
-If I said something more than film landscape would know which movie it is and the truth is that there is a big competition that is not to say it is. It is written and the casting is over but I can not say who will be. We are already looking for locations is that we are approaching. When you make a film like this you can not get a Monday and say, we shot. No, you have six months of preparation, a unit with hundreds of people, traveling like a big circus, with support ...
- Most will be shot here?
- It will have a 19-week shoot. Here are some three weeks ... Six weeks with the team three weeks intensive preparation and the main unit.
-For the Spanish, Blade Runner is a milestone in the history of cinema. What about the second part?
- Yesterday I read the script. I wrote the script in the last seven weeks with the original author. We work with the original characters by what might be called Blade Runner II. It is green but the draft is pretty good.
THE RETURN OF ALIEN. Prometheus, the latest film by Scott's Alien prequel to his hit-not liked by the legion of fans of his previous film. "In the aftermath spends one thing: the end using the same animals and the same monsters and people get tired. So, the first Alien is by far the scariest. In the aftermath, the film do not unique. Alien was, but not ... Alien 2 the 4 and not scary. So I want to return to the idea of ​​something new. Something about the eternal question, on faith, "says the agnostic that Prometheus wanted to enter the mystical land. "We have 3.5 million years and man only 75,000 years. I do not think so. We may have had several previous incarnations of some form of civilization. "
