Ridley Scott is returning to science fiction, the genre he spurned, for the first ever movie adaptation of Aldous Huxley's classic false-utopia novel Brave New World. Leonardo DiCaprio, who owns the movie rights to Brave, will probably star as John the Savage, a natural man who confronts a world of test-tube babies who are kept pacified with drugs and sex. According to Leonardo's dad, who was friends with Huxley's widow, the movie will include CGI vistas of a "vast futuristic world." [Big Picture Radio]
OH! Thank you Jesus! This is fantastic news! I know Mr. Scott has gotten some bad press for his insane ego...but seriously, the man knows how to make a fantasy movie better than any human on the planet. This will be great. Mr. Scott won't have it any other way.
