7. CAN RIDLEY SCOTT HAVE NATALIE PORTMAN FOR ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD?

Critics may not love all of his movies (like The Counselor or Exodus: Gods and Kings), but one thing you can’t deny about Ridley Scott is that for a guy pushing 80, he is staying very, very productive. Scott has Alien: Covenant coming out this fall, is also producing Blade Runner 2049 and the Murder on the Orient Express remake, and he also made a deal recently for a Netflix movie (see above). Well, the projects keep coming, and the latest is a fact-based drama called All the Money in the World, based on a “Black List” screenplay chronicling the 1973 kidnapping of J. Paul Getty III. The story will focus on the efforts of his mother to raise the ransom money, with her very, very wealthy father John Paul Getty, Sr. reportedly refusing to pay any of it. Of course, we can read all about the kidnapping on Wikipedia, but it might also be nice to see it adapted by a director like Ridley Scott. Scott’s current focus is on casting the mother role, and after reportedly meeting last week with Angelina Jolie, he’s now hoping to recruit Natalie Portman, who is especially “hot” in Hollywood following the success of Jackie.
