Ridley Scott to roll with ‘Stones’

Director attached to Fox 2000 thriller

Fox 2000 has attached Ridley Scott to direct “Stones,” a supernatural thriller scripted by Matt Cirulnick. Scott Free will produce.

Project is a big-scale supernatural thriller revolving around the mysterious destruction of ancient religious sites around the world. It turns out that Stonehenge is the tie that binds together artifacts that still have primeval powers.

Cirulnick got the assignment after scripting “Elysium” for New Regency, a film that weaves Greek mythology into a drama. He fixed on the idea that Stonehenge, the great pyramids and other artifacts were built for a specific unified purpose.

Pic will resume development after the Writers Guild of America strike concludes. Scott is busy directing Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe in “Body Of Lies” for Warner Bros., and he is expected to follow by moving with Crowe right into “Nottingham,” the Ethan Reiff and Cyrus Voris-scripted drama for Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment.

“Stones” is Fox 2000’s second recent Scott Free deal involving a directing assignment for the sibling helmers. Tony Scott just set up to direct a biopic on the life and death of cigarette boat inventor Don Aronow.
