Scott

Film Director

With oft-imitated and seminal works — including “Blade Runner,” “Alien” and “Thelma & Louise” — the four-time Oscar-nominated director-producer is equally at ease creating vast landscapes in the distant past and the distant future, with prodigious skills as an epic storyteller. In 2018, his “All the Money in the World” lived to triumph after the excising of star Kevin Spacey, winning replacement Christopher Plummer an Oscar nod. As a director, he has crafted  such varied fare as “The Martian,” “Gladiator,” “Hannibal” and “Legend,” though he has an equally diverse producing slate, with everything from “Blade Runner 2049,” the continuation of his 1982 genre-defining masterpiece, to TV shows “The Terror” on AMC and “Good Wife” spinoff “The Good Fight.”
