Scott

Film Director

Scott, one of the 20th century’s last great auteurs, is blessed with a singular vision and a ferocious work ethic. He put himself on the map as a commercial director and kept making TV spots (think “1984,” which launched the Apple Macintosh) even after he established himself as a filmmaker with “Alien” (1979) and “Blade Runner” (1982). His most recent feature (“All the Money in the World”) was released back in 2017, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t been busy. In recent months, he’s produced the miniseries “The Hot Zone” and “A Christmas Carol,” the TNT series “Raised by Wolves” and the features “Naked Singularity” and “Earthquake Bird.” In July, he signed on to direct a re-teaming of Ben Affleck and Matt Damon in “The Last Duel.”
