Ridley And Tony Scott Are Coming For Your TV

Thursday, March 17 by

Ridley Scott and his brother Hatty McRedHatsAlot are halting their ongoing purple nirple war to team up on a new project. The directors will combine their Britishness to produce a television miniseries adaptation of “Labyrinth.” The best-selling novel by Kate Mosse follows a woman who discovers a ring with an intricate labyrinth engraved on it. That ring attracts the attention of an evil detective and a wealthy, powerful woman (Oprah?).

Intertwined with this story, is one of a 17-year old girl in the thirteenth-century who is on a mission to protect the secrets of the Holy Grail from the invading French.

How those stories mesh isn’t exactly clear but I’d be interested to see Ridley direct the thirteenth-century storyline and Tony helm the present day. Mainly because a Kenny Loggins soundtrack would be distracting laid on top of the French invasion. (Variety)
