Jane (1997) and even Clarice Starling (Played by: Julianne Moore) in, Hannibal (2001), is about to head back in to the realm of Science Fiction (A genre that helped make him famous)!

This is was what Mr. Scott told the Daily Beast about the upcoming project so far, “Funny enough, I started my first meetings on the Blade Runner sequel last week. We have a very good take on it. And we’ll definitely be featuring a female protagonist.”
