It's probably Sir Didley Squat in that picture. I know he often gets mistaken for Ridley Scott.  :-\

Nobody knows exactly what went down, but based on Ridley's comments it seems there never was a full, locked script for Blomkamp's film in place.

And yet Ridley previously said they had the first draft of the script in and that "it was looking good". James Cameron called the script "gangbusters" and Sigourney Weaver praised it as well. One would also wonder what exactly Blomkamp was doing during the time the film was in pre-production (more than 9 months) if he wasn't working on the script.

Touche.

If I had to assume, there was a script, though it probably never reached an approved final shooting draft.

Yet The Predator's script was greenlighted ! Makes you wonder what was in Blomkamp's draft... Regarding Ridley and Neill, Fox probably had the final word about it but i can't see Scott really supporting Blomkamp's project...

I posted it because from what I was reading from Ridley is that yeah there was no script and thought they where not talking to each other.
So was excited when I saw the crossover.

I hope we get another Scott movie and then Blom-Ripley,
It would be so good to have another Ripley adventure.


[OP, I'm still waiting to hear why you think that is Ridley Scott in the picture and why you say that the picture was also posted on Ridley Scott's Creative Group's Instagram when it clearly wasn't. Quite frankly, I can see bugger-all connection here with anything related to Ridley Scott aside from some old geezer (in shorts no less) in a very low-res picture who might look vaguely similar to Scott if you stretch your imagination a lot.]

Hey there @The Eighth Passenger

Let me break it down a bit more for you,

I said, Ridley Scott posted on @ridleyscottfree a instagram "story" witch is only up for 24 hours with the same picture, and it said @neillblomkamp

and then @neillblomkamp had posted the same picture but better quality. 

So i put two and two together......

It's clearly Ridley Scott in the middle under the mountains.

Just did a quick Instagram search. @ridleyscottfree isn't verified, so it is just a fan account, not something run by Ridley or his people.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that whatever that picture that Blomkamp shared is of, it isn't Ridley Scott. That fan-created @ridleyscottfree account shared a version of that photo in its Instagram story because they thought it was of Scott based on the speculation based about Blomkamp's picture.

Yeah, LtJesseRipley beware of that fan account, they've posted some iffy stuff in the past. I've berated them myself before.  :laugh:

Here is Ridley Scott & Co.'s official instagram account (incorporating RSA Films and Scott Free Productions)  https://www.instagram.com/ridleyscottcg/

That picture Neill posted is most likely from Firebase.
