wikiquote: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ridley_Scott

"On 12 October 2008, Ridley Scott confirmed that after a 25 year wait for the rights to become available, he is making a return to science fiction with a film adaptation of the book The Forever War by Joe Haldeman. He was looking for a script writer.[24].

In March 2009, Scott confirmed that the film would be in 3D citing James Cameron's Avatar as an inspiration for doing so. "I'm filming a book by Joe Haldeman called Forever War. I've got a good writer doing it. I've seen some of James Cameron's work, and I've got to go 3D. It's going to be phenomenal."[25][26]

Another science fiction project to which Scott has been attached is an adaptation of Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, with DiCaprio also attached."

Now that book should translate wonderfully onscreen.
Loved it.

Decrappio in Brave New World. Double ugh. (There was a pretty good version a few years ago that was made for TV, Leonard Nemoy played Mustafah Mond.)

The Ridley Scott thing sounds fun though.
