The veteran director chats about his new CIA pic

For his latest movie legendary lenser Ridley Scott is trading in blade running and chest popping aliens in favour of something a little more… political.

One of the most celebrated directors of our time (whose work includes Alien, Blade Runner, Thelma & Louise, Gladiator, Black Hawk Down and the recent success American Gangster) Scott is reteaming with “America Gladiator” star Russell Crowe for this middle Eastern spy thriller.

Here, the Oscar nominated director talks politics, bringing the adaptation to life and working with Leonardo DiCaprio for the first time.
