Ridley Scott Directing Berserk?

From ANN

Berserk, Baki, Barefoot Gen Pitched to Hollywood

…Producer Northrop Davis confirmed at the Saturday grand opening of the New People cultural entertainment center in San Francisco that he pitched… possibly for James Cameron (Titanic, Aliens, Avatar) to direct…

Ray’s Take: Well, do we want to see these films become Hollywood remakes? Hard to tell, because stuff like Berserk can be translated, except some of the darker themes would be lost for sure. But a story of a wrestler (?) and Barefoot Gen? Well, when was the last time Hollywood brought us good messages without any contamination? This seems like the latest entry in the “suspicion” that Hollywood writers are running out of fresh and original ideas and have to borrow from somewhere else. In any case, I can’t remember the last time I went to see Hollywood-style movies for a powerful and educational message, except this one – “The Americans have found a way to hack into the Aliens’ computer!”

Yer damned right.
