by at . Comments

Ridley Scott is apparently planning on directing a biopic about Gertrude Bell, which could be his next project after Prometheus.  The director has brought Jeffrey Caine on to write the screenplay based on Bell's life.

Ridley Scott Prometheus

Bell was a British writer who traveled to the Middle East as an ambassador in the early 20th century, becoming a huge influence and political figure in that region.  She helped establish the Hashemite dynasties in Jordan and Iraq.

Scott has a few projects in the works, so this might not be his next one, but definitely one to look out for in the next couple of years.
