One of my choices to direct a Richard Rider Nova movie, Ridley Scott, comments on directing comic book movies.

Scott, who is known for grandiose movies such as Alien, Blade RunnerGladiator and the upcoming Exodus: Gods and Kings, is asked by IGN if he would consider a comic book movie.

Ridley Scott's response is that he is hesitant to take them on:

I've had a lot of opportunities and I tend not to do that. They're the hardest single thing to write. Taking a comic strip character is very hard to write. Because comics are meant to work in one page, to work in frames with minimalistic dialogue. And a lot of it is left to the imagination of the reader. To do that in film you've got to be a little more explanatory. And that requires a good screenplay and good dialogue."

Exodus: Gods and Kings has a December 12th release.
