Ridley Scott? Sci-fi? GET ON IT. He changed the genre with Blade Runner and Alien, going to the real titan of modern sci-fi will be bliss.

I'd assume DiCaprio is playing Bernard Marx, which is a pretty good choice and he's got the charisma.

But this is definitely awesome news.

Any ideas for who should play Lenina or Mustapha Mond?

EDIT: Last time Ridley Scott dabbled in the genre's seminal favorites, we got this:



Still one of the best commercials of all time.

Why can't Ridley Scott direct it by himself?

^He's referring to the wording of this thread title, which can make it sound like DiCaprio is co-directing.... which of course he isn't.
