Ridley Scott’s ‘Merlin’ Adds ‘Prometheus’ Cinematographer and Production Designer

Feb 1, 2018

It was recently announced that Ridley Scott was in talks with Disney to finally return to fantasy with Merlin Saga, a franchise adaption of T.A. Barron‘s fantasy novels that focus on a young Merlin years before the Arthurian legend.

Scott last tackled the fantasy genre with 1985’s Legend.

The script will be penned by Philippa Boyens, who co-wrote the Lord of The Rings and Hobbit films.

Omega Underground has learned that Scott isn’t wasting any time and has already hired two regulars as key crew members on the Disney film. As Prometheus production designer Arthur Max (Gladiator, The Martian, Robin Hood) and cinematographer Dariusz Wolski (Sicario 2, All The Money In The World, Alien: Covenant, The Crow, The Martian) have joined the project.

This crew update might suggest that Ridley has indeed signed on to direct.

Merlin is currently without production or release dates.
