Ridley Scott has been making movies for several decades now. He’s made some of the greatest films of all time, and on top of all that, The Hollywood Reporter details how he has a thriving vineyard in Provence. He clearly doesn’t need the money anymore, and if he retired, he would become one of the most legendary filmmakers of all time. However, don’t expect him to hang up the cape anytime soon.
The THR article details Scott’s illustrious career, and when the subject of retirement comes up, Scott is quick to shoot it down. He talks about waking up at 5:30 a.m. ready to start, saying, “It has nothing to do financially, because I’m doing pretty well. I don’t need anything else. I found out you can only drink one bottle. of red wine in the evening. If you drink two, you feel sick. Even Ridley Scott’s son Luke doesn’t see his dad leaving anytime soon. As he puts it, “What you have to understand is what he’s doing isn’t working. When he’s spinning, that’s his form of relaxation. It’s the food that keeps him going.”
It’s safe to say that we’ll continue to receive Ridley Scott movies for some time to come. And as long as he is able, he will continue to create one great work of art after the next.
