The younger Scott’s biggest project yet is the sci-fi thriller Morgan, starring Kate Mara, Anya Taylor-Joy, Paul Giamatti, Toby Jones and Boyd Holbrook. The movie follows a corporate risk-management consultant who is summoned to a remote research lab to decide whether to terminate an at-risk artificial being (shades of Ex Machina in there, we reckon). Ridley Scott is a co-producer on the film, which is expected to be released in 2016.
