It’ll have to wait until after the end of strike season to resume production, but Ridley Scott has found his next project.

Variety reports that Scott has signed on to direct Stones, a “supernatural thriller” described as follows:

Project is a big-scale supernatural thriller revolving around the mysterious destruction of ancient religious sites around the world. It turns out that Stonehenge is the tie that binds together artifacts that still have primeval powers.

The script was written by Matt Cirulnick, who recently scripted Elysium for New Regency. While penning that project, which Variety describes as weaving “Greek mythology into a drama,” Cirulnick “fixed on the idea that Stonehenge, the great pyramids and other artifacts were built for a specific unified purpose.”

Scott is currently directing Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe in Body of Lies, and is scheduled to follow that up with the revisionist Robin Hood tale Nottingham.
