Director Ridley Scott has certainly come under quite a bit of fire lately for the white-washed cast of ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ and his explicit dismissal of his critics. But Scott isn’t letting the negativity get to him, as he’s still moving ahead and giving updates on two high-profile sequels: ‘Prometheus 2’ and ‘Blade Runner 2.’ In a new interview, Scott opened up about the plot of the former and the reassuring simplicity of the latter.

The controversy over the mostly white casting of Ridley Scott’s new Biblical epic ‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ continues to draw controversy, mostly because Scott himself continues to say controversial things.

What a great day for dinosaurs who refuse to die! First a new ‘Jurassic Park’ trailer and now, via Variety, a report on the sequel to ‘Blade Runner,’ which has been rumored for most of the 30 years, since Ridley Scott released the original film back in 1982.
