Specially for the Ridley Scott series, Richard Preston will rewrite his novel Automatic translate
According to The New York Times, Ridley Scott intends to make a series in the near future based on the book Hot Zone, which tells of the outbreak of Ebola by writer Richard Preston. However, the author himself said that he intended to rewrite his novel before filming began.
The Hot Zone book was published in 1994 and sold 3.5 million copies, and world-famous writer Stephen King said it was “one of the most frightening books” he had read. Recently, another 150 thousand copies have been sold, such an increased interest in the “Hot Zone” has arisen in connection with the outbreak of Ebola in Africa.
In the Hot Zone book, Richard Preston tells the story of the discovery and study of Ebola, as well as a real incident that occurred in 1989 near Washington, where the virus nearly caused an outbreak due to negligence of laboratory staff. “Now I crave to renew the novel. I want to make the clinical picture of the virus clearer and more accurate. In the original Hot Zone, one of the nurses was crying for blood, but this could not happen. If you have a fever, your eyes may turn red due to bursting vessels, and this is terrible, but still it is not bloody tears flowing down the cheeks. This needs to be fixed, ”the author said. He also decided to mention in the new version of the book all the outbreaks of Ebola that have occurred over the past 20 years.
The idea of filming a book for director Ridley Scott came a long time ago, right after the release of the Hot Zone, but right now, in connection with the outbreak of the epidemic in Africa, Fox decided to shoot the series. Then it was planned to take on the main roles of Robert Redford and Jodie Foster, who will now perform them is still unknown.
Recall that the British director Ridley Skkt is now 76 years old. Such famous paintings as Prometheus, Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator and others came out from under him.
