Director Ridley Scott is reportedly in talks to create a remake of Agatha Christie classic, Murder on the Orient Express.

The Hollywood Reporter has said that 20th Century Fox has picked up the rights for the film and that the production team is on the look-out for writers to adapt the original novel.

Meanwhile Scott is also working on a film about concussions in American football and alleged NFL (National Football League) practises which may put players in danger.

He is also heavily involved in sequels to both Prometheus and Blade Runner following a disappointing performance in the box-office and amongst critics for his recent release The Counsellor.
