Default First Ascent - Horror/thriller starring Daisy Ridley (Produced by Ridley Scott)

In a recent interview, Ridley Scott let it slip that his son Jake Scott is directing a film with Daisy Ridley this January.

Quote:
DEADLINE: You and your late brother Tony built RSA and Scott Free, and you’ve got family members coming up. How do you manage having everyone know their place, and that you are boss?

SCOTT: Well, my oldest is older than you, and my second one who’s running the company is older than you, too. My daughter is 42, has just written her next film, and I’m still shocked at what a good writer she is. God, I wish I could write like her. Jordan is probably not interested in being a hands-on person as part of the corporation. She’s just passionate about making movies. The middle one turns out they have a very good brain in terms of perception, adjustment, balance, and Jake is already now starting his next movie in January with Daisy Ridley, and he just did this year a great documentary on Oasis. It’s a good one. He actually did some of the first videos with Oasis. So, they’re all busy, and the key from my point of view is being in constant contact. I have already called my daughter today, and I’m giving her notes on her script because I can read it and use my experience to help. I don’t write, but I’m quite good with writers. I’ll say you’re going on a bit, you’re rambling. It’s bit like writing a book, where a great book editor is quite valuable.

Fans of the actress did some investigating and discovered it’s a horror/thriller project that was previously reported to be acquired by Netflix with Ridley Scott producing:

Quote:
Netflix Wins ‘First Ascent;’ Avid Mountain Climber Jake Scott To Direct Colin Bannon’s Black List Genre Spec

In a last fevered auction before the holidays, Netflix prevailed and paid high six figures for First Ascent, a genre script by Colin Bannon with a female lead set in the world of mountain climbing. The project injects a genre element to a dangerous sport and was likened to The Shining meets Free Solo.

Scott Free’s Ridley Scott, Kevin Walsh and Michael Pruss are producing alongside Sukee Chew at Hopscotch Pictures.

Two years after a free solo accident nearly kills Hillary Hall, she enlists the help of her old climbing partners to document her comeback — the first ascent of a 4000 foot “virgin” rock wall in China. During the harrowing summit, Hillary struggles with her inner demons and supernatural forces, as it slowly becomes clear that this mountain does not want to be conquered.

Sounds like an intriguing premise and a great fit for an actress that has already proven she can bring the physicality for such a role.

Another movie with an interesting premise being dumped on Netflix.

Hollywood studios are asleep at the wheel.

Well, thatís the current way of things. Itís cheaper and easier for them to do that. If itís awesome and gets a massively positive response they can make a good bucks off of disc sales and maybe even release it in the theater afterwards. I dunno. This is how it is now though.

There's not much in between huge blockbusters, a couple of horror movies and Oscar bait movies which get proper theatrical releases these day. Which is a bummer. But I hope the trend will revert one day.
