HOLLYWOOD – Blade Runner and Alien director Ridley Scott says he’s open to de-aging himself.
Thelma and Louise and White Squall director Ridley Scott could digitally de-age himself. Scott revealed in an EXCLUSIVE interview with the French magazine Chapeau that he would be willing to undergo digital de-aging.

But if I could be young again, I’d break out into something really different.
The Duellists 2. Harvey Kietel and David Carradine de-aged, me de-aged, we’ll even de-age Vangelis and get him to do the music.
