    Ridley Scott will direct supernatural thriller Stones for Fox 2000. Written by Matt Cirulnick, the film will be produced by Scott Free.

    Stones revolves around the mysterious destruction of ancient religious sites around the world. It turns out that Stonehenge is the tie that binds together artifacts that still have primeval powers.

    Variety says Cirulnick got the assignment after scripting Elysium for New Regency, a film that weaves Greek mythology into a drama. He fixed on the idea that Stonehenge, the great pyramids and other artifacts were built for a specific unified purpose.

    Pic will resume development after the Writers Guild of America strike concludes. Scott is busy directing Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe in Body Of Lies for Warner Bros., and he is expected to follow by moving with Crowe right into Nottingham, the Ethan Reiff and Cyrus Voris-scripted drama for Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment.

    I thought it was going to be a Rolling Stones biopic. I was ready to come in and suggest Guy Pearce for Jagger.

    I guess it doesn't matter now..
