Ridley Scott to produce Japanese Life In A Day

February 28th, 2012

Ridley Scott is producing a Japanese version of 'Life In A Day'.

The 'Prometheus' director and Fuji TV will give out 200 cameras on March 11, exactly one year on from the devastating earthquake and following tsunami that hit the country, to those most affected by the natural disaster.

They will then be given the whole day to film happenings in their life, and the best footage will be taken and edited together to create a documentary feature, Deadline.com reports.

It is not known who will direct the project, following on from Kevin McDonald's turn in filmmaker's chair for the original 'Life In A Day'.

Ridley's participation is likely to not be too in depth as he currently has a lot of work on his hands, including the completion of 'Alien' prequel 'Prometheus' staring Charlize Theron and Michael Fassbender, and executive producer roles on 'Stoker', 'Britain In A Day' and TV series 'Pompeii'.

The Japanese project will be shown at cinemas worldwide.
