The Visual Effects Society are set to honour Ridley Scott with a lifetime achievement award at the 14th annual VES Awards in February 2016.
“To be honored by the Visual Effects Society with this Lifetime Achievement Award is indeed extremely gratifying.” Ridley Scott.
Earlier this month it was also announced that Scott is to receive the Hollywood Producer Award at the Hollywood Film Awards in November.
Scott’s most recent film, The Martian, has been one of the strongest performing films of year both critically and commercially. The film stars Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kate Mara, and Donald Glover, and opened at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Known for seminal films such as Alien, Gladiator, and Blade Runner, Scott has recently talked of work on a sequel to sci-fi horror Prometheus.
