Ridley Scott may have never won a best director Oscar, but he is often talked about as one of the best directors working today. From Alien to Blade Runner to The Martian, the British filmmaker is known for dabbling in many genres, as well as for his visual flair (he used to be an ad man, after all).

Scott has faced many filmmaking challenges in his long career, but few rival the one he set for himself when he decided to re-shoot All the Money in the World, with Christopher Plummer replacing Kevin Spacey in the role of J.P Getty. Today, listen to Scott's conversation with Tom Power about the race to remake All the Money in the World and the key to his longevity in the film industry.
