The only way we could get a Wes Anderson and Ridley Scott crossover would be in our dreams. But the next cl0sest thing is the Wes Anderson-produced documentary Escapes, which follows the strange and beautiful life of Hampton Fancher, the former flamenco dancer-turned screenwriter of one of the most iconic sci-fi movies of all time, Blade Runner.
