Alexander Witt: Ridley Scott's new DP?

For what it's worth, I also think Witt is one of the best second unit directors working in Hollywood today. Unlike so much second unit on Hollywood action films right now, you cannot tell where the main unit ends and Witt's stuff begins. CASINO ROYALE for example. Very refreshing to see these days, when the majority of movie action scenes today seem to be detatched showreels for stuntmen, jarringly inserted into a film with no pretense to match the tone or style of the main unit.

My favorite looking recent Ridley Scott films have been "Black Hawk Down" and "American Gangster", not to knock Mathieson's work but I guess I prefer a grittier approach than what he takes. It'll be interesting to see what this new film looks like with Witt, I liked "Casino Royale" and thought the action sequences blended very well with the story, so that's a good sign. Also, Pietro Scalia is pretty sweet.
