Recently Oscar-nominated BLACK HAWK DOWN director Ridley Scott happears to have his next film lined up, and surprise, it's another historical drama titled TRIPOLI. It's being compared to LAWRENCE OF ARABIA. The true story of William Eaton, an American who helped the rightful heir to the throne of Tripoli (now Libya) lead an overthrow of a corrupt ruler who was oppressing the population in the early 1800s.
