Following the success of Ridley Scott’s THE MARTIAN in 2015 which earned Scalia ACE and BAFTA nominations he joined Scott for ALIEN: COVENANT, their eleventh film together, released in May 2017.


Pietro Scalia is a two-time Academy Award winner.  For over twenty-five years Scalia has been an integral collaborator on films from prolific and acclaimed directors such as Ridley Scott, Oliver Stone, Bernardo Bertolucci, Gus Van Sant, Rob Marshall and Sam Raimi.


Scalia began his career as an Assistant Editor for Oliver Stone’s WALL STREET and TALK RADIO, then went on to contribute as an Associate Editor on BORN ON THE FOURTH OF JULY and as an Additional Editor on THE DOORS.

In 1992, the 31year old Scalia won his first Academy Award for Best Editing Stone’s JFK, as well as ACE and the BAFTA awards. In 1998, Scalia received his second Academy Award nomination for Gus Van Sant’s GOOD WILL HUNTING. He went on to edit G.I. JANE, HANNIBAL, GLADIATOR, BLACK HAWK DOWN and AMERICAN GANGSTER for director Ridley Scott, garnering another Academy Award nomination on GLADIATOR and winning his second Academy Award for his work on BLACK HAWK DOWN.


After editing BODY OF LIES, ROBIN HOOD, PROMETHEUS, THE COUNSELOR for Scott, Scalia completed THE AMAZING SPIDERMAN 1and 2 for Marc Webb.  Other editing credits include LITTLE BUDDHA and STEALING BEAUTY for Bernardo Bertolucci, THE QUICK AND THE DEAD for Sam Raimi, PLAYING BY HEART for Willard Carroll, MEMOIRS OF A GEISHA for Rob Marshall and KICKASS for Matthew Vaughn.


He has also co-edited documentaries such as “40 YEARS OF SILENCE: AN INDONESIAN TRAGEDY, THE ELEVENTH HOUR and ASHES AND SNOW.


In addition, Scalia’s efforts include stints as music producer with composer Hans Zimmer on three of Scott’s films, and served as a Jury member at the Venice Film Festival in 2004 and at the Zurich Film festival in 2012.


The Italian-born Scalia was raised and educated in Switzerland before moving to the United States to pursue filmmaking, receiving his MFA in Film and Theatre Arts from UCLA in 1985.
