TMT wrote:Ridley Scott's Blade Runner Follow-Up is Officially a Sequel

Still uneasiness of its development, a continuation of Ridley Scott's Blade Runner continues to move forward.

This afternoon comes a press release confirming the Blade Runner follow-up is, in fact, a sequel set "some years" after the groundbreaking 1982 science-fiction classic. Also official confirmation Hampton Fancher, who authored the original draft, subsequently rewritten by David Peoples, will reunion with Scott to write.

I'll be more encouraged if Prometheus lives up the hype, and God do I hope so. Until then, can't get caught up in the hysteria of returning to that world. Have to see how Scott's other return to the well does first. Have to remember Blade Runner, as influential as it was, was a financial failure upon release. Just because Disney took that risk with Tron: Legacy doesn't mean others will follow suit here.

Worst Previews wrote:Harrison Ford Excited to Return for "Blade Runner" Sequel

When Ridley Scott first revealed that he's working on "Alien" prequel, called "Prometheus," he also said that he's working on a sequel to his "Blade Runner" sci-fi film, which starred Harrison Ford.

Now, while participating in an "Ask Me Anything" session on Reddit, Ford commented on how he feels about potentially returning for "Blade Runner 2." He said: "I'm quite curious and excited about seeing a new script for 'Blade Runner.' If it's a good script I would be very anxious to work with Ridley Scott again, he's a very talented and passionate filmmaker. And I think it would be very interesting to revisit the character."

Coincidentally, Ford also said that "Blade Runner" was the most difficult film he ever worked on, stating that the cast and crew worked fifty nights in a row and "it was always raining."

TMT wrote:"Blade Runner" Sequel Offer Out to Harrison Ford to Return

In somewhat of an odd bit of news, Alcon Entertainment has issued the below listed press release that Harrison Ford has been offered the chance to return for a Blade Runner sequel, but hasn't actually signed-on.

I'm not sure if this is a public ploy to put pressure of Ford to agree to reprise his role of Rick Deckard from the 1982 sci-fi classic, but it's certainly notable when a studio wants people to know what's going on behind the negotiation process.

Being that Ford is set to have a notable role in the new Star Wars trilogy, I wouldn't be shocked if he agrees to do this. I'm sure his role will be important if agreed upon, but not the lead. That duty will likely go to a younger, more currently-popular, actor/actress.

With director Ridley Scott set to return along with original writer, Hampton Fancher, read the full press release below:

Warner Bros-based Alcon Entertainment (Prisoners, The Blind Side, The Book of Eli) has an offer out to Harrison Ford to reprise his celebrated role of Rick Deckard in its Ridley Scott-directed sequel to Blade Runner, it was announced by Alcon co-founders and co-CEOs Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson.

Hampton Fancher (co-writer of the 1982 adaptation) and Michael Green are the screenwriters.

While the story is being kept under wraps, it takes place several decades after the conclusion of the 1982 original.

State Johnson and Kosove: "We believe that Hampton Fancher and Michael Green have crafted with Ridley Scott an extraordinary sequel to one of the greatest films of all time. We would be honored, and we are hopeful, that Harrison will be part of our project."

Alcon Entertainment acquired the film, television and ancillary franchise rights in 2011 from producer Bud Yorkin to produce prequels and sequels to the iconic science-fiction thriller. Yorkin will serve as a producer on the sequel along with Kosove and Johnson. Cynthia Sikes Yorkin will co-produce. Frank Giustra and Tim Gamble, CEOs of Thunderbird Films, will serve as executive producers.

Among its many distinctions, Blade Runner has been singled out as one of the greatest movies of all time by innumerable polls and media outlets, and overwhelmingly as the greatest science-fiction film of all time by a majority of genre publications.

Released by Warner Bros., Blade Runner was adapted by Hampton Fancher and David Peoples from Philip K. Dick's novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" and was directed by Ridley Scott following his landmark Alien. The film was nominated for two Academy Awards (Best Visual Effects, and Best Art Direction).

Blade Runner was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant." The film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry in 1993 and is frequently taught in university courses. In 2007, it was named the 2nd most visually influential film of all time by the Visual Effects Society.

Superhero Hype wrote:Denis Villeneuve to Direct Blade Runner Sequel, Harrison Ford Confirmed!

The film is scheduled to start principle photography in summer of 2016.

Ford will next be seen in The Age of Adaline for Lionsgate before he reprises another iconic sci-fi role, returning as Han Solo in J.J. Abrams’ much anticipated Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Villeneuve’s next, meanwhile, is the crime thriller Sicario, starring Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin, and Benecio Del Toro, for Black Label Media and Lionsgate.

New Trailer!



not a huge fan of the original and have attempted to watch it many times and don't love it like others do. it's decent, good visuals but a tad boring. will still check this one out though. a pity Ridley didn't return, was busy doing Alien Covenant I guess.

just saw it, here are some words I would use to describe this movie:

long, boring, loud, forgettable, uninteresting, bland, unneeded, crap.

I don't get the love this and the original gets, I really don't. would love what everyone is smoking! just don't see what everyone else is seeing. right from the start the movie was LOUD, saw it in Extremescreen but still have never heard a movie be so loud before. the fake/computer girlfriend relationship was not needed for this story and should have been cut out completely or briefly hinted at. Ryan has always one expression on his face, no emotion. had to relate to someone with a robotic face, how does he keep getting work?! the story was just not interesting and didn't care for what was going on, too long for such a simple story. Harrison Ford doesn't show up till 1 freaking hour into it, take away his scenes and the other 2 cameos and throwbacks and it's a god damn remake. the visuals even didn't impress me, not as much as the original movie... and that was made in 82! didn't love the directors other movies either, or any movie from the 2010s. these days people rave about certain movies and I don't get it. might have been more of an interesting story if Ryan was hunting down replicants, just like the original but then again it would be a remake.

I rewatched the original and use to not like it, but now I think it's a masterpiece compared to this!

Hmm, two conflicting views there.
I can't even remember the first one, but recorded it the other week to recap, but haven't watched it yet.
