Exciting news for sci-fi fans today—Ridley Scott has confirmed that he will direct and produce another movie in the Blade Runner series. At this point it’s not clear whether or not the new movie will be a prequel or a sequel or if Harrison Ford will be involved—though a prequel would likely eliminate that possibility.
It’s also important to point out the Scott is currently wrapping production on Prometheus, a film that started out its life as an Alien prequel but evolved into an original story that’s tied into the Alien universe. There has been some chatter that he might go in a similar direction with this new movie.
We knew that Alcon Entertainment was entertaining ideas of more Blade Runner movies, but with Ridley Scott at the helm, the idea enters into a whole new world of credibility. The only problem is that we will likely have to wait a few years for the project to come to fruition.
