Blown away by this news! The first movie was back in 1982! That’s 34+ years in between an original and it’s sequel!
Harrison Ford will reprise his lead role in the dystopian sci-fi film Blade Runner for a sequel, according to media reports.
Alcon Entertainment made the announcement on Thursday, and the original film’s director, Ridley Scott will not be directing but returns to the helm as producer. Canadian director Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Enemy) is currently in negotiations to direct.
The second instalment has been written by Hampton Fancher, who co-wrote the original screenplay, and Michael Green. Ford said of the script “this is the best thing I’ve ever read”, according to an interview with Scott by MTV in November.
