2001: A Space Odyssey sequel miniseries plannedNov 04 2014

Syfy is doing a 2001: A Space Odyssey sequel miniseries based on Arthur C. Clarke's final book in his four-book Space Odyssey series, 3001: The Final Odyssey. Here's the book's synopsis:

One thousand years after the Jupiter mission to explore the mysterious Monolith had been destroyed, after Dave Bowman was transformed into the Star Child, Frank Poole drifted in space, frozen and forgotten, leaving the supercomputer HAL inoperable. But now Poole has returned to life, awakening in a world far different from the one he left behind -- and just as the Monolith may be stirring once again

Ridley Scott is executive producing and Stuart Beattie (Pirates of the Caribbean, Collateral) will do the heavy adaptational lifting.

Ridley Scott is doing a Blade Runner sequelMay 18 2012

In this interview with The Daily Beast, Ridley Scott reveals that he's currently working on a sequel to Blade Runner.

Funny enough, I started my first meetings on the Blade Runner sequel last week. We have a very good take on it. And we'll definitely be featuring a female protagonist.

Blade Runner II?Aug 20 2011

You may have heard by now that Ridley Scott has signed on to "direct and produce a new installment of Blade Runner." Nobody seems to know if it's a prequel or sequel, but I imagine either way, Harrison Ford will be around for a paycheck if there's a role for him. It's often said that Hollywood is out of ideas, but this is a perfect project for Ridley Scott whose next film, Prometheus, is a "cousin" of the Alien franchise.

If it seems I'm not giving this story the proper respect, it's because I only saw Blade Runner once while [Redacted because it's too long of a story for the throwaway sentence at the end of a post. You'll have to trust it was less than ideal cinematic viewing conditions.].
