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.].

(Thanks, Jason)
