Take a deep breath, and relax – Blade Runner 2 is still happening! Ok, we’re all saying Blade Runner 2 aka Untitled Blade Runner Project simply because the movie is still without an official title, but hey – at least we have something new to share with you, and no rumors this time! This update comes straight from director Ridley Scott, so make sure you check out the rest of the report for some exclusive details!
First of all, I guess that the most interesting thing about Blade Runner right now is – Harrison Ford. As you probably remember, back in May Scott said:
I don’t think it’ll be Harry starring. But I’ve got to have him in it somewhere. That’d be amusing.
All of the sudden, in an interview with Metro, director reveals:
With Harrison Ford? I don’t know yet. Is he too old? Well, he was a Nexus-6 so we don’t know how long he can live. And that’s all I’m going to say at this stage.
Ok, we understand that everything is still in the early stages development, but it’s good to know that this project is still alive. I will just remind you that the film doesn’t even have a completed script yet, and that producer Andrew Kosove previously explained that the movie will be a total reinvention.
Hampton Fancher is on board to pen the story that will (apparently) take place some years after the first film concluded.
And that’s all for today folks! Stay tuned for more Blade Runner updates!
