Ridley Scott just wrapped up filming on Prometheus, his latest entry into his Alien franchise and now he has announced that he will be producing and directing another installment of Blade Runner according to Deadline.
Scott will be making the film alongside Alcon Entertainment (The Blind Side, The Book Of Eli), with Alcon partners Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove co-producing.
They still have to hire a writer and no word yet if the film will be a reboot, prequel, or sequel. There’s also been no word on whether or not Harrison Ford will return.
Blade Runner was loosely based on Phillip K. Dick’s novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep back in 1982. It only made $32 million at the box office, but has since become a classic because of the cutting edge visual effects, along with the complex storyline.
Harrison Ford starred as Richard Deckard, a burnt out blade runner assigned to hunt down five escaped replicants (superhuman, organic robots) that are loose in Los Angeles in the year 2019.
