Harrison Ford talks Blade Runner sequel

October 9th, 2013 by bash 3 Comments


Harrison Ford has confirmed he’s been chatting to Ridley Scott about a possible sequel to Blade Runner.

The actor, who played Deckard in the 1982 sci-fi film, is famous for having disagreed with the director about whether his character was a ‘replicant’ or not in the original movie.

Despite his obvious troubles with the film, Ford confirmed there have been talks about a sequel.

“Yeah, we’ve been chatting about ,” he said. “I truly admire Ridley as a man and as a director, and I would be very happy to engage again with him in the further telling of this story.”

It was confirmed last year that original Blade Runner scribe Hampton Fancher came onboard to pen a screenplay that would take place “some years’ after the first film.  However, until this latest news from Harrison Ford, word on a second Blade Runner film has been quiet as of late

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.

    Mixed feelings about this. I would like a sequel but afraid it may lessen the original especially if its awful. However, I’ll probably be dead before they bring out the inevitable “final” cut of it. They’ll be doing a sequel to Tron next…oh!

      We all feel the same Craig – I remember as a kid hoping there’d be a sequel. Now in adulthood i realise that’s probably a bad idea… but still, i’ll be there on opening night like all the other fans. Praying it’s good. Marc

        It would be better if they had on original or legitimate idea to follow the story on that only a continuation after 30 years would be relevant and they’re not just doing it because they can. You’re right though, that’ll be me too queuing up on opening night with money in my hand and hope in my heart.
