Despite earlier reports – including from the man himself – that Ridley Scott would be directing Blade Runner 2 (here) it seems that now that’s not the case…
Speaking to Variety, Scott said he will be producing, but not directing, the movie now. This is probably due to his workload including Prometheus 2 and The Martian.
He does however say that filming should begin within the year and – sit down before reading this – Harrison Ford is back!
Although Ford will only come into the movie in the final act, Scoot says: “Harrison is very much part of this one, but really it’s about finding him. He comes in in the third act.”
Well, the glass, it seems, is indeed half full… who’s still excited?
