Ridley Scott NOT directing Blade Runner sequel and guess who’s back!

November 25th, 2014 by Marc Comments


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?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
