Empire Magazine has polled over 250,000 obsessive movie fans to come up with the 301 greatest movies ever made, a list that is led by the 1980 classic Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back. This same poll was conducted back in 2008, which, at the time, found The Godfather taking top honors. It has now slipped into second place.

“Yeah, we’ve been chatting about it… 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.”
Oh my God, oh my God!! Excuse me, I’m fangirling like a boss right now. Han Solo, Indiana Jones AND Rick Deckard may return? I know it has been said before but it is a lot more exciting to hear it from DA MAN himself.

Even with Ridley Scott back in the director’s chair and original writer Hampton Fancher on script duty, the idea of a Blade Runner sequel caused more trepidation than word that replicants were running loose for most fans. News that Green Lantern co-writer Michael Green is being brought aboard to work on a new draft may not help matters.
Of course, it’s far to early to judge a film when no one has seen so much as a piece of concept art, let alone a trailer, and things are still at a very early stage on this one. While Scott has talked about his vision for certain scenes, no plot details have leaked yet beyond the basic idea that it will be set a few years after the 1982 original and we don’t know whether Harrison Ford will be involved in any capacity.
In addition to work on Lantern, Green has also contributed to the unproduced Flash film and The Fantastic Four, and he most recently worked on Robopocalypse’s screenplay with Steven Spielberg – which should give us some confidence. He also did at least one draft of Moses project Gods And Kings, so let’s hope he can do justice to the original film.
