“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.

The special feature reveals a few lines of text written by Peter Weyland (the elderly CEO of Weyland Corporation that funds the expedition aboard the scientific vessel Prometheus).

We have recently reported that Ridley Scott revealed that the protagonist of the new film will be a female. However, in a more recent interview, Scott has said Harrison Ford will likely appear in the ‘Blade Runner’ Sequel because that would be “amusing”. The appearance will probably be only a cameo but we still have to wait a long time.

Restored from its original six track elements, Blade Runner finally includes a glorious audio track, righting the wrongs of all of the previous releases. Whilst occasionally, the limited fidelity shows evidence of its 30 years of age, overall this is a really killer audio track which transcends its age.
