Blade Runner Sequel in the Works

All the momentum that Ridley Scott’s kinda-sequel to Alien, Prometheus, may be reaching it’s peak soon, but chances are good that Scott’s going to have something else to keep his momentum going, as Hampton Fancher, the original scriptwriter for Scott’s 1982 sci-fi epic Blade Runner, is currently in talks to develop and write a sequel to the landmark movie.

There’s very little info provided in the press release when it comes to the plot, but it did state that the new film will be taking place years after the first film has concluded. The PR also mentions that Fancher and Scott originally intended Blade Runner to be the first in a series of films incorporating the themes and characters found in Phillip K. Dick’s novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

Ridley Scott also confirmed that Harrison Ford won’t be returning for the sequel, and as an aside, also let it slip that he’s very much interested in doing a sequel to Prometheus, if the film does well at the box office this summer.
