Ford on Blade Runner 2

I truly admire Ridley

Will we see a Blade Runner Sequel?

When Prometheus arrived Ridley Scott was very talkative about a sequels and that perhaps there may be a Blade Runner sequel next him. Well the news on said project has been quiet as of late, but IGN got something out of Harrison Ford on the project.

Ford said in a recent interview, during a Ender’s Game press junket, that “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.” Check out the video interview below. 

Scott’s next film is The Counselor with Brad Pitt and Michael Fassbender, which will be released October 25th, 2013. Scott is already in production of his Moses epic called Exodus which features Christian Bale (The Dark Knight) and Joel Edgerton (The Great Gasby). So does the 75 year old director have another Blade Runner in him? If anyone can do it, it is Ridley Scott. I still hoping for a another Prometheus tale.

 Why anyone would want to see a blade runner sequel is beyond me. Some things are best left unsaid, and this is one of them. An old HF flying around in the Falcon I can deal with for the kitsch factor. But an old HF trying to pull off Deckard again? That's an accident I don't want to drive by. If they wanted to do this they should have done it 20 years ago. Don't turn another classic into another cash grab. That's what SW is for!

I will gladly accept HF as deckard as long as it brings us more info on the replicants and continues to bind the 2 time periods of BR and alien together.

When Deckard and Rachel flew off into the sunset that was the perfect ending.  Not knowing what would happen to them was the best option.  Because, quite frankly, they didn't have much hope.  They were most likely to be hunted down by Blade Runners and go out in a hail of bullets like Bonnie and Clyde.

Somebody wrote a book as a sequel and, knowing that Blade Runner was one of my favorite films, my parents got it for me for Christmas.  It was awful.  It posited that Deckard had put Rachel in suspended animation due to she was about to die after 4 years and spent all his time staring at her through the little window in the suspended animation capsule.  Also, Priss was actually a human, not a replicant, so he was being hunted down as a murderer.  Just dreadful, depressing stuff and afterwards I wished I hadn't read it.

I fear that any new movie would be similar.  You can SAY that no badly done sequel can ruin the original and that's objectively true but if it changes your feelings about the original it can ruin it in a subjective manner.

Blegh!

If it's going to be a convoluted mess like Prometheus then no thanks. Blade Runner is fine on its own and there's no need to ruin it with a crappy sequel. Alien 3, Alien Resurrection and AVP already ruined the Alien franchise so Prometheus was no great loss, just an epic disappointment. 

I believe that it is impossible to recreate the film-noir cinematography that gave BR such a unique ambiance.  I hope they don't opt for a cash grab and simply leave well enough alone.

If this gets a green light then the working title should be Blade Runner 2: Replicating Cash

Agree with most everybody: it doesn't need a sequel. Just leave it alone.

 

 

That being said, if Ridley made a sequel I would see it anyway.

It will be interesting to see what this world is like 30 years down the line..

The big question is will Guy Pearce be playing Peter Weyland..?

Please DO NOT make a Blade Runner sequel! It is a complete masterpiece.

If the studio wants cash from the Blade Runner franchise, they should just keep releasing updated versions for personal enjoyment, new generations are still discovering this film and Blade Runner is inspiring them in the same way since the original home release.

They are getting the writer from Green Lantern to create a screenplay? Since when was the Green Lantern such a deep philosophical film? This sounds just as bad as getting the writer from Lost to write Prometheus.

There is a big difference to Alien and Blade Runner and why sequels make sense and why they do not.

The questions raised in Alien are unresolved plotlines that can only be answered with other films.

The questions raised in Blade Runner can only be answered by the viewer...

The are certain actors that just suck at interviews.  Ford is one of the actors.
