Alcon offers Harrison Ford Blade Runner 2 - by press release
Alcon Entertainment confirms the new Blade Runner movie will be a sequel - and invites Harrison Ford to join the project...
Well, this is a new one. It's no secret that Alcon Entertainment is working on a new Blade Runner film, which it has original director Ridley Scott involved in. However, it was unclear - and it remains unclear - as to whether Harrison Ford will feature in the new movie. But that hasn't stopped Alcon Entertainment releasing a press release whereby it basically asks Harrison Ford very nicely to take part.
According to The Wrap, the release said that "we believe that [writers] Hampton Fancher and Michael Green have crafted with Ridley Scott an extraordinary sequel to one of the greatest films of all time... We would be honored, and we are hopeful, that Harrison will be part of our project".
Those words are attributed to Alcon's CEOs Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson in the statement.
You might note too that they explicitly call the new Blade Runner project a "sequel" - not a prequel, as had been suggested. Naturally, no further details are available on the film yet though.
