Harrison Ford in talks for new Blade Runner movie?
Could Harrison Ford be joining up with Ridley Scott again for the new Blade Runner film?
Well, crikey. It’s been the best part of a year since word first broke about Alcon Entertainment’s plans to put together a new Blade Runner film. And, with Ridley Scott on board, too, and planning to direct, it’s led to a fair amount of speculation as to whether we were looking at a prequel or sequel here.
The line coming out from the project was originally that Scott would be the only person returning, though, but it seems that might not be the case. In fact, we might just be seeing Deckard again.
For, according to Twitch Film, “Harrison Ford has entered into early talks to join the new Blade Runner”.
Obviously, this hasn’t been confirmed yet, and given Ford’s comments about Blade Runner in the past and his thoughts on it, it’d be something of a surprise anyway. But if true? Well, it’d suggest that the new Blade Runner film might just be next on Ridley Scott’s always-packed schedule, once he’s done and dusted with Prometheus.
The assumption would be that the new film takes place after the first, given that Harrison Ford is a much older man these days. But that’s not necessarily a given, considering who and what Deckard is. Furthermore, we might just be looking at a small cameo for him, rather than a large leading role. No details have thus been forthcoming, though.
We’ll keep you posted, of course.
