BREAKING: HARRISON FORD IN EARLY TALKS FOR RIDLEY SCOTT'S NEW BLADE RUNNER
Posted by JPX
From twitchfilm, Is Deckard coming back?
In March of 2011 word broke that Alcon Entertainment and Warner Brothers had teamed up to return to the world of Ridley Scott's classic scifi Blade Runner. In following weeks Scott himself would sign on to direct the project - it is widely expected to be Scott's next project after Prometheus, though he's got a number in the works so scheduling could always change - but the official line has always been that Scott would be the only returning alumni, that the plan was a completely fresh reboot.
In fact, producer Andrew Kosove made this abundantly clear in an August interview with the LA Times, saying:
In no way do I speak for Ridley Scott but if you're asking me will this movie have anything to do with Harrison Ford, the answer is no. This is a total reinvention and in my mind that means doing everything fresh, including casting.
Well, either Kosove was throwing up a smoke screen or Scott disagrees.
Twitch has learned that Harrison Ford has entered into early talks to join the new Blade Runner. While this is still very early stages and it is quite possible that things won't work out the obvious implication is that what we are looking at is not a reboot but a direct sequel to the original.
