Harrison Ford back for more Blade Runner!
Despite not working well with Ridley Scott on the set of Blade Runner back in the early 80’s actor Harrison ford is nonetheless in talks with Alcon Entertainment for a role in the Blade Runner sequel that was announced last year.
The buzz on the street is that he won’t play a lead role but instead might merely shed light on the origin of the Nexus 6 / 7 programs. As Ridley Scott spoilered a few years back that Rick Deckard was a replicant, meaning he would be a Nexus 7 or one up from Rutger Hauer’s Nexus 6.
It is also reported that the story is already well-developed but the studio is still looking for a writer which I think is a contradiction in terms.
Harrison Ford himself has so far merely stated, “I wouldn’t feel bad if I were not invited to the party.” Which is probably an allusion to his difficult relation with director Ridley Scott.
Now word yet on a firm release date, but don’t expect this one before 2014.
