Ridley Scott ready to tell a new “Blade Runner” story


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Ridley Scott is enjoying a career retrospective, of sorts. Instead of simply revisiting his past accomplishments, however, the director’s angling to add to their legacies with prequels, sequels or whatever else studios will let him try.

As the director continues to toil away on “Prometheus,” which indirectly is tied to Scott’s iconic “Alien,” news is breaking over on Deadline that Sir Ridley wants to do another “Blade Runner” movie. Scott will make the film with Alcon Entertainment, though it’s unclear at this point whether this will be a prequel or a sequel that somehow could involve a much-older Harrison Ford. As the article points out, the original story, based on Philip K. Dick’s short story, took place in 2019, giving Scott the ability to tell a prequel while still staying in the “future.” Strange.

Truthfully, the whole concept is strange, and it suggests that Scott is running out of ideas. Revisiting “Alien” and “Blade Runner” after cranking out yet another “Robin Hood” adventure? Where is the Sir Ridley who shattered new ground in classic genres?

Still, there are a lot of unresolved plot points hat could be explored in a new “Blade Runner” film, so I guess we’ll wait and see where Scott chooses to go with the material.
