As usual, Ridley Scott is juggling five thousand projects at once. He’s currently wrapping up “Exodus: Gods And Kings” for release later this year, and this fall he’ll begin rolling on the sci-fi film “The Martian” starring Matt Damon. But what about the long developing sequels to “Blade Runner” and “Prometheus“? Well, Scott promises both are coming, and he says that at least from a writing standpoint, they are ready to go.
“It’s written and it’s damn good,” Scott told EW about “Blade Runner: Title To Be Determined.” “Of course it involves Harrison [Ford], who is a survivor after all these years, despite the accident. So yes, that will happen.”
That being said, Ford’s involvement isn’t confirmed by, at least not officially, but we suppose if the actor is willing to come back for “Star Wars,” he will do anything. He’s been rumored to participate in the movie for so long that it’s pretty much a given. Scott says it will get rolling “probably after [‘The Martian.’]” So shooting could start sometime next year? It could very well, as he’s known to work fast.
As for “Prometheus 2: Terraforming Boogaloo,” Scott confirms it also has a script in place. But like everything else, scheduling needs to be sorted. “That’s the problem,” Scott says. “I’ve got a lot of ducks in a row. But they’re all written.”
