    Over the weekend, reports surfaced that Harrison Ford was in talks to return as Deckard in Ridley Scott's brewing "Blade Runner" sequel. The news came as a major shock, notably because when the project was first announced, it was said it would be "a total reinvention." W...

    Harrison Ford Allegedly In Talks To Play Deckard Again In Ridley Scott's 'Blade Runner' Follow-Up

    One of the bigger news stories of last year was the report that, on the back of his sort-of-return to the "Alien" franchise for "Prometheus," which is set in the same universe, Ridley Scott was planning to go back to his other sci-fi classic, attaching himself to a new "Blad...

    Ridley Scott Says His Second 'Blade Runner' Is "Liable To Be A Sequel"

    As if he didn't blow enough fanboy minds when it was announced that he'd be making an "Alien" spinoff thingy with "Prometheus," Ridley Scott positively left brains in a puddle on the floor when this summer he decided, he was going to head back to the world of "B...

    Wow: Ridley Scott To Follow 'Prometheus' With 'Blade Runner' Sequel

    Update: Producers for the film tell 24 Frames that realistically, the earliest this will shoot is 2013 as a writer still needs to be hired, a script to be written and a film to cast -- a process which will take 18 months at least. And oh yeah, don't expect Harrison Ford. "In no way do I speak for Ri...

    Producers Of 'Blade Runner' Prequel & Sequel Haven't Met With Ridley Scott (But Would Like To)

    Prequel Would Be Set In An "Alternate Universe"By now, you've probably heard that in Hollywood's never ending quest to sequelize, franchise and exploit any popular title they can, Alcon Entertainment has snagged the screen rights to "Blade Runner" from producer Bud Yorkin for future sequel/prequel projects.

    Alcon Entertainment Secures Rights To 'Blade Runner' Prequels & Sequels

    What's that? You have an iconic piece of cinema? But what? It's only a stand-alone piece of film, but it's so cherished you could milk it for a zillion more dollars because it's so well respected and beloved and you haven't done that yet? Cha-ching! Sorry, people this is how it now works. Ridley Scott's "Blade Runner" has just too much damn brand equity to simply squander in the pantheon of words and sentiments that say, "lord, that's such a classic movie." Modern business thinking demands that you quantify brand equity into some kind of capital and thus more "Blade Runner" films await us even though most of us are thinking we should all just...
