Attn Ridley Scott: Katy Perry Would Like To Play Rachael In 'Blade Runner 2'

While “Blade Runner 2” is still a worrisome specter on the horizon for fans of the original, gaining “Green Lantern” writer Michael Green to pen the screenplay this past spring, it’s still so far away (Ridley Scott‘s next film is the Moses flick “Exodus“) that it’s mostly rumor and speculation that’s going to drive news of the movie for the next little while. It will also give budding actors and actresses a chance to openly campaign for roles in the movie, and one starlet isn’t missing an opportunity.

Thespian and pop star Katy Perry would like to go sci-fi for “Blade Runner 2,” and she hopes that her performances in “The Smurfs” saga will open the door. Really. “With films, I hope to win you all over with animation and then do other films,” Perry told Metro. “I am really interested in comedy, and I would really love to play Rachael in ‘Blade Runner 2,’ if Ridley would just call!”

You can’t knock someone for having ambition we suppose, and earlier this year, Sean Young claimed that she met with Ridley Scott and that she was under the impression none of the original cast would be back, so we’d wager that Rachael part is up for grabs (though we wonder how Young might feel when she learns that Harrison Ford might pop up).

Anyway, something to think about/haunt your dreams. You can see Perry’s acting skills on display this weekend in “The Smurfs 2” or maybe just watch this Popchips extended ad/short. [via DigitalSpy]
