New rumours of Luke Skywalker’s role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and flashback sequences

18 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning – Potential Spoilers Below

We’re less than 300 days away from Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but the reports and rumours are still coming in thick and fast. We’ve already had rumours that Darth Vader would be in the film in some capacity (possibly in a flashback) and now we have new rumours that back those claims up.

According to Making Star Wars, Robert Boulter (not announced in the cast list as of yet) has joined Star Wars: The Force Awakens to play a young Luke Skywalker in a flashback sequence. This would play into the opening of the movie, in which Han Solo (Harrison Ford), Finn (John Boyega) and Rey (Daisy Ridley) go to Rose’s Bar, owned by Rose (Lupita Nyong’o) who is a puppet similar to Yoda.

Below is a breakdown of the flashback:

Blade Runner 2: 10 Questions That Need Answering

28 February 2015 3:45 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Friday was a big news day for Blade Runner fans: not only was it confirmed that Harrison Ford would return as Rick Deckard – the antihero at the centre of Ridley Scott’s 1982 sci-fi masterpiece – for a Blade Runner sequel, but it was revealed that Denis Villeneuve, director of Prisoners and Enemy, was coming on board to helm the new film.

With this came the announcement that the screenplay – by original Blade Runner co-writer Hampton Fancher, along with Green Lantern screenwriter Michael Green – was ready to go, and that the film would begin shooting some time next year.

Now is going to be a time rife with speculation. After fans have first got past the fury they might feel over Blade Runner getting a sequel at all (the questions of “was there any need?” and “why does Ridley Scott keep doing this to his own films?” need to be out of »

Harrison Ford confirmed for Blade Runner sequel

27 February 2015 11:18 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Wake up! Time for a sequel! 

We knew Ridley Scott was working on a sequel to Blade Runner. Since the first rumors, few details emerged, but it seemed to have been worth the wait. Variety confirmed that a sequel is indeed in the works, with actor Harrison Ford back as replicant hunter Deckard. Phew! The sequel is meant to take place several decades after the events of the first one, which was set in the very near future 2019 Los Angeles.

However, Ridley Scott will not be back in the director's chair. Considering his latest efforts, it may not be such a bad thing for him to take a break, especially as his heir apparent is Quebec director Denis Villeneuve! Ridley will produce the film along with Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson, who noted Villeneuve's "singular talent". 

After Enemy and Prisoners, Villeneuve's next big American movie will be Sicario with Amy Adams and Benicio del Toro, »

‘Blade Runner 2′ a go with Harrison Ford confirmed, Denis Villenueve to direct

27 February 2015 8:23 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Ridley Scott nostalgia is having an awful good week. Back in November there were talks that a sequel to Blade Runner, Scott’s 1982 sci-fi masterpiece, was in the works, but that Scott would be unable to direct due to schedule conflicts with Prometheus 2.

Now however, a replacement has been found in Denis Villeneuve, Oscar winning director of Incendies, Prisoners and Enemy. Variety reports that the French-Canadian director is currently in talks, but that Harrison Ford, after calling the script, “the best thing he’s ever read“, is officially on board.

Ford of course is returning to the Star Wars franchise while Villeneuve, whose crime drama Sicario is set to arrive later this year, is an unusual choice for such a franchise as he’s never really directed sci-fi, or for that matter action.

Scott however is set to produce the film with Alcon Entertainment’s Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson. »

"I’m quite curious and excited," said Ford.

"...I think it would be very interesting to revisit the character."

As for the original film, Ford said, "I remember it with complication, but I'm not there to generate nostalgic moments, I'm there to do a job of work. I quite understand that everybody has an ambition when they come and do a film, and everyone's ambition may not be focused on the same thing." 

"It is happening", Scott confirmed about the "Blade Runner" sequel. "Harrison Ford? ... he was a 'Nexus-6' ('replicant') so we don't know how long he can live..."

Describing the opening scene of "Blade Runner 2", Scott said, "...there’ll be a vast »

Harrison Ford Officially Returns to 'Blade Runner,' New Director Named

27 February 2015 2:35 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's a good day to be a replicant: "Blade Runner," one of the most beloved and highly influential science fiction films of all time, will finally be getting its long-discussed sequel, set to shoot in the summer of 2016. And what's more - Harrison Ford will be back as futuristic private eye Rick Deckard in a story set "several decades" after the original film.

And, to add icing onto the cake, the producers have picked out probably the best filmmaker for this material not named Ridley Scott (and depending on your thoughts on Scott's return to the "Alien" franchise, "Prometheus," this could be a better choice) - "Prisoners" filmmaker Denis Villeneuve. In short: this movie is going to be awesome.

The press release laid out several more details, including that the screenplay for the new film was written by Michael Green and Hampton Fancher (who co-wrote the original film), from a »

Harrison Ford Will Return In Blade Runner 2!!

27 February 2015 12:36 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

It has been up in the air for quite sometime, but now it's official: Harrison Ford will be slipping on Rick Deckard's trenchcoat yet again for the long in development Blade Runner 2. On top of that announcement, Alcon Entertainment have also revealed Ridley Scott (he was originally signed on, but a full production slate forced him to drop out) will not be returning to direct the sequel, with Prisoners Denis Villeneuve taking his place. With Ford, a director, and a script from the original's co-writer Hampton Francher and Green Lantern's Michael Green (based on an idea by Scott and Francher), production has been set for a Summer 2016 start date. The new movie will take place several decades after the events of the original, and while earlier comments from Scott have suggested Ford will only be playing a small role, it is great to see the actor back in »

Harrison Ford Back For ‘Blade Runner 2′

27 February 2015 12:16 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Fans of Harrison Ford have been on quite the rollercoaster ride this past year. What seemed inconceivable has now happened – he’s returning as Han Solo in Star Wars Episode VII, and now it’s been confirmed he will reprise Rick Deckard for Blade Runner 2.

Original helmer and visionary Ridley Scott is not directing, but has devised the script concept with Hampton Fancher. It sees the action moved on to incorporate Ford’s age, though whether Deckard is going to be a main character remains to be seen. The new director is likely to be Denis Villeneuve, who scored a hit with Prisoners.

To say Villeneuve has a lot to live up to is an understatement. The franchise’s source material was Philip K Dick’s Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep and the resulting movie became one of the most influential sci-fi films of the twentieth century, despite a troubled production. »

The original film, directed by Ridley Scott, was set in a futuristic Los Angeles and focused on android-hunting police officer Rick Deckard (Ford), who struggles with the questions of morality and what it really means to be human.

Released in 1982, the film faced initially poor reviews and a tepid box office performance. After the release of Scott’s Director’s Cut in 1992 the film began to get the recognition it deserved as a critical piece of sci-fi »
