When it was confirmed in February that Harrison Ford will reprise his role as Rick Deckard in Alcon Entertainment's Blade Runner sequel, you may have immediately started wondering who would join him in the new neo-noir, as Deckard's sure to run into memorable characters of both the human and replicant varieties.

Ryan Gosling in Talks for 'Blade Runner' Sequel, Damien Chazelle's 'La La Land'

16 April 2015 12:40 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Denis Villeneuve's "Blade Runner" sequel, whether you want it or not, is quickly lining up its cast and the Canadian actor is in negotiations to star opposite Harrison Ford, who returns as burned-out bounty hunter Rick Deckard. Gosling may also sing and dance with Emma Stone in hot young "Whiplash" director Damien Chazelle's return to movie musical land, "La La Land." The Oscar nominee cut his teeth as a movie musical director with his black-and-white 16mm debut "Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench" (2009), which he began making while at Harvard. (Deadline has the scoop on "La La Land" as we await more details.)

Movie Review – Blade Runner: The Final Cut

2 April 2015 6:40 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Blade Runner: The Final Cut.

Directed By Ridley Scott.

Starring Harrison Ford, Sean Young, Rutger Hauer and M. Emmet Walsh.

Synopsis:

Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) is the titular Blade Runner, tasked to track down human-looking, A.I. “Replicants”

Blade Runner bombed in 1982. It has since become a cult, and now firmly established, classic of science-fiction film-making. Directed by Ridley Scott, only three years after Alien, Blade Runner created a world that had never been seen before. In fact, a dystopia that seems to eerily resonate in 2015, as video-billboards and voice-activated technology has only become more common. At the cinema, this is a sight to behold. The vast angular Tyrell Corporation and never-ending urban city-scape that opens the film is the world we see, while the bustling crowds and multi-cultural street food stalls dominate the smoky atmosphere on the ground. This is Los Angeles. 2019.

No description is needed for Blade Runner. »

Zhane Hall Will Play Meagan Good's Son in Fox TV's 'Minority Report' Project

30 March 2015 4:15 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Zhane Hall has joined the cast of Fox’s small screen version of the sci-fi movie based on the 1956 Philip K. Dick science fiction short story, "The Minority Report," which starred Tom Cruise, and was directed by Steven Spielberg. Fox's TV series version will be set 10 years after the events of the film, which concluded with law enforcement’s Precrime division being disbanded. In the show, a female detective who is haunted by her past, teams up with a Precog that's still plagued by visions (similar to the movie, although the genders of each character has been swapped). Zhane Hall joins the previously-cast Meagan Good, who stars as the female detective - Lara Vega. Hall will play her son in the series. Daniel London, Li Jun Li, and Laura Regan are also members of the cast. Hall, a new face, has only 1 credit to his name - the 2015 TV One movie »

The Americans, Ep. 3.09: “Do Mail Robots Dream of Electric Sheep?” uses murders for reflection

26 March 2015 3:47 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Americans, Season 3, Episode 9: “Do Mail Robots Dream of Electric Sheep?”

Written by Joshua Brand

Directed by Stephen Williams

Airs Wednesdays at 10pm (Et) on FX

While last week’s episode, “Divestment,” showcased the emotional violence caused by the characters of The Americans, this week’s Phillip K. Dick-referencing “Do Mail Robots Dream of Electric Sheep?” focuses on actual physical violence and its effects. It’s an idea that’s been explored thoroughly on the show (through the infamous suitcase scene, the tooth extraction, and many other aspects), but the most recent hour is particularly notable for the way in which it contrasts how various characters react to the murders (or forced suicides, which are more or less the same thing) for which they’re responsible. No major players in the series’ universe are lost, but the two killings are, in their own way, two of the more »

Review: 'The Americans' - 'Do Mail Robots Dream of Electric Sheep?'

25 March 2015 8:03 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "The Americans" coming up just as soon as I take my aspirin with beer... "Do you think doing this to me will make the world a better place?" -Betty "I'm sorry, but it will." -Elizabeth "That's what evil people tell themselves when they do evil things." -Betty Each week this season, "The Americans" finds some wonderful, horrible new way to punch its audience in the gut and leave us asking for more. There was Annelise getting folded into the suitcase. There was Philip listening to Yaz with Kimmie, and Elizabeth telling Paige about Gregory at the same time Philip was inviting Kimmie to pray with him. And just last week, there was Reuben necklacing his Afrikaner oppressor. This is a show that routinely presents its characters committing acts that are horrifying on physical, emotional and/or political levels, and it shows them doing it because they believe dearly in a cause, »

Bryan Singer Following X-Men: Apocalypse With This Sci-Fi Classic

4 March 2015 9:46 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Classic science fiction is experiencing a renaissance right now, and it's a pretty good time to be a fan of authors like Albert Bester or Phillip K. Dick, as both are returning to wow audiences in the near future. Of course, what gathering of classic sci-fi authors would be complete without a Robert Heinlein project? Bryan Singer has apparently been thinking that exact same thing, and he's got his first post X-Men project already picked out as a result. The Hollywood Reporter has found out that Singer is going to move on to make an adaptation of Heinlein's 1966 classic The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress after he finishes X-Men: Apocalypse - the final entry in the "First Class" trilogy of X-Men movies. Arrow executive producer, Davis Guggenheim, is going to be adapting the Heinlein story into a film titled Uprising. The lame attempt at a more modern title aside, Uprising »

Bryan Singer Tackling The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress Adaptation For Fox

4 March 2015 8:12 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Keeping one of its most lucrative directors in-house, Fox has set X-Men: Days of Future Past helmer Bryan Singer to tackle an adaptation of Robert A. Heinlein’s sci-fi classic The Moon is a Harsh Mistress, to be titled Uprising.

Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim has come aboard to adapt the book, which centers on a lunar colony’s revolt against rulers stationed back on Earth, echoing the historical conflict between the United States and the British Empire. It was nominated for the 1966 Nebula Award, honoring the best American writing in fantasy and science fiction, and won the Hugo Award for best science fiction novel in 1967.

Two previous attempts to adapt Heinlein’s novel – one at DreamWorks with a script by Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, and another by Phoenix Pictures involving Harry Potter producer David Heyman – failed, with the rights reverting to the author’s estate.

Singer is also attached in a producing capacity, »

Los Angeles (AP) Harrison Ford is set to reprise his role as Rick Deckard in a sequel to the dystopian, neo-noir "Blade Runner,'' more than 31 years after the film first premiered.

Alcon Entertainment announced Ford's role Thursday and said Scott will serve as an executive producer on the sequel. Production on the film will begin in the summer of 2016.

Blade Runner Sequel Director Announced, Harrison Ford’s Return Confirmed

26 February 2015 7:08 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

After all these years, the story of Rick Deckard will continue. A Blade Runner sequel started to pick up steam back in 2011 when it was announced that Ridley Scott would return to direct. While Scott is still creatively involved, it has been revealed that he'll be passing the torch to another director. What is still a big surprise, even after his involvement in the latest Star Wars film, is that Harrison Ford is set to reprise his role as Deckard:

Press Release via /Film: "Los Angeles, CA, February 26, 2015 — Harrison Ford will reprise his celebrated role of Rick Deckard in the sequel to Alcon Entertainment’s Blade Runner and Academy Award nominee Denis Villeneuve to (Prisoners, Incendies) is in negotiations to direct, it was announced by Alcon co-founders and co-ceo’s Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson.

Blade Runner Sequel Confirmed, Harrison Ford To Return

26 February 2015 6:36 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Deadline is reporting that at long last, the Blade Runner sequel has been confirmed, with Harrison Ford set to reprise his role as Rick Deckard. Unfortunately, Ridley Scott will not return as director, but in his place will be Prisoners helmer Denis Villeneuve.

The plan is for production to get underway in summer 2016 with Hampton Fancher (who co-wrote the original) and Michael Green penning the script. Plot details are, of course, scarce, but from what we understand the sequel will take place several decades after the events of the original (which makes sense given Ford’s age).

“We are honored that Harrison is joining us on this journey with Denis Villeneuve, who is a singular talent, as we experienced personally on Prisoners,” Alcon Entertainment’s Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson said. “Hampton and Michael, with Ridley Scott, have crafted a uniquely potent and faithful sequel to one of the most »

Boyhood” director Richard Linklater is in early talks to direct the adaptation of the Maria Semple novel “Where'd You Go, Bernadette.”

Emily S. Whitten: The Minds of Philip K. Dick

24 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Before I get started on this week’s musings, here are a couple of housekeeping items:

1) Have I mentioned lately how great the other writers here at ComicMix are? It’s probably been awhile, so let me take a quick minute to do so (again). If you somehow found ComicMix via me and primarily read my column here on the site, a) Cool, thanks! and b) I highly recommend you give the other folks here a try. Even in just reading through the last few days of columns, from Mindy Newell’s thoughts on Battlestar Galactica to Marc Alan Fishman’s discussion  of guarding one’s creative integrity versus going for a payday and wider success, to Molly Jackson’s rejoicing over the awesomeness that is Agent Carter, I am reminded of how quality the folks who write for this site are, and how lucky I am to be amongst them. »
