Blade Runner 2 confirmed: new director, Harrison Ford back

26 February 2015 10:26 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ridley Scott won't be directing Harrison Ford - but we know who will be. Harrison Ford is also 100% confirmed to return.

Much of the news this week has been dominated by the new Alien film that Neill Blomkamp is set to direct. But, in one of those coincidental turns, the news week is ending with a sequel to another Ridley Scott sci-fi classic. Blade Runner 2 is definitely happening.

It's been known for some time that a sequel to Blade Runner was in development, but it's now been 100% confirmed. Alcon has confirmed that the film is due to start shooting in the summer of 2016, based around a screenplay from Hampton Fancher and Michael Green, with Fancher and Ridley Scott coming up with the idea for the movie.

The new film will be set several decades after the first, and it's also now been officially confirmed that Harrison Ford will be turning »

Denis Villeneuve to direct Blade Runner sequel, Harrison Ford stars

26 February 2015 9:10 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Denis Villeneuve has been announced as the director of the Blade Runner sequel.

The Prisoners filmmaker's involvement was confirmed in a statement released by Alcon Entertainment on Thursday (February 26), The Wrap reports.

Ridley Scott will return to produce the sci-fi sequel alongside Alcon's Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson using a screenplay written by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green. Harrison Ford is also confirmed to reprise his role of Rick Deckard from the original movie, released in 1982.

In a joint statement, Kosove and Johnson said: "We are honoured that Harrison is joining us on this journey with Denis Villeneuve, who is a singular talent, as we experienced personally on Prisoners.

"Hampton and Michael, with Ridley Scott, have crafted a uniquely potent and faithful sequel to one of the most universally celebrated films of all time, and we couldn't be more thrilled with this amazing, creative team."

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 »

New Awards Season Rules: Would more nominees help solve the Oscars' diversity problem?

26 February 2015 6:25 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Excuse us if we go out on a limb here, but something tells us the collective brain trust at The Academy is glad this awards season has mercifully come to an end. After an incredibly diverse 86th Academy Awards ceremony, where "12 Years a Slave" took Best Picture, a Mexican filmmaker won Best Director, Lupita Nyong'o earned a Best Supporting Actress Oscar and John Ridley won Best Adapted Screenplay, the Oscars appeared to take a step back in 2015. It wasn't just that "Selma" was snubbed in a number of major categories. The #OscarsSoWhite hashtag became a historical footnote that will haunt the Academy for years (and, trust, it will be back again if the public wills it). But it had more to do with all white nominees in the acting categories than just "Selma" itself. This also brought to light that it was yet another year without a female nominee in the Best Director category, »

It's Chappie's day of reckoning in brand new featurette from the Hugh Jackman film

26 February 2015 2:13 PM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

It’s been a big couple of weeks for South African/Canadian filmmaker Neill Blomkamp. The District 9 director, a noted super-fan of the Alien franchise, has officially signed on to direct the upcoming Alien sequel. On top of that, his latest film, Chappie, is rolling out into theatres – and hey, it which also stars Sigourney Weaver – Alien’s core hero – in a supporting role!

Chappie follows the story of an old police droid who is stolen, reprogrammed, and becomes the first fully independent, sentient robot. Unfortunately, by the looks of the below featurette and trailer, Chappie will be getting into a lot of unwanted trouble.

Blomkamp’s film opens in theatres next Friday (March 6) with a cast that also includes X-Men’s Hugh Jackman,Slumdog Millionaire’s Dev Patel and Blompkamp regular Sharlto Copley – obviously in a mo-cap suit – as the titular robot Chappie.

Sequel Buzz: Schwarzenegger Will Be Back for 'Terminator 6,' Unexpected Inspiration for 'Ghostbusters'

25 February 2015 6:50 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

There are some franchises that will never work without their main star, and that's the truth for the Terminator movies and Arnold Schwarzenegger. The upcoming Terminator: Genisys is a reboot with new actors in every role except that of the T-800, which will again be played by the Austrian action hero. Occasionally others have stood-in for the part, but the series has used, and likely always will use, Arnie's likeness, even after he's dead. And unlike Hugh Jackman and Wolverine, Schwarzenegger will probably really play the Terminator for the rest of his life. He's at least on board for the next installment, to follow this summer's Genisys, according to the site TheArnoldFans. When asked if he'd appear in the...

U.K. Soap Star Ben Hardy Set To Join X-Men: Apocalypse

25 February 2015 8:58 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It seems that the recent headline-grabbing live episodes of U.K soap opera Eastenders have provided something of a showcase for series regular Ben Hardy, as The Wrap reports that he is now in talks for a significant role in X-Men: Apocalypse. While Hardy has 188 episodes of the soap under his belt, he had apparently screentested for the X-Men role of Cyclops, before being rumoured for the role of Angel. The part he may ultimately play in the movie, however, is described as “key” and “important.”

X-Men: Apocalypse is the upcoming sequel to 2014’s box office hit, X-Men: Days Of Future Past, and is the newest instalment in the X-Men franchise. Based on the Marvel comic series, the titular superhero team are comprised of mutants – born with superhuman abilities and spurned by humanity – who fight for peace and equality. The franchise currently comprises of five films, with two spinoff films »

Eastenders Star Joins X-Men: Apocalypse In “Significant” Role

25 February 2015 6:47 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

BBC / Marvel Comics

Eastenders actor Ben Hardy is swapping Walford for Bryan Singer’s big screen X-Men world.

After missing out on the role of young Scott Summers, Ben Hardy is joining Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse in an unknown role. Variety is reporting that the mystery character is a “significant” one from the Marvel comic book world.

Given Hardy’s appearance, the early speculation is that the role in question could be that of Warren Worthington III. Commonly known by the name of Angel, the character has also had his darker moments alongside the villain Apocalypse, in which he then has the Archangel moniker.

Already confirmed for Singer’s next venture into the X-world are returns for James McAvoy as Charles Xavier, Michael Fassbender as Magneto, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique, Nicholas Hoult as Beast, Rose Byrne as Moira McTaggert, and Evan Peters as Quicksilver. New additions include Tye Sheridan as the young Scott Summers/Cyclops, »
