Ridley Scott: ‘Blade Runner’ Sequel Is Best Script Harrison Ford Has ‘Ever Read’

13 December 2014 9:50 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If you’re worried that the upcoming “Blade Runner” sequel won’t measure up to the 1982 sci-fi cult classic, rest assured. Harrison Ford apparently thinks the script is “the best thing (he’s) ever read.”

Director Ridley Scott told MTV News that the screenplay is not only “written and ready to go,” but that Ford loves it.

“I sent him this (script) and he said, ‘Wow, this is the best thing I’ve ever read,’ so it’s very relevant to what happened (in) the first one,” Scott told MTV News. “I’m not just doing a sequel with lots of action and see how far we can go with the special effects because you can’t really. ‘Blade Runner’ kind of landed on a somehow very credible future. And it’s very difficult to change that because it’s been so influential with everything else.”

Ridley Scott on 'Prometheus' and 'Blade Runner' Sequels

11 December 2014 12:08 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Ridley Scott is doing the press rounds for Exodus: gods and Kings, his retelling of the Moses story from the bible. MTV sat down with him , Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton, but the main focus of this clip is Ridley Scott, who reveals that he doesn't read press.

So, he's probably fine with you knowing these tidbits from Prometheus 2 and Blade Runner 2.

On Prometheus 2's focus on Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and the head of David (Michael Fassbender):

You have to. You can’t have a person go off into the galaxy and have a person who’s still got his head off. Once that head goes back on, he’s really dangerous. But, he’s also very seductive. So maybe he’ll persuade her to help him put the head back.

And on Blade Runner 2 and Harrison Ford's involvement:

Harrison and I really get on rather well. »

Ridley Scott Reveals Details For Prometheus 2 And Blade Runner Sequel

11 December 2014 10:50 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Exodus: Gods And Kings opening this week, Ridley Scott is once more back in the limelight – as are Prometheus 2 and the Blade Runner sequel. Long-rumored, the two films seem to have been in the offing for years, but Scott has been rather short on the details. That’s changing, though, as the director revealed to MTV News (via Screen Rant) some of what he has planned on the two films.

Discussing the possibilities for Prometheus 2, here’s what Scott had to say about the return of Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and android David (Michael Fassbender):

You have to. You can’t have a person go off into the galaxy and have a person who’s still got his head off. Once that head goes back on, he’s really dangerous, but he’s also very seductive. So maybe he’ll persuade her to help him put the head back. »

Scott Talks "Prometheus," "Runner" Sequels

11 December 2014 8:43 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Continuing press rounds for the Biblical epic "Exodus: Gods and Kings," filmmaker Ridley Scott offered some more updates on both the "Prometheus" and "Blade Runner" sequels.

Speaking with MTV News, Scott confirms "Prometheus 2" will pick up directly or soon after the ending of the first film with the story of Shaw (Noomi Rapace) and the android David (Michael Fassbender):

"You have to. You can't have a person go off into the galaxy and have a person who's still got his head off. Once that head goes back on, he's really dangerous, but he's also very seductive. So maybe he'll persuade her to help him put the head back."

He also confirmed he's still undecided on directing the "Blade Runner" sequel as reported a few weeks back, but says the script is written and ready to go. He also spoke about Harrison Ford's involvement as apparently the search »

Ridley Scott Talks 'Prometheus 2' and 'Blade Runner 2'

10 December 2014 1:10 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While doing press for his upcoming Biblical adventure Exodus: Gods and Kings, director Ridley Scott offered a few updates on his upcoming sequels Prometheus 2 and the Untitled Blade Runner Project. We reported last month that Prometheus 2 will feature a new alien, but there is still very little we know about the story, except that Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender are returning as Shaw and the android David. During an interview with MTV, Ridley Scott revealed that the sequel will follow Shaw and David's story.

"You have to. You can't have a person go off into the galaxy and have a person who's still got his head off. Once that head goes back on, he's really dangerous, but he's also very seductive. So maybe he'll persuade her to help him put the head back."

The filmmaker also confirmed that the script for his Untitled Blade Runner Project is, "written and ready to go, »

Ridley Scott Dicusses His Blade Runner And Prometheus Sequels

10 December 2014 6:55 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

While chatting to MTV about his new biblical epic Exodus: Gods And Kings, Sir Ridley Scott let a few story details slip about his planned sequel to Prometheus. It sounds as if David the android -- excuse me, artificial person -- (Michael Fassbender) will try to persuade Elizabeth (Noomi Rapace) to find a new body for his severed head at some point as they travel through space together. As you would! Another sci-fi sequel much longer in the making is Scott's Blade Runner follow up. The director talks a little about the design aspect, and claims Harrison Ford told him it's the best script he's ever read. Check out the video interview below, as Sir Ridley also has some choice words for his critics! Get More: Movie Trailers, Celebrity News »

Foreign Actors Forge Global Careers After Film Breakthroughs

4 December 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As any seasoned observer of the annual award circuit knows, the campaign trail for performers in foreign-language films is significantly rockier than it is for the rest. Of the 200 performances that secured an Oscar nomination in the past decade, a grand total of five are featured in films that aren’t principally in English. Even established crossover names have trouble gaining awards traction for subtitled fare: Witness Marion Cotillard, a rare foreign-language Oscar winner for “La Vie en Rose,” trailing this year’s perceived lead actress front-runners despite universal acclaim for her performance in “Two Days, One Night.”

For international newcomers, then, it’s that much harder to achieve such recognition — it’s been 10 long years since Colombian first-timer Catalina Sandino Moreno landed alongside Hilary Swank and Kate Winslet in the lead actress Oscar race for her sterling work in helmer-scribe Joshua Marston’s “Maria Full of Grace.”

The 35 Greatest Murder Mystery Movies Ever Made

28 November 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Murder mysteries are so commonplace on TV that each week offers seemingly dozens of them on police procedural series and detective shows. But in the movies, whodunits are surprisingly rare, and really good ones rarer still. There's really only a handful of movies that excel in offering the viewer the pleasure of solving the crime along with a charismatic sleuth, often with an all-star cast of suspects hamming it up as they try not to appear guilty.

One of the best was "Murder on the Orient Express," released 40 years ago this week, on November 24, 1974. Like many films adapted from Agatha Christie novels, this one featured an eccentric but meticulous investigator (in this case, Albert Finney as Belgian epicure Hercule Poirot), a glamorous and claustrophobic setting (here, the famous luxury train from Istanbul to Paris), and a tricky murder plot with an outrageous solution. The film won an Oscar for passenger »

Prometheus 2 to feature "a fresher form of alien", says Ridley Scott

21 November 2014 7:52 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ridley Scott has promised to bring in "a fresher form of alien" in Prometheus 2.

The filmmaker previously revealed that the classic Hr Giger xenomorph alien would not be featuring in the sci-fi sequel.

Scott told The Australian that he wants the follow-up to "[get away] from gods and dragons and s**t".

"If I see one more dragon I'm going to shoot myself. Stop the dragons," he said.

"[The original Alien] is the definitive dragon and he's a motherf**ker. The alien's real which is why it's probably one of the scariest monsters in film history. So with Prometheus 2 what I'm trying to do is reintroduce a fresher form of alien in the third act."

Noomi Rapace and Michael Fassbender are expected to reprise their roles as Elizabeth Shaw and android David.

Green Lantern's Michael Green is working on the script for the film, which has been dated for release in March 2016 by 20th Century Fox. »

Ridley Scott to “reintroduce a fresher form of alien” in Prometheus 2

20 November 2014 1:24 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in September, Ridley Scott ruled out the possibility of the Xenomorph making an appearance in Prometheus 2, and now the filmmaker has been speaking a little more about the sci-fi sequel, stating that he intends on reintroducing “a fresher form of alien.”

[Prometheus 2] is fresh and getting away from gods and dragons and shit,” Scott tells The Australian. “If I see one more dragon I’m going to shoot myself. Stop the dragons. [The original Alien] is the definitive dragon and he’s a motherf*cker. The alien’s real which is why it’s probably one of the scariest monsters in film history. So with Prometheus 2 what I’m trying to do is reintroduce a fresher form of alien in the third act.”

20 November 2014 8:29 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

About two months ago, Ridley Scott offered a Prometheus 2 update confirming that the script was being written, that he had “15 drafts evolving” and also that the iconic Xenomorphs will not be part of the sequel.  He noted that “there’s only so much snarling you can do” and that it’s time to do something more interesting, but left it at that.  However, in a more recent interview, Scott gives up a little more information and it teases the direction he could be going in with aliens in the sequel. Hit the jump to find out what Noomi Rapace’s Elizabeth Shaw could encounter in Prometheus 2.

Scott To Give Us A New Breed of Alien in 'Prometheus 2'

20 November 2014 7:56 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

*Spoiler Alert! If you have not seen Prometheus, you shouldn't proceed, as this article contains a spoiler about the final act*

While Prometheus actress Noomi Rapace has stated that we may be seeing God and The Devil in that film's sequel, director Ridley Scott is out clarifying what we should actually expect. Bloody-Disgusting is reporting that the director has promised that the film will feature an all-new alien creature in the film's third act.

Prometheus 2 Will Introduce A ‘Fresher Form Of Alien’ Says Ridley Scott

19 November 2014 2:00 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ridley Scott’s sort-of Alien prequel, Prometheus, landed with a divisive thunk back in 2012. Despite a mixed reception, both its detractors and fans are eager to see where exactly Scott will take the two remaining survivors for the sequel, Prometheus 2. More importantly, however, is what type of monsters can we expect?

The director has made no bones about the fact that there will be no xenomorphs in the film. Nope, not even one. As the tears began to crust up our sodden cheeks, Noomi Rapace referenced the notion of god and the devil taking over the villainous components. However, whether we’ll actually see a trident-wielding Satan going at it with a bearded white chap seems relegated to the rumour mill dustbin, for now at least.

Scott recently spoke out in an interview with The Australian about the nature of the beast. Whether or not he’s utterly serious, »

Prometheus star Noomi Rapace revealed in an interview last month that the sequel, Prometheus 2, may feature "God or the devil" as the villains, after another report from September claimed that the classic Alien Xenomorphs will not be featured in this follow-up. Director Ridley Scott offered a new update, revealing that he is introducing a "fresher form" of the original Alien in the third act of Prometheus 2.

"It's fresh, getting away from gods and dragons and shit. If I see one more dragon I'm going to shoot myself. Stop the dragons. (The original alien is) the definitive dragon and he's a motherf---er.

Ridley Scott Says 'Prometheus 2' Will Introduce a New Alien

19 November 2014 9:55 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

In an interview with MTV UK back in October, Noomi Rapace was asked about Prometheus 2, a film she clearly has no idea what the plot will be, but she answered from the perspective of her character and what Elizabeth Shaw might be looking for after she and David (Michael Fassbender) left the planet at the end of the first film: I know that Elizabeth Shaw wants to go to paradise. I say that in the first one. I don't wanna go back. She can't go to Earth. There's nothing left for her there really. She wants to go where they come from, those giants, those creatures. In her head that's the dark paradise. What's therec She wants answers. She wants to know. I feel like I'm sharing her curiosity but also her anger. As far as what is in store for Elizabeth and David once they get to the next stop on their journey, »

Prometheus 2 Will Have A New Alien

19 November 2014 9:51 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

  In Prometheus, Dr. Elizabeth Shaw (Noomi Rapace) became "pregnant" with an alien creature. She had it removed with the do-it-yourself surgery pod. That's when we see it's a slimy creature with tentacles. Later on when the Engineer attacks Shaw, her alien infant leaps upon the Engineer, rescuing her. During the alien-on-alien battle Shaw's alien smothers the Engineer's face. When the camera pulls back we see Shaw's alien is actually a large Face Hugger. The final shot in the film is of the Engineer's chest bursting open and a Xenomorph-like creature emerging. Director Ridley Scott acknowledged to The Australian that the final creature is “awfully close to the alien” from 1979's Alien. If you're hoping the Prometheus sequel will bring something new to the table, when it comes to aliens, you're in luck. Scott said, "So with Prometheus 2 what I’m trying to do is reintroduce a fresher form of »

Safe House Director Daniel Espinosa May Helm Marathon Bombing Drama Boston Strong for Fox; Casey Affleck Departs

18 November 2014 2:02 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Boston Marathon bombing drama has found a director and a studio, but it’s lost its star.  Variety reports that 20th Century Fox has acquired Boston Strong, which is based on the non-fiction book of the same name by Casey Sherman and Dave Wedge, with Safe House director Daniel Espinosa in talks to take the helm.  Casey Affleck was previously attached to star when it was looking for a studio home, but his deal eventually fell apart.  The Fighter scribes Eric Johnson and Paul Tamasy penned the script, which follows the massive manhunt for the two men responsible for the tragic Boston bombing in 2013.  More after the jump. News of these developments for Boston Strong comes via Variety, which adds that EOne Television was originally developing the project as a miniseries before those plans fell apart.  No reason is given for Affleck’s departure, but he was certainly a draw to the film. »

The Drop review

18 November 2014 6:37 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A crime thriller starring Tom Hardy and a scene-stealing puppy. What more could you want?

It's not without reason that The Drop has so quickly become known as “that movie with Tom Hardy and the puppy.” Based on screenwriter Dennis Lehane's own short story Animal Rescue, the blue collar crime drama aspect of the film is somewhat overshadowed by the metaphors and sweetness of the dog adoption sub-plot.

Overall though, it's still about Hardy as Bob Saginowski, a nice guy in a rough neighbourhood, who tends a friendly local bar owned by his elder cousin Marv (James Gandolfini). But after hours, Cousin Marv's Bar is a drop bar, one of a number of Brooklyn bars that serves as a place of safekeeping for the Chechen mob's ill-gotten funds.

When a pair of young chancers hold up Bob and Marv at closing time one night and only make off with the contents of the till, »
