Back in August, we reported that Ridley Scott will direct a follow-up to his 1982 sci-fi classic Blade Runner, although it wasn't known if it will be a prequel or sequel. The filmmaker has now confirmed he will in fact be at the helm of the next Blade Runner, and that it is a sequel.

Ridley Scott revealed he is close to finding a writer to help him with the screenplay. Here's what he had to say below.

"I think I'm close to finding a writer that might be able to help me deliver. We're quite a long way in, actually."

Ridley Scott also said that the sequel will not feature members of the Blade Runner cast, including Harrison Ford as Rick Deckard. Back in March, we reported that Warner Bros. is lining up both prequels and sequels to Blade Runner.
