Should a sequel or prequel to Blade Runner really be made?

As news of a new Blade Runner movie arrives, Ryan wonders whether a worthy sequel or prequel could ever be made…

Pruner to head ACTRA branch

TORONTO -- Canada's largest performers union, the Alliance of Canadian Cinema, Television and Radio Artists, said Wednesday that veteran actor Karl Pruner has been voted in as president of its Toronto branch for a two-year term, replacing fellow actor Richard Hardacre. Pruner, an ACTRA member for 25 years, most recently took part in negotiations with independent producers on workplace rates and conditions. His film and TV credits include Total Recall 2070, The Elizabeth Smart Story and Dick. ACTRA, representing around 13,000 domestic actors, maintains reciprocal relationships with the Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, and members of both Hollywood unions can qualify for ACTRA membership when working in Canada.
