Patrick Wilson Joins Ridley Scott's 'Prometheus'

12 August 2011 2:45 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Filed under: Movie News

Patrick Wilson, that hunky-boy-next door who steamed up the big screen with Kate Winslet in 'Little Children,' paid his dues with roles in blockbusters (but really 'B'-fare) like 'Watchmen' and 'The A-Team,' and again heated up the screen with his role in 'Insidious,' has been cast in Ridley Scott's ultra-secretive 'Prometheus,' according to The Playlist.

Little is known about the film outside of the fact that it started out as a prequel of sorts to Scott's 'Alien,' then, when scribe Damon Lindelof came on to rewrite the original script, it supposedly changed course and was touted as a stand-alone sci-fier, though there would be more than a passing nod to 'Alien.' Thus, we know nothing about Wilson's role.

What we do know is that Charlize Theron will play the head of The Company, »

Producers Want Christopher Nolan For Blade Runner Prequel/Sequel

5 March 2011 6:25 PM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Well, that was fast! Yesterday we reported that the rights to 1982′s Blade Runner went to Alcon Entertainment, and today, we’re here to share some new details about the whole thing.

So, we know that there will be prequels and sequels to Ridley Scott‘s sci-fi masterpiece, but we also learned that Broderick Johnson and Andrew A. Kosove are overseeing the project, and of course – that it’s too early to talk about the possible director. But, is it?

In an interview with io9, Alcon producer Andrew Kosove was asked who his “pie in the sky” dream director for a prequel would be. Any thoughts? Well, yes, he’s talking about Christopher Nolan, although it looks that Scott’s return is not out of the question. Here’s what Kosove said:

“Our friend Christopher Nolan who we did Insomnia with would be the pie in the sky for us. »

Warner Bros Acquired Blade Runner Prequels and Sequels Rights

3 March 2011 6:42 AM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Ridley Scott‘s Blade Runner? Man, I love that movie! There’s something in all those genetically engineered organic robots that you must like.

Not to mention great Harrison Ford a.k.a police officer Rick Deckard! Back then, in 1982, we all thought that 2019 will bring us robots instead of humans, and, despite the box office failure of the film, it has become a cult classic. So we’re now talking about Blade Runner – one of the best movies ever made.

And here’s the big news! Alcon Entertainment, the production company announced Wednesday that it is closing in on the rights to the 1982 cult sci-fi movie, Blade Runner. So, it’s official.

Alcon’s franchise rights would be all-inclusive, but exclude rights to remake the original. The Company, however, may produce projects based on situations introduced in the original film. The project would be distributed domestically by Warner Bros »

'Blade Runner' Sequels, Prequels & TV Series May be on the Way

3 March 2011 12:15 AM, PST | CinemaSpy | See recent CinemaSpy news »

Some might consider it sacrilegious — though probably not those inside Hollywood — but a sequel, or prequel, to Ridley Scott's classic 1982 sci-fi film Blade Runner could be headed to a multiplex near you. Moreover, a television series could be on the way, too.

Say whaa…?

Yep, you read that right.

Alcon Entertainment (The Book of Eli) has set in motion plans to develop a franchise based on the 1982 film and are in final negotiations to secure the rights for development as sequels, prequels, a television series…or all of the aforementioned. What they cannot do is reboot or remake the original film (we hear the collective sighs of relief even now).

Blade Runner, of course, is based on the 1968 Philip K. Dick novel, "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?", and is considered, along with Ridley Scott's other sci-fi film Alien, one of the seminal science fiction films of all time. »

Could Alcon Make A Sequel To 'Blade Runner'?

2 March 2011 5:51 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

You know what's even weirder-sounding than Channing Tatum developing a Peter Pan origin story? Finding out that Warner Bros is grabbing all the rights to "Blade Runner" in order to make any prequels, sequels or remakes on the property. Ridley Scott's beloved science fiction film is a staple in the genre, well-loved for almost thirty years. There's no word on whether or not Ridley Scott is involved with the production, but Alcon wants to get the ball rolling soon on any possible projects related to the property.Warner Bros-based financing and production company Alcon Entertainment (“The Blind Side,” “The Book of Eli”) co-founders and co-Chief Executive Officers Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove, in the most significant property acquisition negotiations in the Company’s 13-year history, are in final discussions to secure film, television and ancillary franchise rights to produce prequels and sequels to the iconic 1982 science-fiction thriller “Blade Runner. »

Warner Bros. gets the Sequel and Prequel Rights to Blade Runner

2 March 2011 5:03 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

It looks like we can be expecting a new Blade Runner movie to hit theaters in the next few years. Warner Bros-based Alcon Entertainment (the financing and production company behind The Blind Side and The Book of Eli) are currently in final discussions to secure film, television, and ancillary franchise rights to develop prequels and sequels to Ridley Scott‘s classic 1982 sci-fi film. 

I just want to point out that the deal exclude rights to remake the original film, so you will not see a remake of Blade Runner

I've always wanted to see more movies made based on the world of Blade Runner. Hopefully they will end up being worthy of the film that Scott created and live up to the expectations of the fans. That's not going to be an easy thing to do, and I'm sure not everyone will be happy with the outcome. Moon director Duncan Jones »

WB Producing ‘Blade Runner’ Prequels and Sequels

2 March 2011 5:01 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Ugh. Alcon Entertainment, the company behind The Blind Side, The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants films, and Lottery Ticket are securing rights to produce prequels and sequels to Ridley Scott‘s 1982 masterpiece Blade Runner. There is slightly less reason to worry, as the Warner Bros-based company are legally prohibited to actually create a direct reboot of the film. There are only allowed to “produce projects based on situations introduced in the original film.” I’m sure they could find a way around this as that definition seems loose.

This news comes after watching Blade Runner twice on Blu-ray yesterday. The Harrison Ford-starring sci-fi flick still looks gorgeous today and I can’t imagine someone other than Scott continuing the property. The producers, who are also picking up television and ancillary rights, have “long-term goals for the franchise, and are exploring multi-platform concepts, not just limiting ourselves to one medium only. »
