Friday was a big news day for Blade Runner fans: not only was it confirmed that Harrison Ford would return as Rick Deckard – the antihero at the centre of Ridley Scott’s 1982 sci-fi masterpiece – for a Blade Runner sequel, but it was revealed that Denis Villeneuve, director of Prisoners and Enemy, was coming on board to helm the new film.
With this came the announcement that the screenplay – by original Blade Runner co-writer Hampton Fancher, along with Green Lantern screenwriter Michael Green – was ready to go, and that the film would begin shooting some time next year.
Now is going to be a time rife with speculation. After fans have first got past the fury they might feel over Blade Runner getting a sequel at all (the questions of “was there any need?” and “why does Ridley Scott keep doing this to his own films?” need to be out of »

Wake up! Time for a sequel!
We knew Ridley Scott was working on a sequel to Blade Runner. Since the first rumors, few details emerged, but it seemed to have been worth the wait. Variety confirmed that a sequel is indeed in the works, with actor Harrison Ford back as replicant hunter Deckard. Phew! The sequel is meant to take place several decades after the events of the first one, which was set in the very near future 2019 Los Angeles.
However, Ridley Scott will not be back in the director's chair. Considering his latest efforts, it may not be such a bad thing for him to take a break, especially as his heir apparent is Quebec director Denis Villeneuve! Ridley will produce the film along with Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson, who noted Villeneuve's "singular talent".

Movie News - 72-year old actor Harrison Ford is back for the 'Blade Runner' sequel. Ford, who played the character of Rick Deckard in the 1982 original, will return to the role in the screenplay written by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green and directed by 'Prisoners' filmmaker Denis Villeneuve. Producers Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson said in a joint statement: ''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'.'' The much-anticipated film will also see the return of Ridley Scott, who will produce the sci-fi sequel alongside Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson. The statement added: ''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, »
Yesterday was a good day for the internet. The headlines were full of loose llama news, debates over the color of a dress and then just when you thought it couldn't get any more interesting, it was announced that a director had been hired for the Blade Runner sequel.
Ridley Scott nostalgia is having an awful good week. Back in November there were talks that a sequel to Blade Runner, Scott’s 1982 sci-fi masterpiece, was in the works, but that Scott would be unable to direct due to schedule conflicts with Prometheus 2.
Now however, a replacement has been found in Denis Villeneuve, Oscar winning director of Incendies, Prisoners and Enemy. Variety reports that the French-Canadian director is currently in talks, but that Harrison Ford, after calling the script, “the best thing he’s ever read“, is officially on board.
Ford of course is returning to the Star Wars franchise while Villeneuve, whose crime drama Sicario is set to arrive later this year, is an unusual choice for such a franchise as he’s never really directed sci-fi, or for that matter action.

It's a good day to be a replicant: "Blade Runner," one of the most beloved and highly influential science fiction films of all time, will finally be getting its long-discussed sequel, set to shoot in the summer of 2016. And what's more - Harrison Ford will be back as futuristic private eye Rick Deckard in a story set "several decades" after the original film.
And, to add icing onto the cake, the producers have picked out probably the best filmmaker for this material not named Ridley Scott (and depending on your thoughts on Scott's return to the "Alien" franchise, "Prometheus," this could be a better choice) - "Prisoners" filmmaker Denis Villeneuve. In short: this movie is going to be awesome.

After directing a new "Alien" film, called "Prometheus," director Ridley Scott signed on to direct a sequel to his "Blade Runner" sci-fi film. But recently came word that he won't be directing, just producing.

The story takes place several decades after the conclusion of the 1982 original. "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,'" said Alcon Entertainment. "Hampton [Fancher, writer of original film] and Michael [Green], 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." »
It has been up in the air for quite sometime, but now it's official: Harrison Ford will be slipping on Rick Deckard's trenchcoat yet again for the long in development Blade Runner 2.

The new movie will take place several decades after the events of the original, and while earlier comments from Scott have suggested Ford will only be playing a small role, it is great to see the actor back in »

Fans of Harrison Ford have been on quite the rollercoaster ride this past year. What seemed inconceivable has now happened – he’s returning as Han Solo in Star Wars Episode VII, and now it’s been confirmed he will reprise Rick Deckard for Blade Runner 2.
Original helmer and visionary Ridley Scott is not directing, but has devised the script concept with Hampton Fancher. It sees the action moved on to incorporate Ford’s age, though whether Deckard is going to be a main character remains to be seen. The new director is likely to be Denis Villeneuve, who scored a hit with Prisoners.
To say Villeneuve has a lot to live up to is an understatement. The franchise’s source material was Philip K Dick’s Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep and the resulting movie became one of the most influential sci-fi films of the twentieth century, despite a troubled production. »

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.

Variety reports that Prisoners and Enemy helmer Denis Villeneuve is in negotiations to direct the second Blade Runner movie. The sequel, written by Hampton Fancher and Michael Green, reportedly takes place several decades after its predecessor. No other plot details have been made available. But for what it's worth, the script is apparently the best thing Harrison Ford has ever read, which in itself might be the best thing ever because he's notoriously said he had no idea what was going on in the first movie. Regardless, Ford will be back as Rick Deckard, whether the whole replicant thing makes sense or not. »
