Ridley Scott Won't Direct "Blade Runner 2"

8 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

In surprising news, filmmaker Ridley Scott has revealed that he is no longer attached to direct the in development "Blade Runner" follow-up that he's been developing for several years.

Speaking with Variety, Scott confirmed he is still on board to produce the film and confirms that production will take place sometime next year, but wouldn't go into details about why he is no longer taking the helm.

Scott and the original "Blade Runner" writer Hampton Fancher developed the script for the sequel, with "Green Lantern" scribe Michael Green coming onboard last Summer to polish it. Recently Scott reportedly indicated that the script is ready, and here he confirms Harrison Ford's Rick Deckard character is a part of the story:

"We talked at length about what it could be, and came up with a pretty strong three-act storyline, and it all makes sense in terms of how it relates to the first one. »

Blade Runner 2 Set To Shoot In 2015; Ridley Scott Says He’s Not Directing

25 November 2014 1:26 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ridley Scott might be in the autumn of his filmmaking career, but that doesn’t mean he’s not keen to relive his glory days back on the big screen. The seminal auteur, who cut his teeth on sci-fi genre staples such as 1979’s Alien and 1982’s Blade Runner, has already kickstarted the former franchise in last year’s divisive prequel, Prometheus. While lately, most chatter surrounding his upcoming slate has involved that film’s sequel, it’s the long-gestating second part of the 1982 sci-fi noir, Blade Runner 2, that fans are clamouring to know more about.

Doing the rounds to promote his upcoming Biblical epic, Exodus: Gods And Kings, Scott revealed a glut of previously-unknown plans for the android saga. The last time he spoke out about the sequel was in reference to its script, which he said was not only finished, but “damn good.” Excitement around the various tidbits »

Ridley Scott Says He Won’t Direct Blade Runner 2 But It Starts Shooting in 2015; Harrison Ford Appears in the Third Act

25 November 2014 1:03 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

For a filmmaker of 76 years of age, Ridley Scott is showing no signs of slowing down.  He just shot Prometheus, The Counselor, and this December’s Biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings in quick succession, and while he’s prepping the sci-fi thriller The Martian to start production early next year, he’s also still talking about sequels to Prometheus and Blade Runner.  It’s the latter that he addresses today, revealing that while he won’t be directing Blade Runner 2, it is poised to begin production next year.  That’s somewhat surprising news given that we haven’t heard anything about a replacement director being set, but Scott now says he’ll only be involved in the picture as a producer.  However, he also let slip how Harrison Ford fits into the film’s story.  More after the jump. In a lengthy profile in Variety, it’s mentioned that »

What would a director change do to your interest in more Blade Runner? The prospect of Ridley Scott coming back as director for Blade Runner 2 seemed like one of the only points that stood in the film’s favor.

Ridley Scott Says 'Blade Runner 2' Shoots In 2015 But He Won't Direct, Harrison Ford Will Show Up In The Third Act

25 November 2014 12:31 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Once untouchable sci-fi milestones, Ridley Scott has deemed it necessary to keep tinkering with "Alien" and "Blade Runner." We've already seen the result of what happened with "Alien" pre-prequel "Prometheus" (which has a sequel brewing), and for a while now, a follow-up to "Blade Runner" has been in the works. It looks like the pieces are falling into place, and with Scott's "Exodus: Gods And Kings" arriving soon, he's hitting the press circuit and revealing his future plans for the replicant saga. Chatting with Variety, Scott said that he won't direct "Blade Runner 2," but will stay on as a producer, with filming scheduled to get underway next year. There's no word why he opted out of the director's chair, but considering his next project is "The Martian" with Matt Damon, he probably just doesn't have the time anymore. But he's been deeply involved, working on the script with "Blade Runner »

‘Exodus: Gods and Kings’ Director Ridley Scott on Creating His Vision of Moses

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

The ideal place to meet Ridley Scott would be on a raging battlefield, in the furthest reaches of outer space, or in the midst of any of the other vast canvases on which he creates his movies.

Instead, we’re sitting in a basement salon at London’s trendy Ham Yard Hotel, where the 76-year-old director has parked himself, however briefly, to discuss his new biblical epic “Exodus: Gods and Kings,” and to ruminate on his long career.

“You’re probably going to be sitting down, so you’re not going to get a proper sense of him,” actor Christian Bale, who stars in Scott’s new film as Moses, warned this reporter a few days earlier. “You’ve got to see Rid on the move to understand him. He’s totally kinetic. I’m absolutely sure he springs out of bed at 10 times the speed I do.”

Christian Bale Gets Romantic and Joel Edgerton Gets Angry in 2 New Exodus: Gods And Kings Clips; Plus New Featurette

24 November 2014 12:59 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

20th Century Fox just released a brand new Exodus: Gods and Kings featurette in which director Ridley Scott states the obvious, that his latest is epic in scale, but the studio also just unveiled two new clips that offer up a taste of some of the quieter, more intimate moments of the film.  The first gives us our first good look at Maria Valverde’s Zipporah as she runs through what makes Moses (Christian Bale) happy – while her bracelets jingle incessantly – and then the second shows what happens when you lie to Ramses (Joel Edgerton). They’re both quality clips, but I also can’t say there’s anything particularly mind-blowing about them that’ll have you eager to see the film as soon as it comes out.  Hit the jump to check out both Exodus: Gods and Kings clips as well as that aforementioned featurette.  The film hits theaters »

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.

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. »

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.

Filmmaker Ridley Scott has begun doing promotional rounds for the Biblical epic "Exodus: Gods and Kings" and has briefly talked about how the sequels to both "Prometheus" and "Blade Runner" are progressing.

Ridley Scott Says ‘Prometheus 2′ Will Feature a New Form of Alien

The word “alien” is a big deal when talking about Prometheus and its potential sequel. Ridley Scott‘s film was, after all, a return to the universe he helped create in his defining 1979 film Alien. The signature alien — the xenomorph — from that film even made an appearance in altered but recognizable form at […]

Prometheus 2 to have "fresher form of alien"

19 November 2014 10:43 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ridley Scott wants a different kind of alien to be causing havoc in Prometheus 2.

This article contains a potential spoiler for Prometheus 2.

Sir Ridley Scott shows precious little sign of slowing down. His new film, Exodus: Gods And Kings arrives in cinemas this December, and we're hearing rumours of a near three-hour running time for it. Then, he's tackling Andy Weir's excellent book The Martian, and has already cast Matt Damon in the lead role for that one.

Plus, he's juggling Prometheus 2, a film that he's decreasingly likely to direct himself - given his schedule - but is seemingly heavily involved with nonetheless.

Chatting with The Australian, via Bloody Disgusting, Scott confirmed that the script for Prometheus 2 is done and "really good", noting that it's going to be "getting away from gods and dragons and shit. If I see one more dragon I'm going to shoot myself".

Instead, »
