From Latino Review:

http://www.latinoreview.com/news/blade-runner-sequel-news-5458

It’s true, folks! Hot source on the project states that Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner sequel is in the works under the command of veteran producer Bud Yorkin. Top screenwriters John Glenn and Travis Wright (Eagle Eye)

Yorkin already mentioned that if the green light is given, he’ll bring back stars Harrison Ford, Hutger Hauer and Daryl Hannah.


Seriously...there's movies that don't need sequels/prequels and this is one of them...I hope Harrison Ford doesn't accept...

A Blade Runner sequel is a monumentally stupid idea right off the bat, but bringing back Rutger Hauer and Daryl Hannah?

Whaaaaaaa?

I can't see it, no matter HOW much $$ they throw at everybody concerned.

Ridley: OK Harrison, you're an android
Harrison: f-that!

No mention of Sean Young, shame, she was ravashingly beautiful, but unfortunately a little bit 'nuts', by all accounts, and extremely hard to work with. I dont think Ford would do it he's probrably feeling a little bit burned by sequels to classics after I.J & KOTCS (which I liked). Hauer, bless him, is just far too old now. Darryl still looks incredible.
It'd be better to do a new story set in the 'same world' with a new cast.

Whaaaaaaa?

They're replicants, so bringing back Hauer and Hannah, add some CGI to make them appear as they did back in '82, and there you go. Whether or not it should happen, that's something else entirely.

I remember watching an interview/making-of doc in which Ridley Scott expressed some interest in doing a BR sequel. If this project does happen I truly hope he directs.

Harrison Ford...He's so old now...

I would like a sequel in the same universe better then bringing back the original cast for some halfassed sequel which will never live up to the original.

Okay, forgive me if I'm missing something - but didn't Hannah and Rutger die in the first one. Why would they need to bring them back? I agree it's a dumb idea - unless MAYBE if they went with an all new cast and just had a similar story - 25 years further into the future and there are still replicants roaming the earth causing mayhem.....sounds like the movie industry is running out of fresh ideas - they could bring a new sci-fi flick to the table with a similar story (look at Battlestar Gallactica) and not have it tied in as a Blade Runner sequel. As a sequel it is doomed because so many people loved the original and that's a tall order to live up to.

Hannah and Hauer's characters were replicants, they could be replicated through some plot device contrived by Hollywood's most average script and screenwriters.

A BR sequel would be a way to capitalize on the growing success and fondness for the original, which never saw success at the box office. At least, that's what I'm thinking when I imagine a Hollywood exec meeting.

I'm waiting for Titanic 2. Or The Passion of the Christ 2. Or Indiana Jones 6.

Hmmm...don't know if I'd appreciate a movie in which the storylines and characters resume without addressing the visually obvious passage of time, like what was done with Terminator III. However, a book series was released in the 90's that was supposedly a hybrid between Philip K. ^^^^'s and Ridley Scott's renditions of the story, and a strange one at that. The storyline from the movie resumes after some years had passed, and there are older versions of a human Roy Batty, a salvaged Pris, and of course a Deckard who too had aged a bit. Tyrell's real niece features in the story too. Frankly, that was consumption at the level of the geek-BR-fan (such as myself), which is why I would have mixed feelings about a movie sequel; to satisfy my curiousity regarding the BR story's continuity, yet trying to reconcile this with an appreciation for tastefully made movies of iconic subjects.

maybe if they based it off of the game that was out. have it during the same timeframe just some other replicants running amuck.

I would say a hit is a movie that made a lot of money but was also a great movie, Indiana Jones 4 was average at best compared to it's predecessors & if it was a stand alone movie without three successful prequels it would have flopped for sure. Money doesn't mean hit, it was only because of curious fans that the 4th installment made those numbers & I'm sure if they're as big a fan as me then they'd be disappointed with it to say the least, it failed big time in comparison.

Yeah if you look at it from the point of view of the guys that don't care about the movie just how much money it makes well it is a hit to them, but as a movie from the fans point of view it ain't even near a hit.

Maybe to diehards, but to the average movie goer Crystal Skull was a hit.

This is an idea that has been discussed many times on the BR sites. It could be a great film. It won't be though. The elements for a great trilogy are there, but no one will be able to do it. The awful book sequels prove that.

H'W'D has a way of fumbling even the simplest stories. It couldn't even get a comic book right if it meant life or death.

I could make it work if I had a free hand in it. So could many BR fans. That won't happen either.

:lol ...that was my first thought too...c'mon HT, do the figures!
But...isn't BR still wrapped up in legal hell with rights-owners and the like?

And even if that stuff was all solved and this could be a "go", haven't most (if not all) of the major story elements, concepts and designs been riffed on in movies and TV shows already over the last 30 years, rendering this to "has-been" status before it even starts? It'd have to be a helluva script and some great designs to rattle our jaded senses after all these years....

Even if all of the relevant parties were interested...I'd say the ship has sailed on this one.

It's like the news of Ridley wanting to re-visit "Alien" again, only from the "space jockey's" view and with all-new alien designs (courtesy of Giger, of course). Now, on the surface, it sounds intriguing, but...I just don't want to get my hopes up over something that may just be a strained effort of attempting to catch lightning in the ole bottle again...

I think a "Blade Runner" sequel is an even bigger stretch...

Trustey

I am totally open to another movie in that setting... but there was nothing about the original characters that I felt I needed closure or more details on. I could care less if Deckard and his fancy sex doll live out their happy lives and grow old on a porch swing or hit their expiration date the very next day.

In fact the only character I could see having a place ini a sequel would be Olmos'.
