Is Deckard coming back?In March of 2011 word broke that Alcon Entertainment and Warner Brothers had teamed up to return to the world of Ridley Scott's classic scifi Blade Runner
. In following weeks Scott himself would sign on to direct the project - it is widely expected to be Scott's next project after Prometheus
, though he's got a number in the works so scheduling could always change - but the official line has always been that Scott would be the only returning alumni, that the plan was a completely fresh reboot.
In fact, producer Andrew Kosove made this abundantly clear in an August interview with the LA Times
, saying: In no way do I speak for Ridley Scott but if you're asking me will this movie have anything to do with Harrison Ford, the answer is no. This is a total reinvention and in my mind that means doing everything fresh, including casting.
Well, either Kosove was throwing up a smoke screen or Scott disagrees.
Twitch has learned that Harrison Ford has entered into early talks to join the new Blade Runner
. While this is still very early stages and it is quite possible that things won't work out the obvious implication is that what we are looking at is not
a reboot but a direct sequel to the original.
