BLADE RUNNER Sequel: Ford Is In. PRISONERS' Denis Villeneuve In Talks To Direct
French Canadian director Denis Villeneuve, director of popular titles Prisoners, Enemy, and Incendies, is in talks to direct. His latest film, Sicario, a crime thriller starring Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin and Benecio Del Toro, is in post production.
The sequel will take place many decades after the first film. The screenplay was written by the original film's scribe Hampton Fancher along with Michael Green. The screenplay is reportedly based on an idea by Fancher and Scott.
There are no details about the plot at this time and I do not imagine we will be getting too much detail when the film goes into production in Summer of 2016. It is sure to be a highly anticipated title.
