Denis Villeneuve, director of “Enemy” and “Prisoners” is according to IMDB set as director of the still untitled next Blade Runner movie (Blade Runner 2) and it is also now sure that Harrison Ford will be in the movie (which some sources report will “come out” in 2017).
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,” producers Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson said in a statement. (source)
Andrew Kosove & Broderick Johnson are producing the movie (for Alcon Enterntainment) along with Bud Yorkin, Cynthia Sikes Yorkin and Ridley Scott (source) and original screenplay writer Hampton Fincher collaborating on the script together with Michael Green (and according to IMDB also Ridley Scott).
Now, with Harrison Ford (being said) to reprise his role, does that mean that Deckard is human ?. Could Harrison Ford perhaps play the character that they cast Rick Deckard from ?

Amazon.com are now streaming their own TV-Series and has the pilot of “The Man In The High Castle” available for you to watch (for free, as all of their pilot episodes) at their website. “The Man In The High Castle” is an alternate history novel written by Philip K. Dick and takes place in the U.S.A. which after World War 2 (which in PKD’s story did not end as it did in reality) is under German and Japanese control.
The series has been adapted by Frank Spotnitz and is produced for Amazon by Ridley Scott, David Zucker and Jordan Sheehan for Scott Free, Stewart Mackinnon and Christian Baute for Headline Pictures, and Isa Hackett and Kalen Egan for Electric Shepherd.
You can watch the first episode, for free here.
Sir Ridley Scott says that he “might” direct “Blade Runner 2″ In an interview with Yahoo Movies. He says that it’s his most personal film and might still direct it. The script is according to Sir Scott very good.

What are your thoughts on the next Blade Runner movie ?

In an article in Varitey we get some more news on “Blade Runner 2″. First of all, it seems like Ridley will be producing Blade Runner movie (but not directing it) and that Harrison Ford will be returning as Rick Deckard (Good luck making him a replicant with a four year lifespan) and will come in “the third act” and the story which is written by Hampton Fancher is “a three style story act and it all makes sense in terms of how it relates to the first one,” says Scott”
First of all, the site is not dead. Real Life is keeping me busy but I’ll try to add more news a bit faster.
Now, there are much of gossip and rumors on what “Blade Runner 2″ (?) will be, whom is doing the writing and if Harrison Ford will be in it. I think we should consider all of this as fun ingredients in the boiling pot that might end up as a new Blade Runner movie.
Personally I hope that Ridley Scott will be involve, otherwise they can scrap the whole thing. As of now it seems like Hampton Fancher might do some of the writing for the story.
As of now, all I do know is that Alcon Entertainment is the company behind this new production
I’ll hand you a bunch of links to website where you can find more informtion, as you can see by the date they where posted Im way behind on the updates of this site and for that I am sorry
