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.

What are your thoughts on the next Blade Runner movie ?
Have your say in the comment section
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

‘Blade Runner’ Sequel: Hampton Fancher Will Pen Follow-Up To Ridley Scott’s Classic (Huffington Post, 18′th May 2012)
A report a from a few days ago said he was in talks to be in the possible sequel (that may also be directed by Ridley Scott). From Den of Geek…
The line coming out from the project was originally that Scott would be the only person returning, though, but it seems that might not be the case. In fact, we might just be seeing Deckard again.
For, according to Twitch Film, “Harrison Ford has entered into early talks to join the new Blade Runner”.
Obviously, this hasn’t been confirmed yet, and given Ford’s comments about Blade Runner in the past and his thoughts on it, it’d be something of a surprise anyway. But if true? Well, it’d suggest that the new Blade Runner film might just be next on Ridley Scott’s always-packed schedule, once he’s done and dusted with Prometheus.

But, now it seems the producers, Alcon Entertainment, are denying the rumor. From Deadline…
“It is absolutely patently false that there has been any discussion about Harrison Ford being in Blade Runner,” Kosove told me. “To be clear, what we are trying to do with Ridley now is go through the painstaking process of trying to break the back of the story, figure out the direction we’re going to take the movie and find a writer to work on it. The casting of the movie could not be further from our minds at this moment.”
I am sure a lot of things will change before this gets off the ground, so this is really just an excuse for us to see our favorite film in the news again. So please don’e let this news ruin, or make your day…unless it was made because you got to think about your favorite movie too.
