- BLADE RUNNER
Earlier this week it was announced that original Blade Runner co-writer Hampton Fancher is on board for the sequel. Director Ridley Scott then also revealed a bit more to The Daily Beast.
The filmmaker said that "the much-anticipated project is intended to be a sequel to the renowned original.” He then went to reveal only that the new story will take place some years after the first film concluded.
Scott said, "I started my first meetings on the Blade Runner sequel last week. We have a very good take on it. And we'll definitely be featuring a female protagonist."
Much like Sigourney Weaver in Alien, Noomi Rapace also leads Scott's Prometheus, which opens in theaters on June 8.
Ridley Scott is next doing The Counselor, but he's also got the Getrude Bell film in the works with Angelina Jolie attached to star.
