Following his work on Prometheus, Ridley Scott is ready to return to the world of "Blade Runner," reports Deadline. The site says that Scott is committing to direct and produce "a film that advances his other seminal and groundbreaking science fiction film."
While the site says it is not sure if the project will be a sequel or prequel to the 1982 film, Warner Bros-based financing and production company Alcon Entertainment announced earlier this year that they had secured film, television and ancillary franchise rights to produce prequels and sequels to the iconic sci-fi original.
Back then, Alcon said that the franchise rights "would be all-inclusive, but exclude rights to remake the original. The Company, however, may produce projects based on situations introduced in the original film."
Hmmmmm... I definitely think that Ridley still has some greatness in him (he hasn't made a bad film since GI Jane in my own humble opinion).
If he pulls a Prometheus and creates a new sci-fi film laced with Blade Runner's DNA, i'd be ecstatic!
