Rumor:
Quote:
Twitch has learned that Harrison Ford has entered into early talks to join the new Blade Runner. While this is still very early stages and it is quite possible that things won't work out the obvious implication is that what we are looking at is not a reboot but a direct sequel to the original.
Denied:
Quote:
"It is absolutely patently false that there has been any discussion about Harrison Ford being in Blade Runner."

"What Ridley does in Prometheus is a good template for what we’re trying to do. He created something that has some association to the original Alien, but lives on its own as a standalone movie." Asked point blank if Ford could resurface, Kosove said: "In advance of knowing what we’re going to do, I supposed you could say yes, he could. But I think it is quite unlikely."

It would be safe to assume, looking at Harrison, that Deckard outlived Rachael no matter what cut this one followed.

I suppose there's no reason why he couldn't appear as a retired version of himself, but it may look like a shoe horn if Ridley's Prometheus-style intentions are true.

Harrison had a hell of a time making Blade Runner anyway (meaning one of the worst acting experiences he ever had.) It was hell on him... it would take a hell of a lot to get him in a movie like this again with Ridley. I don't think Harry would do it.

Those were my first thoughts as well.

Unless, of course, it's a prequel and he's playing the original.

The original '82 Blade Runner is an iconic sci-fi classic, and works perfectly as a stand-alone film. There is no reason why this should have a sequel.

It does stand very well alone, but for those who want more K. W. Jeter wrote three sequels. I don't know if anything from them could feature in Ridley's new vision as I still haven't gotten round to reading them.

Ridley Scott on Ford: "I’m not sure that that’s going to be a story point, so I don’t know. But if it were, nothing would please me more. Honestly."

Ridley Scott: "It’s not a rumour – it’s happening. With Harrison Ford? I don’t know yet. Is he too old? Well, he was a Nexus-6 so we don’t know how long he can live [laughs]. And that’s all I’m going to say at this stage."

Bladerunner2 CONFIRMED!

Harrison Ford is in current discussion with Ridley Scott regarding a sequel to the '82 sci-fi yarn that is considered, by most, as Fords finest hour, and arguably science fiction fandoms all time greatest film. Who can argue that?

The soundbyte was heard less than 20 minutes ago, by myself, on Londons LBC radio, which is celebrating 40 years of air time - and the good news has been validated by Mr. H himself, as he was promoting his latest effort Enders Game.

I am so excited by this I just cancelled Christmas for the next 1000 years, and logged in just to share the news with the Raven community. More excited about this than the Star Wars sequel.

Yes! YES!! and F*ckin' YES!!!

Get this one on. This is the movie I have been waiting for since KOCS - before and beyond!

So I assume you didn't see Prometheus?

I don't really if this is good or bad news, judging on Hollywood's track record with sequels to old franchises, this can go either way. On one hand, it could leave a bad taste in everyone's mouth and bring down the acclaim of Blade Runner, or it could loved by some and hated by others, leaving the internet in ruin. THOSE ARE THE ONLY TWO OPTIONS. There is no scenario in which it is fantastic and everyone loves it, or where everyone accepts it at okay.

That being said, I wish Ford was doing IJ5 instead of Bladerunner 2. But good to see he's still wants to act in roles like this.

Prometheus was good so no worries there.

BR b4 IJ.

The only problem is, if Deckard had a four year lifespan, he didn't age as well as the other Nexus-6.

Unless he was an older model without an expiry date, but with a natural ageing process.

...or of course Deckard isn't a replicant.

Perhaps Rachael is to outlive Deckard? As she is, after all, an advanced Nexus series. Knowing that time is robbing her of him she must crack the code of the key to immortality on the back of Tyrell's findings. Thus learning how futile man's pursuit for permanence truly is.

There is also the possibility that assuming she functions on the same biological level she could procreate. Imagine that replicants replicating?

Ooh the speculation. Well pepper me in glee today.

Harrison Ford officially offered role...

I guess at this point Ford's career has pretty much been reduced to reprising Han Solo/Indiana Jones/Rick Deckard.

And thats a bad thing? They're not bad roles to have on your cv are they and this stage of his life he gets the chance to star in more blockbusters. Let's hope the films aren't a let down.

“It’s written and it’s damn good,” Ridley Scott says of the Blade Runner sequel. “Of course it involves Harrison, who is a survivor after all these years—despite the accident,” he says with a laugh (referring, no doubt, to Ford’s Star Wars injury). “So yes, that will happen.” (Ford’s camp has not yet responded on Ford’s commitment to the project.)

The tricky part will be pairing him with Sigourney Weaver. Promehteus 2 will explain everything.

The Nexus 6 Androids have finally arrived.
I hope Ford never has to use the term "phablet."

Ridley Scott:
Quote:
“We talked at length about what it could be, and came up with a pretty strong three-act storyline, and it all makes sense in terms of how it relates to the first one. Harrison is very much part of this one, but really it’s about finding him; he comes in in the third act.” Per Scott, that Alcon Entertainment production should go before the cameras within the next year, but with someone else directing (he’ll produce).

Harrison Ford absolutely loves the script for the upcoming Blade Runner sequel. So much so that Ford apparently called it the best thing he's ever read.

Wow... It's not like Harry to use big superlatives about scripts like that.

If this is true, it's time to get excited about BR2 !

Even if it is not his habit, it's still a huge error in logic to assume - without better knowledge - that he has the same literary tastes as you. Could be he does, could be he doesn't.

Next in news: Ford states that the back of a cereal box that promises a propeller cap for anyone collecting twenty lids is the second best thing he ever read.

While Ford is probably not as scholarly as Indy, I am inclined to believe his literary tastes may well be broader than the back of a cereal box.
