Harrison Ford reveals he's had conversations with Ridley Scott about a Blade Runner sequel

10.09.2013

Not much is known about Ridley Scott's planned BLADE RUNNER sequel, but we do know the GREEN LANTERN scribe might be writing the script, the protagonist could be a female and Harrison Ford probably won't be back. Or will he? Ford recently talked to IGN and they asked him if he would be interested in playing Deckard again for Ridley Scott. His response?

We've been chatting about it.

So that means Harrison Ford is at least open to the idea, and while Ridley Scott might still be bouncing around ideas for a BLADE RUNNER sequel, Deckard returning does sound like it could be a possibility. Harrison Ford was also asked if he has fond memories from working on the first film.

I remember [the first film] with 'complication. But I'm not there to generate nostalgic moments, I'm there to do a job of work. I quite understand that everyone has an ambition when they come into a film and everyone's ambition may not be so focused on the same thing. I truly admire Ridley as a man, and as a director and I would be very happy to engage again with him in the further telling of this story.

When asked if a voice-over while be featured in the sequel (something that was added to the original by the studio), Harrison Ford said "I'm now capable of losing my voice, cutting out my tonsils and my vocal chord." Seriously though, what about a voice-over?

"No, that was a big part of the issue. I didn't think it was necessary, and Ridley of course didn't think it was necessary. That was something that came up from the studio."

Not necessary is how some might describe a BLADE RUNNER sequel, but with Ridley Scott on board and Harrison Ford sounding like he's game to play Deckard again, I'm down with another film. Any guesses as to what the plot could be for the sequel? Sound off below!

Similar problem to TRON

Blade Runner is much more ingrained in pop culture, but a sequel so far removed from original will just confuse the ones not familiar with original and disappoint die hard fans. Do a spiritual universe sequel. Bring the world back, but set it after all the characters are dead. Do background homages only. If you have replicants either more integrated or what in society great. Ridley Scott Sci Fi is enough to pack the seats. Don't make Blade Runner 2: Replicants age really slowly. Or have a

If there is rumor of another cut no one will see theatrical version.

I'm definitely down for this, especially if Harrison was to return. Blade Runner is a film you could do multiple sequels with. There's a lot of different places you could go with it. What did Harrison mean by: "I'm now capable of losing my voice, cutting out my tonsils and my vocal chord." I don't get it? Am I the only one?

Wasnīt he supposed to be also a replicant? With all the different "versions" of the film and the fact that I didnīt revisited it for a couple of years at least leaves me a bit confused. Anyhow... a sequel would ruin the ambiguity of its character.

A sequel... maybe, but totally different characters would be better. Maybe some cameos...

Please dont

Blade Runner is my favorite movie, but if Scott goes back into this world he needs to leave Ford out.

I just rewarched Blade Runner two nights ago. Probably 3rd time I've seen it and I cannot figure out why it's considered a "classic". I've given it three chances and still don't get all the love for it. I'm probably in minority with this, but I'd be all for a complete remake/reimagining of this film. Maybe for its time it was very cool, but I don't think it holds up. Thank you in advance for Thumbs Down. :)

I love Ford, but how can the man who played Indy and Han be so boring when he talks? He even sounds boring when you read his words.

What I do want to see is a film starring Justin Timberlake, Wesley Snipes, Ben Affleck and Kris Kristofferson: Blade Runner Runner.

I'm usually thrilled about any sequel. But with Blade Runner, I think it's best to leave it alone. It's Classic as it is.

Its better not to do any sequels to this.the ambiguity of the climax will be spoiled.but if they do i will look forward to them.a prequel and a sequel would be fine.since Ford became old,i don't see how they can come up with a suitable story.

Not making a sequel will have the advantage that the original film and it's 'world' will remain untouched and unharmed. A sequel for such a great movie is a big risk. Even though I don't hate Prometheus as some other people do, I see what damage it did to the alien franchise (for some people!).

Harrison Fords last performances were tired and slow. I wouldn't want him to return to BR. I'd like Deckard mentioned though.
