Sean Young says "everybody should boycott" the Blade Runner sequel if she's not in it

08.07.2013

While promoting her new film, JUG FACE, actress Sean Young was asked what involvement she has in the developing BLADE RUNNER sequel with director Ridley Scott, to which the actress gave a rather scathing response, saying that "everybody should boycott it" if she's not cast back in the role as Rachel.

"Alcon –  they’re the ones that own it and apparently they have Ridley to direct it — and when I met with them they didn’t make any offer-plans to include me. And when I called Ridley Scott’s office, he doesn’t call me back. So I guess they’re going to go, like, prequel or…I don’t know what they’re going to do. But my official opinion is that, if they don’t include me in it, everybody should boycott it. Because it’s stupid not to have me in it. It’s really stupid. That’s my opinion! I mean, you try to tell people something sensible in Hollywood and sometimes they just don’t listen, you know. And they usually pay the price too, because everybody’s an expert."

Young starred in the role for the original film in 1982, but Scott has said that it will be a sequel and not a prequel that will feature a female protagonist. How far into the future the sequel will take place is unknown and it's also unclear whether any returning characters will be featured. Recently, screenwriter Michael Green (GREEN LANTERN) was hired to rewrite the script and singer Katy Perry has expressed interest in playing the lead role, but no news on production dates, casting, or proposed release have been put out. As for Young, she's no stranger to controversy over roles, as many may remember her exploits in trying to secure the role of Catwoman by dressing up as the character and storming the Warner Bros. lot to convince Tim Burton to hire her. The role went to Michelle Pfeiffer instead.

These comments keep reminding me of a scene from That 70s Show, when the group talks about Fez's girlfriend. They just keep saying 'Psycho' over and over again.

Sorry Sean. You were good in the original movie, but you didn't make the movie. Also she pretty much has been going through a downward spiral since the early 90's and had no place demanding to be in a movie. I honestly still don't want a Blade Runner sequel seeing as Ridley Scott hasn't been good for over a decade now.

Really? I mean I am not going to interpret your last sentence 100% literally and list his movies over the last decade; but even Scott's duds were more entertaining than most of the films out there.

What happened to her, she looks nothing, not even remotely, like the Sean Young from Blade Runner. Also, she was a replicant, too old....moving on. No to her and no to Katy Perry.

Bad enough the script is being written by the Green Lantern scribe.

seems to me she's just upset because she hasn't been included. It's like a child throwing a tantrum because they didn't get invited to the party. I can understand her being upset, but I don't think anyone is gonna be heart broken if she's not in it. I guess it would be kinda cool to see her and Harrison in it together. Really she isn't integral to the story though. I don't really think too many people are gonna boycott the film because she's not in it. If Harrison wasn't in it then that would

If Harrison wasn't in it then that would be a TOTALLY different story, and people would be boycotting left and right.

Yeah... I've always got a bitch vibe from her...

Everytime I read something she's been attached to or involved with, she's always bitching about something. I remember reading awhile ago about her getting canned from Dick Tracy. They said she was difficult on set, but she maintains she was fired for rejecting Beatty's sexual advances... But considering her career, I find it more believable that no one will hire her because she's a pain in the ass to work with... Then again, it could be true. On more recent viewings, I remember thinking "who

This one is easy

formula for inclusion:
-lose 100 pounds
-fix your face
-de-age 30 years
-smell better
piece of cake (no put it down don't eat it!)

Too much Charlie.

I thought that was Sean Young in 'Two and a Half Men' shouting 'Never, Never, Never!'
Then I realised she looked like Sean Young in 1989.

Sean Young was really goo din Blade Runner. She did a good job. But all these years later this poor pathetic woman is starved for work. Just because she isn't in a Blade Runner sequel means very little to fans of Ridley Scott or Philip K Dick or Harrison Ford or whatever. Bitter is unbecoming. I kinda do hope Sean Young gets more work. But she is kinda crazy.

leaving the whole crazy b*tch aside, wasn´t her character a replicant in the first one? If so.. how could she have aged and get all bloated and such? Do they have like botox for robots or something?

She used to be really pretty and now she's gone and messed up her face with a bunch of freakin' surgery! Now she looks as crazy as she's always been! When have her aggressive tactics actually worked for out and WHY IS SHE STILL USING THEM?! No wonder Scott's office isn't calling her back!!!

Im going to assume this comment was a joke. She is likely aware shes a terrible, wooden actress who had a face that directors loved (see Bladerunner and Dune). Rachel isnt an important character really. Hell, in the book Deckert was married and Rachel was 17 or 18. Outside of being a great tranny in Ace Ventura, she's pretty forgettable. But this Letterman clip was some really sad begging.

Explain this to me like I'm five. I own Bladerunnner- I recognize it's importance in cinema, but I've never been able to completely watch it. Which is a shame because I love the genre. Is Rachael as important- as say, Princess Leia?

So they either had her on Letterman to make her look like a maniac/reinforce peoples' opinions of her, or they were trying to be funny as a way of showing she has a sense of humour and it backfired horribly. Either way if she has an agent they need firing.

She is a psycho alcoholic ass-bag. Always has been, always will be. And I'm sure we all remember the time she went on RuPaul's talk show dressed as Catwoman, begging Tim Burton in a terrible attempt at an Eartha Kitt voice to get the role.
