"No" is the answer as to whether Harrison Ford will hunt replicants once more

Blade Runner Deckard in black and whiteJust yesterday we shared with you the news that Harrison Ford was in very early talks to join Ridley Scott's new BLADE RUNNER, a thought which elicited a fair number of passionate reponse.  The thing was though, all of the information was particularly vague as to just what he would even be doing there (if you've seen the original film you'll understand why). Well, turns out the information was particularly vague due to the fact that nothing's actually happening, as I'm sure you feared and/or expected from the very start.

“It is absolutely patently false that there has been any discussion about Harrison Ford being in BLADE RUNNER,” said producer Alcon Entertainment producer Andrew Kosove. “To be clear, what we are trying to do with Ridley now is go through the painstaking process of trying to break the back of the story, figure out the direction we’re going to take the movie and find a writer to work on it. The casting of the movie could not be further from our minds at this moment.  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.”

Then again, Kosove had to of course elect to end his comments with this piece of vagueness:  “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.”

Ridley Scott and company may be secretive about their films, but I strongly doubt that they'd outright lie.  Oh rumor mill... why must you churn out such fascinating stuff sometimes?
