:o Dicing with danger trying to bring this revered classic back.

Latest news http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/2012/feb ... NETTXT3487
Ridley Scott is behind it, will likely be a sequel, not a prequel or reboot and writer(s) are being sought.

Danger indeed! I'm all for the prequel to Alien but this I'm not so sure I think a sequel just seems wrong somehow

Blade Runner is a real classic, but I'm not sure this is a good idea either. These rumours have been circulating for ages now. If it's indeed going to happen though, better to do a sequel than a remake/reboot (complete unnecessary when the original is still so brilliant).

Blade Runner worked because it was a standalone. Plus Harrison Ford is turning 70 this year. Granted he wasn't bad when he returned to Indiana Jones, but a 70 year old Deckard, especially with all of the fan debating that's gone on since 1982 whether he in fact was a replicant or not.

^Ford probably won't be in it or may be a supporting role. We don't know yet but they won't say that he is so he can't be a priority.

This seems wrong HOWEVER the special effects that can be used on sequel now would be amazing. Though the original still looks fantastic now.

While Ridley Scott is currently doing press for Prometheus, rumours have erupted about his other return to Sci–Fi, a Blade Runner remake. But, Ridley has quelled those rumours, telling his fans it‘s not so much a remake as it is a sequel.

The involvement of original Blade Runner writer Hampton Fancher is also excitingly confirmed, but don‘t think that means he‘s writing the sequel. The press release states tentatively that he‘s on board to ‘develop the idea of the original screenplay‘ for the new film.

What‘s the new movie going to be about? Well, no one actually knows yet, but in an interview with The Daily Beast Scott bounced the idea of a central female character around.

"I started my first meetings on the Blade Runner sequel last week. We have a very good take on it. And we‘ll definitely be featuring a female protagonist."

We also know that the new movie will be set some years after the first film, but whether or not Harrison Ford will return is yet to be seen.

I love how stylish the original is, I'm surprised they're really doing a sequel after all these years

they have a big shoe to fill to be honest

So this is really happening? And a female lead? I pray this all works out otherwise it could be a disaster.

Harrison Ford wrote:I'm quite curious and excited about seeing a new script for Blade Runner if in fact the opportunity would exist to do another, if it's a good script I would be anxious to work with Ridley Scott again, he's a very talented and passionate filmmaker. And I think it would be very interesting to revisit the character."

High hopes for this after the fantastic Arrival (same director, same score composer).

Just saw it. Long as hell but a visual fest! Incredible and with many subliminal content.

Agreed.

Beautifully shot, perfectly performed, brilliantly scored but sooo damn long.

Somehow I expected this cause it was the same with the first movie

In the UK it has done very well. Much better than the US box office suggested - UK gross twice as high in equivalency.
The US has very different marketing and any number of things could have scuppered it. The home video release will have no such problems.

It's v good - not quite the masterpiece critics say but it's 4/5 for me. Getting rid of Johannson for the score was a mistake, it can't live up to Vangelis and shouldn't be trying to.
