Ridley Scott Says BLADE RUNNER 2 Script Is "Damn Good"
Ridley Scott continues to kick ass as a director and is prepping for the release of his next film project Exodus: Gods and Kings, which comes out in December. He's also started developing his next movie, The Martian, which stars Matt Damon. After that, Scott has two sequels in the pipeline — Blade Runner 2 and Prometheus 2.
During a recent interview with EW, the director opened up about both of those sequels, revealing that the script for the Blade Runner 2 has been completed and seeming convinced that Harrison Ford will be back and that the sequel will happen.
"It's written and it's damn good. Of course it involves Harrison, who is a survivor after all these years - despite the accident (referring to Ford's Star Wars injury). So yes, that will happen."
Scott also revealed that he will probably start working on the film after The Martian. That really doesn't leave a lot of time to make Prometheus 2, as it's currently set to be released on March 4th, 2016. The director said,
"That’s the problem. I’ve got a lot of ducks in a row. But they’re all written."
I hope that Scott does take on Blade Runner 2 next. I'm much more excited about that than I am for a Prometheus sequel.
Blade Runner 2 was written by the writer of the original, Hampton Fancher, as well as Michael Green. Prometheus 2 was written by Green and Jack Paglen. Which sequel are you most excited about?
