Hi, Bryan Here….
Hampton Fancher is in final talks to join Ridley Scott in developing the new version of ‘Blade Runner’. This project is being sold as a sequel and will take place some years after the first film. Fancher co-wrote the original screenplay which of course is based of the Philip K. Dick novel, ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?’
I imagine this project is a few years off since Ridley is still working on the finishing touches of ‘Prometheus’, but hopefully shortly after the press tour is over, everyone will come back to work and get another ‘Blade Runner’ film in the bag. I’m curious to see who will return from the original film, or if it will be a completely new cast. This is good news either way, and I’ve already popped in my ‘Blade Runner’ bluray again.
