And a planned Prometheus scene that didn't make it...
Ridley Scott gives an update to the status of Blade Runner in the commentary track for Prometheus, which is now available on DVD and Blu-Ray. CS.net reports that Scott dropped a brief comment about it in relation to the process he went through for Prometheus.
"I'm going through Blade Runner now," he said. "You start off with a blank sheet and you start to evolve. Sometimes you walk into this wilderness of mirrors that don't make any sense at all. Then, suddenly, two and two do make four and you think, 'Oh, that's good,' and you put that up there. It's a series of paving stones."
He also mentions that a scene was planned, but not shot, for Prometheus which would have shown Peter Weyland (Guy Pearce) as a younger man, saying, "I had every intention of showing him as a younger man on board the super yacht in the cyber-Mediterranean with a lot of cyber-girls. As if he was going to say, at 96, 'If I'm going to into a cyber-sleep and I can select that sleep, I may as well be in my prime at 42 with some super-girls having a jolly good time and doing it for two and half years.'"
