Harrison Ford Offered A Role In Blade Runner Sequel
Posted by Joseph Lee on 05.15.2014

Superhero Hype reports that Warner Bros-based Alcon Entertainment (Prisoners, The Blind Side, The Book of Eli) has made an offer to Harrison Ford to return to play Rick Deckard in a sequel to Blade Runner, directed by Ridley Scott. The film was written by Hampton Fancher (co-writer of the 1982 original) and Michael Green. The story is a secret, but it will take place decades after the end of the first film.

Alcon co-founders and co-CEOs Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson said: "We believe that Hampton Fancher and Michael Green have crafted with Ridley Scott an extraordinary sequel to one of the greatest films of all time. We would be honored, and we are hopeful, that Harrison will be part of our project."

Alcon Entertainment acquired the film, television and franchise rights in 2011 from producer Bud Yorkin to make prequels and sequels to the original. Yorkin will produce with Kosove and Johnson. Cynthia Sikes Yorkin will co-produce. Frank Giustra and Tim Gamble, CEOs of Thunderbird Films, will executive produce.

The original film was released by Warner Bros, adapted by Fancher and David Peoples from Philip K. Dick's novel Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?. It was directed by Ridley Scott after Alien and was nominated for two Academy Awards (Best Visual Effects, Best Art Direction).

It was selected for preservation in 1993 by the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress for being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant." It is used as part of university courses and was named the second-most visually influential film of all time by the Visual Effects Society.
