Harrison Ford NOT Returning for "Blade Runner 2"

Harrison Ford NOT Returning for "Blade Runner 2"Submit Comment
It was just revealed that Ridley Scott signed on to produce and direct a new "Blade Runner" film. LA Times now caught up with producer Andrew Kosove (Insomnia) to find out how he was able to get the director of the original film interested in a second installment.

"We had a few Plan Bs. But we were really focusing on Plan A, which was Ridley," explained Kosove, who simply reached out to Scott's production company to see if the director would sit down with him.

Scott agreed and the two men met. Over the course of one meeting, they hashed out how a new film would look, how it could avoid seeming too similar to the many movies that have since paid homage to the original, and how different the new film should be from the original itself.

"Everything Ridley does as a filmmaker is fresh," Kosove said. "I believe he sees an opportunity to create something that's wholly original from the first 'Blade Runner.'"

The two are now looking for a writer and are hoping to begin shooting in early 2013. And while it's still unknown whether the new film will be a sequel or a prequel, Kosove said that Harrison Ford will not be involved. "Will this movie have anything to do with Harrison Ford? The answer is no," he explained. "This is a total reinvention, and that means doing everything fresh, including casting."

ok, if this is really happening, then ford is too old to be in it, depending on which ending you believe it may not be an option to have an older version of his character still kicking around.

If its soooo "different", "original" and "fresh" then why not call it something else you silly greedy motherf*ckers?

Thansk AYT, will check those out later on.

And if they were to go a head with this Ford on board would be a plus in my book.

What is it with the Scott Brothers, I see Tony wants to have a go at making a new Wild Bunch movie as well now !!

@Rambo

Just like "The Karate Kid" was changed...right?..lol

And yes Rambo I know they changed "Alien" to the name of the ship form "Alien" and I hope they might do something like that here.


If this is done well, then ok. But not really keen on it at all.

Classics like Bladerunner must be left alone. Even though the master is returning to direct I still feel this will not turn out well.

I think Blade Runner 2 should be a sequel/reboot like having the movie be based in the same universe but having a new main lead character in the movie and also maybe a cameo from Harrison Ford, he's old but I think he need some action and maybe pass the touch just like The Rock and Arine in The Rundown.

well that sucks, but i understand he is kinda old. i hope some gay ass actor doesn't star in it

The source material is so short and vague that you could write fifty very different movies based around it. The important thing is that we're getting another Philip K. d*ck film.
The old school one is classic, but they never did a good job reconciling the two versions of the film.

That sounds like a reboot to me.

they've been calling it blade runner 2 and are wondering if it is a sequel or a prequel, so i would not call it a reboot. a film can have sequels that have nothing to do with the original film, but if they release a third film in the same way it is not a trilogy, but another sequel. i've been meaning to watch bladerunner ...

If Blade Runner is getting rebooted then please I hope not Shia LeBeouf or Channing Tatum will be the main lead.

I can't believe that Ridley Scott returning to direct a reboot instead of a seuqel.

Come on, this movie is a classic mastepiece, okay it didn't made lots of money back in the days but this movie is one of the inspring sci-fi movies.

Rebooting it and having a heartrob in the lead would be a insult to the fans.

Hollywood is stupid, why can't the studios make a successful book or a successful video game into a movie instead of remaking 80's classics.

no harrison ford + no Phillip K. d*ck source material + no Syd Mead design = not blade runner. i don't give a f*ck if ridley scott's involved, he has lost it completely. calling this a blade runner sequel is just a misnomer and an insult to the original.

Why would Harrison Ford return anyway? He was a replicant. He would not have aged 30 years.
