Ridley Scott is set to helm a follow up to his own ground-breaking 1982 science fiction classic “Blade Runner” for Warner Bros-based financing and production company Alcon Entertainment (“The Blind Side,” “The Book of Eli”).
Blade Runner had stunning and imaginative visuals and a plausible look to its imagined future (although it was set in 2019 which did not make sense)
Scott’s forthcoming return to the Alien universe, Prometheus, is being touted as a film with “DNA” from the original movie rather than a direct prequel, an intriguing prospect which has created enormous buzz round the project.
It has Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce, Patrick Wilson and others.
