Ridley Scott will Direct a New Blade Runner Film and making Prometheus an Alien Prequel

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”).

Alcon has not revealed whether the new Blade Runner will be a sequel or prequel to the original, and all options would appear to be open.

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.

Prometheus is set for a 2012 release.

It has Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce, Patrick Wilson and others.
