Great news, die-hard fans! Ridley Scott has finally signed on to direct and produce a new installment of his 1982's seminal sci-fi classic BLADE RUNNER for Warner Bros. and Alcon Productions.
Scott will only begin on his new BLADE RUNNER after he completes his work on his ALIEN prequel, PROMETHEUS, which is slated for release on June 8, 2012. At this point, it remains unknown whether Scott will tackle either prequels or sequels to the original version. Apart from that, there is no writer attached for the new BLADE RUNNER and whether Harrison Ford will return as Richard Deckard or not.
