Ridley Scott’s BLADE RUNNER Sequel Moves Forward In Spite Of Distant Scoffing
Director suddenly can’t keep his mouth shut about new project.
I’m already on record taking a shit on this whole notion of a new Blade Runner film, Ridley Scott or no Ridley Scott. I don’t want a Blade Runner 2 any more than I want a A Clockwork Orange 2 or a Shawshank Redemption 2. I’ve given my reasons, and I’m going to stick to them.
Still, it seems that Mr. Scott is positively hell-bent upon making the picture, so you can bet that your buddies here at the Complex will be blanketing it like a blue tarp on an Indiana rooftop. Why? Because in addition to being the greatest true Science Fiction film ever made, Blade Runner is also the noirest thing this side of Bogart’s stubble.
So, with all the hype for Scott’s upcoming Prometheus showing up everywhere but on the inside of your eyelids, combined with the speculation surrounding Scott’s The Counselor (based on Cormac McCarthy’s first original screenplay), hard data on the Blade Runner project has been coming along in mere drips and drabs.
A little more than a week ago, Scott mentioned that it would be “amusing” if Harrison Ford were to make at least a guest appearance in the new film. I find this overture to be something less than overwhelming in terms of its sincerity, but given their differences in regards to the original film, Ford’s involvement in any larger capacity might be too much to hope for, anyways.
Of late, Scott has taken to tickling our asses with a feather a bit, even going so far as to offer Collider a detailed description of what certainly sounds to me like the potential opening scene of the new film. The vision Scott describes is divergent from the grim and shadowy aesthetic of the original picture, to say the least.
