Ridley Scott confirmed he’s already started pre-production work on the follow-up movie to the 1982 classic Blade Runner.
Blade Runner was loosely based on the novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? penned by Philip K. Dick. A sequel by a completely different author was published in 1995, Blade Runner 2: The Edge of Human. The book’s story is about Deckard and Rachael after they’ve escaped the city.
Harrison Ford has not yet been reported as tied to the project, but Scott assures us he will not be a prevalent character if he does sign on. “I’ve got to have him in it somewhere,” says Scott. “That’d be amusing.” I, for one, am looking forward to the applause in the theater when Ford shows up for his cameo.
Scott has also confirmed that the protagonist will be a woman. Knowing this and that Harrison Ford will not be the front-man of the movie, we can only assume that it will have its own original plot. No further details about the story have been revealed as of yet.
Blade Runner 2 is set to be released in 2014.
