    And it is going to be directed and written by the same gang:- Ridley Scott and Hampton Fancher.

    I keep getting sucking back to that movie. Damn those 80's Sci-Noir film. :mrgreen:

    From Prometheus to this?

    Without Harrison Ford it'll be like Mad Max without Mel Gibson.

    Fuck this. It doesn't need a sequel.

    I wonder if he will use 100 takes for minor scenes that don't fucking matter? After watching the making of Blade Runner I seriously dislike Ridley Scott, but he comes up with great stuff. I guess we will see.

    Damn. I was soooo hoping Michael Bay would get this gig.

    I wonder whether David Peoples will be in on the deal (if he's still alive...I don't even know). Peoples's name is on the screenwriting credits of the original, and he also wrote the screenplay for Unforgiven, among others.

    Blade Runner is pretty much my favorite movie of all time. I doubt anything good can come out of a sequel.

    I wonder what they've got planned for art direction, because Blade Runner was pretty much the last big budget movie that extensively used a technique to blend real life decors with drawn art.

    ah the great time of matte paintings. Those people knew how to make real art.

    CGI is definitely a problem even before this idea starts to become a reality.

    My sentiments exactly. They always ruin these movies nowadays with a bunch of lame ass CGI garbage. There are exceptions of course.

    I will wait until I know more about the story - the setting is already established, so I hope they don't screw it. I have no problem with a completely new cast, as long as they don't fill it with acting "superstars" - Tom Cruise, etc.

    So much negativity... I'd understand if it was a different writer and director, but... seriously. U GUISE.

    One the one hand I'm glad it's the same team, on the other...yeah.

    I'll wait to see Prometheus first before assuming anything - hopefully, Ridley's still got knack for sci-fi.

    I don't think that will be the case. Ridley's films usually have great cast, sometimes with less-known actors at the time. In the case there are more famous ones, those are actually quality actors, not some overpriced Hollywood playboys or whatever...

    It's already a miracle that the original came into being, even with the original team.
    You had the original funding falling through. You had the actor's strikes putting Hollywood on its ass. You had huge hostility in the film crew (to the extent of them wearing hateful T-shirts, calling it Blood Runner and often refusing to keep working). You had Rutger basically inventing awesome lines that weren't in the script. You had an iconic weapon that only came into being due to trash seen on the armorer's bench. You had a high amount of hate and disregard irl between the lead character and his supposed love interest. You had a weirdo sidecharacter that basically got carte blanche to invent his own language that wasn't in the script. You had the studio intervening because the ending was "too dark", so they forced the US release with a ridiculous happy ending.

    My god, it was glorious! :clap:

    Assuming that this can be replicated is mind bloggling. :crazy:
    Quite frankly, it would be a huge challenge to make a good movie out of all this, let alone making a sequel that lives up to the original.
    Experience tells us that it's quite unlikely to see the very late sequel replicate the feeling and awesomeness of the original. But I can't fault him for trying, of course.

    I always heard that PKD was originally skeptical but saw a pre-release version of Blade Runner and liked it. Then he died.

    I'm definitely giving Scott the benefit of the doubt, especially since the movie was so different from PKD's story and he did a bang-up job with it.
