Ridley Scott Claims Harrison Ford Loves Blade Runner 2 Script

Posted by Ben Huber on Dec 14, 2014 in Cinema |


Ridley Scott is making headline a lot these days, eh? With his latest film, Exodus: Gods and Kings, fully whitewashed and ready to release, he’s also been chatting about Blade Runner 2. Scott has leaned away from the idea of directing it in the past month or so, but he apparently heard back from Harrison Ford on his impressions of the script: “I sent him [the script] and he said ‘wow, this is the best thing I’ve ever read.’ It’s very relevant to what happened [in] the first one.” High praise, it seems. I hope it actually is as good as Scott portrays it to be. In lieu of him, who do you think should direct the film? I’m not 100% sure, but I think a good name to suggest would be Nicolas Winding Refn. Since we can’t replicate the success of the original, why not try something totally unique and different?

Scott also briefly touched upon Prometheus 2, speaking about David and Shaw: “You can’t have a person go off into the galaxy and have a person who’s still got his head off. Once that head goes back on he’s really dangerous, but he’s also very seductive. So maybe he’ll persuade her to put the head back [on].” Hmm, a tense relationship between two buddies in space exploring new worlds!
