Ryan Gosling Joins Blade Runner 2

Posted by Ben Huber on Apr 17, 2015 in Cinema


While everyone was busy freaking out over the new Star Wars trailer, Alcon Entertainment decided to put out a press release announcing that Ryan Gosling has signed on to star along side Harrison Ford in Blade Runner 2, which will be directed by Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners, Enemy). The press release doesn’t detail who Gosling will be playing, leaving us wondering what the script currently looks like. This does seem to imply that the movie won’t be entirely shouldered by Ford, who’ll now have some new faces to bolster the film. I’m still curious about what the plot will be, but will Villeneuve behind the wheel and Gosling stepping up, I’m way more interested than before. Read more…

Denis Villeneuve In Talks To Direct Blade Runner Sequel

Posted by Ben Huber on Feb 28, 2015 in Cinema


If you were wondering the most likely candidate would be to direct the Blade Runner sequel now that Ridley Scott had offered it up, wonder no longer! Denis Villeneuve, the director behind such films as Prisoners, Enemy, and Incendies, is in negotiations to direct the cyberpunk movie. The production company sent out a press release about it, which basically means it’s already official. Harrison Ford is also confirmed to return to his role as Rick Deckard, which I’m not entirely sold on yet. Still, one of the original co-writers of Blade Runner, Hampton Fancher, has written the script with Michael Green (Green Lantern, The River). The film will begin filming in summer of next year. Villeneuve is one of the best directors out there right now, so this suddenly set my hopes a tad bit higher. Read more…

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? Read more…

Rumors Point To Harrison Ford’s Injury Delaying Star Wars Episode VII

Posted by Bob Muir on Jun 24, 2014 in Cinema, Star Wars

Han Solo and Luke Skywalker

It sounds like Harrison Ford’s recent injury may be worse than initially reported. The man who plays Han Solo was injured by a hydraulic door over a week ago while shooting Star Wars Episode VII. While initial reports stated it was a sprained ankle, it turns out that his leg was broken. That’s bad news, considering the actor is rumored to be the main lead in Episode VII, or at least to play a major part. Now rumors are swirling at Pinewood Studios of an emergency meeting to discuss what to do with a film that is due for release on December 18, 2015. Reportedly, the options being considered are rewriting Ford’s scenes, rewriting the whole script to reduce his role, or delaying the film. Read more…

Harrison Ford May Be Down For Blade Runner 2

Posted by Bob Muir on Oct 10, 2013 in Cinema

Blade Runner

Against better judgment, Ridley Scott wants to make a sequel to Blade Runner. The man has made some fantastic films, but his work of late hasn’t been quite as good (see: Prometheus). What’s even worse? Harrison Ford has considered returning to the role of Rick Deckard. During promotion for Ender’s Game, IGN asked Harrison Ford about the potential sequel. Ford revealed that not only was he interested in playing the human/replicant/whatever-you-think, but he has talked with Ridley Scott about it. Read more…

Don’t Ask Harrison Ford About Star Wars, But Anthony Daniels Will Talk

Posted by Ben Huber on Apr 13, 2013 in Star Wars


Trust me guys, just don’t.

Harrison Ford went on David Letterman a few days ago and quite frankly brushed off every question about Star Wars Episode VII that Letterman tossed at him. I think he’s both sick of talking about it, and probably can’t talk about it. However, someone else does want to talk about Episode VII, and Anthony Daniels (C-3PO) dropped a few bits such as “I don’t want to wear anybody out by speculating or letting you waste your energy” and said that he’s “not sitting by the phone, but it’s always nice when it rings.” Sounds like he either hasn’t been asked to come back yet, or can’t say anything due to NDAs as well. So, you hear that internet? Don’t speculate! Daniels says so! Read more…

Rumor Time: Harrison Ford Returning for Star Wars Episode VII

Posted by Ben Huber on Feb 16, 2013 in Star Wars


While I’m labeling this as a rumor, currently, let’s just say that this is the most probably rumor ever. The Latino Review is reporting that according to their sources, Harrison Ford is returning for the Star Wars universe for Episode VII. This is no surprise, as Ford said earlier that’d he love to come back to the series, so in my mind this was an inevitability. Hopefully we’ll get confirmation from Lucasfilm and Disney soon. My opinion has always been that J.J. Abrams will have the returning characters like Han be in more of a “mentor” position, to pass the torch to new, younger characters. Will I be right? Read more…

Why Bother With the Wilhelm When You Have Harrison Ford?

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Nov 4, 2010 in Cinema, Fandom

Harrison Ford has had his fair share of roles over the years –he’s done everything from cracking whips to hunting replicants. It goes without saying that roles like those require quite a bit of stunt work, and while he might not always be the one throwing himself out a window — they have stunt doubles for that — he still has to lend his voice to those scenes. Though many directors would resort to using stock audio, such as the famous Wilhem scream, Ford has proven time and time again that he’s mastered the art of screaming. In doubt? Check out this hilarious video by Jon and Al Kaplan.
