Harrison Ford Is Interested in Returning For BLADE RUNNER 2

Besides immortalizing the characters of Han Solo and Indiana Jones, Harrison Ford also helped solidify Ridley Scott's "Blade Runner" as one of the most classic sci-fi films in cinema history. Murmurs of a sequel have been dancing around for years and now Ford speaks about the prospect and his interest to return.

Staying within the sci-fi genre, while promoting his newest film "Ender's Game", Ford stated that he has been talking to Ridley about returning to the role of Rick Deckhard.

"Yeah, we've been chatting about it," he said.

The original film was said to be a bit of a production headache as Ford and Scott didn't see eye to eye on the full direction of the film. While the actor never spoke out about the situation before, he has finally admitted rather vaguely to some of the issues that occurred on set. Ford's appreciation for Ridley however surpasses his desire to sit out of the production due to the original obstacles.

"I remember [the first film] with 'complication'. But I'm not there to generate nostalgic moments, I'm there to do a job of work. I quite understand that everyone has an ambition when they come into a film and everyone's ambition may not be so focused on the same thing.

I truly admire Ridley as a man and as a director, and I would be very happy to engage again with him in the further telling of this story."

Original "Blade Runner" writer Hampton Fancher signed on in May of last year to pen the screenplay for the sequel. As of May of this year, Michael Green ("Green Lantern") has been hired to rework the script. According to Scott, the story will feature a female protagonist this round.

    This reply if for CMO175: Wow... I had to comment on your posting. The fact that you believe Batman vs. Superman would beat Captain America 3 strikes me as uninformed. Zack Snyder is a visual master... but his stories and pacing and color palate are truly lacking in the development process. Superman simply had no soul... the man and the movie. And the silly destruction of the city and the landscape IS out of character with what Superman is. How many people died as Superman himself crashed through buildings and caused explosions throughout the movie? Superman would NEVER allow that to happen, but Zack Snyder and his writer would... and did. And it was a boring, stupid mess. And he WILL bring that soulless idiocy to Batman vs. Superman. Captain America, on the other hand? Winter Soldier is the most exciting super hero movie since The Dark Knight. And I, a 55 year old long time comic book universe fan, WILL be in line for Captain America 3! I will have to be convinced -- a LOT -- to turn around and spend my money, and time, in a Zack Snyder Batman vs. Superman. Zack Snyder stole a bit of my soul -- and I hate him for it -- when he introduced zombies that can run down a car. If zombies existed, in a Zack Snyder universe, and they move FASTER than any human... then he has introduced a horror universe in which man has NO hope of survival! Mankind cannot survive in this universe where vicious zombies have the speed to overwhelm any human survival situation... and that vision kills the suspense in a zombie movie. Where is the hope? That does not exist in a Zack Snyder movie. That man is Sucker Punching all of us. I'm not taking it any more. There are too many other fan friendly directors of fantasy movies for me to follow. I only hope that Disney/Marvel will hire the same brother director team to direct Captain America 3. That will be a smart move, indeed. RLJ
