There is a new Blade Runner film in the works and has been for at least the last few months, but recent news has indicated that Harrison Ford is in talks with the film’s producers, changing the film from a potential crappy reboot of the 1982 hit, to possibly a direct sequel (which would be much more interesting)!
These talks are apparently in very early stages, but according to Twitch film blog producer Andrew Kosove has absolutely no intention on casting Harrison Ford for a sequel, saying ” In no way do I speak for Ridley Scott but if you’re asking me will this movie have anything to do with Harrison Ford, the answer is no”.

I personally am hoping Harrison will be cast in the new film, it would be much more interesting than watching (yet another) Hollywood remake. A sequel this long after the original fuels all sorts of great story ideas for the new movie. Here’s hoping for greater minds to prevail and make something worth watching!
