+ - New Blade Runner Film to Be a Sequel or a Prequel?

Submitted by
Hugh Pickens writes
Hugh Pickens writes writes "News that Ridley Scott has agreed to direct a "follow-on" to Blade Runner, the classic film set in 2019 Los Angeles starring Harrison Ford as a police officer hunting genetically engineered robots called replicants, has prompted discussion as to whether the new film is going to be a prequel or a sequel and whether Harrison Ford would have any involvement in the film. "Everything Ridley does as a filmmaker is fresh," says Producer Andrew Kosove. "I believe he sees an opportunity to create something that's wholly original from the first Blade Runner." The original film cost $28 million to make and failed to become a blockbuster, grossing only $32 million but later became a cult classic."
