Blade Runner Sequel in Development?

Source: ComingSoon

March 2, 2011

It appears that a sequel to Ridley Scott's Blade Runner could be on the way.

Alcon Entertainment has set plans to develop a franchise based on the original 1982 film and are in final negotations to secure the rights for development as sequels, prequels, a television series, or all of the above (interestingly, the rights would not allow them to remake or reboot the original). The studio press release explains:

Warner Bros-based financing and production company Alcon Entertainment (“The Blind Side,” “The Book of Eli”) co-founders and co-Chief Executive Officers Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove, in the most significant property acquisition negotiations in the Company’s 13-year history, are in final discussions to secure film, television and ancillary franchise rights to produce prequels and sequels to the iconic 1982 science-fiction thriller “Blade Runner.”

Alcon is negotiating to secure the rights from producer-director Bud Yorkin, who will serve as producer on “Blade Runner” along with Kosove and Johnson. Cynthia Sikes Yorkin will co-produce. Frank Giustra and Tim Gamble, CEO’s of Thunderbird Films, will serve as executive producers.

Alcon’s franchise rights would be all-inclusive, but exclude rights to remake the original. The Company, however, may produce projects based on situations introduced in the original film. The project would be distributed domestically by Warner Bros. International rights are yet to be determined.

Johnson and Kosove stated: “We are honored and excited to be in business with Bud Yorkin. This is a major acquisition for our company, and a personal favorite film for both of us. We recognize the responsibility we have to do justice to the memory of the original with any prequel or sequel we produce. We have long-term goals for the franchise, and are exploring multi-platform concepts, not just limiting ourselves to one medium only.”


Loosely based on the 1968 Philip K. Dick novel, "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?", the original film is heralded as seminal cinematic achievement. The novel actually receieved three "authorized" sequels, written by K.W. Jeter, a friend of Dick's, entitled "The Edge of Human", "Replicant Night" and "Eye and Talon". David Peoples, the co-writer of the 1982 film, also stated his belief that his 1998 film, Soldier (directed by Paul W.S. Anderson and starring Kurt Russell) took place in the same canonical universe.

While attempts at a Blade Runner sequel have been made for decades, the latest iteration is likely on some level influenced by Scott's return to his first science fiction universe, that of the 1979 film Alien, in the upcoming quasi-prequel, Prometheus.

At this early stage, there is no word of Scott's potential involvement with the future of the Blade Runner property.

Blade Runner Prequel/Sequel Update

Source: ComingSoon

March 5, 2011

Following up on yesterday's announcement that the rights to 1982's Blade Runner appear to be headed to Alcon Entertainment, i09 has spoken with producers Broderick Johnson, Andrew Kosove, and Bud Yorkin. The group has revealed that development plans are in the very, very early stages and that writers will be brought in before the best take is decided on for how to set up another film.

While the "pie in the sky" choice for director is named by Kosove as being Christopher Nolan (who did work with Alcon on Insomnia), the group also teases that Scott's return is not out of the question.

"I think the methodology that Chris Nolan brought to 'Batman' is precisely what we aspire to whomever the filmmaker is," says the producer, "whether Ridley comes back and joins us or it's someone else, it's precisely what we aspire to with 'Blade Runner', that's the template for us."

While he won't specify whether or not contact with Scott has already been established, he does say that Alcon will, at the very least, hope for the director's approval.

"[W]hat we will say is that Ridley Scott's blessing to what we're doing is very important to Alcon," Kosove adds, "It's important to Bud [Yorkin], and certainly we have the greatest degree of respect to him as a filmmaker. He's one of the greatest living directors and one of the greatest directors of all time. So of course he's very important."

Loosely based on the 1968 Philip K. Dick novel, "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?", the original film is heralded as seminal cinematic achievement. The novel actually received three "authorized" sequels, written by K.W. Jeter, a friend of Dick's, entitled "The Edge of Human," "Replicant Night" and "Eye and Talon." David Peoples, the co-writer of the 1982 film, also stated his belief that his 1998 film, Soldier (directed by Paul W.S. Anderson and starring Kurt Russell) took place in the same canonical universe.

While attempts at a Blade Runner sequel have been made for decades, this latest iteration is likely on some level influenced by Scott's return to his first science fiction universe, that of the 1979 film Alien, in the upcoming quasi-prequel, Prometheus.

Original Blade Runner Screenwriter to Write Sequel

Source: ComingSoon

May 17, 2012

Hampton Fancher is in talks to reunite with his Blade Runner director Ridley Scott to develop the idea for the original screenplay for the Alcon Entertainment, Scott Free, and Bud Yorkin produced follow up to the ground-breaking 1982 science fiction classic, it was announced by Alcon co-founders and co-Chief Executive Officers Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove.

The filmmakers are also revealing for the first time that the much-anticipated project is intended to be a sequel to the renowned original. The filmmakers would reveal only that the new story will take place some years after the first film concluded.

The three-time Oscar-nominated Scott and his Blade Runner collaborator Fancher originally conceived of their 1982 classic as the first in a series of films incorporating the themes and characters featured in Philip K. Dick's groundbreaking novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?", from which Blade Runner was adapted. Circumstances, however, took Scott into other directions and the project never advanced.

Fancher, although a writer of fiction, was known primarily as an actor at the time Scott enlisted him to adapt the Dick novel for the screen. Fancher followed his Blade Runner success with the screenplays, The Mighty Quinn (1989) and The Minus Man (1999). He has continued to write fiction throughout his career.

Scott also will produce with Alcon co-founders and co-Chief Executive Officers Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove as well as Bud Yorkin and Cynthia Sikes Yorkin. Frank Giustra and Tim Gamble, CEO's of Thunderbird Films, will serve as executive producers.

The original film, which has been singled out as the greatest science-fiction film of all time by a majority of genre publications, was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant." The film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry in 1993 and is frequently taught in university courses. In 2007, it was named the 2nd most visually influential film of all time by the Visual Effects Society.

State Kosove and Johnson: “It is a perfect opportunity to reunite Ridley with Hampton on this new project, one in fact inspired by their own personal collaboration, a classic of cinema if there ever was one.”

Female Protagonist to Lead Blade Runner Sequel

Source: ComingSoon

May 18, 2012

With the announcement that original Blade Runner co-writer Hampton Fancher is on board for the sequel, director Ridley Scott also revealed a bit more to The Daily Beast.

Yesterday, the filmmakers said that "the much-anticipated project is intended to be a sequel to the renowned original. The filmmakers would reveal only that the new story will take place some years after the first film concluded."

Scott told the site that he "started my first meetings on the Blade Runner sequel last week. We have a very good take on it. And we'll definitely be featuring a female protagonist."

Much like Sigourney Weaver in Alien, Noomi Rapace also leads Scott's Prometheus, which opens in theaters on June 8.

Ridley Scott is next doing The Counselor, but he's also got the Getrude Bell film in the works with Angelina Jolie attached to star.

About that project, he added that it is "a very interesting period piece of a woman in the 1900s whose tramping ground was very much part of Mesopotamia, which we now know of as Iraq. She’s involved with a person called King Faisal, and she was partly instrumental in seeing him to the throne of Iraq. She’s an important political figure."

Ridley Scott Talks Sequels to Prometheus and Blade Runner

by ShockTillYouDrop

October 11, 2012

Prometheus was one of the more controversial films of the summer, but for many fans it left them wanting more. While the sequel isn't exactly a sure thing, director Ridley Scott spoke with Metro about what the proposed film would be.

"Prometheus evolved into a whole other universe. You’ve got a person [Noomi Rapace’s Elizabeth Shaw] with a head in a bag [Michael Fassbender’s David] that functions and has an IQ of 350. It can explain to her how to put the head back on the body and she’s gonna think about that long and hard because, once the head is back on his body, he’s dangerous," he said.

When asked if the film was that easy, he replied, "I wish it was that easy. They’re going off to paradise but it could be the most savage, horrible place. Who are the Engineers?"

The subject then switched to Blade Runner, which Scott has also been very vocal about sequelizing as well. He said: "It’s not a rumour – it’s happening. With Harrison Ford? I don’t know yet. Is he too old? Well, he was a Nexus-6 so we don’t know how long he can live [laughs]. And that’s all I’m going to say at this stage."

Writer Michael Green is in negotiations to do a rewrite of Alcon Entertainment's Blade Runner sequel penned by Hampton Fancher (Blade Runner, The Minus Man, The Mighty Quinn) and to be directed by Ridley Scott. Fancher's original story/screenplay is set some years after the first film concluded.

Alcon co-founders and co-Chief Executive Officers Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove will produce with Bud Yorkin and Cynthia Sikes Yorkin, along with Ridley Scott. Frank Giustra and Tim Gamble, CEO’s of Thunderbird Films, will serve as executive producers.

Alcon and Yorkin previously announced that they are partnering to produce Blade Runner theatrical sequels and prequels, in addition to all television and interactive productions.

The original film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant." The film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry in 1993 and is frequently taught in university courses. In 2007, it was named the 2nd most visually influential film of all time by the Visual Effects Society.

Released by Warner Bros. almost 30 years ago, Blade Runner was adapted by Hampton Fancher and David Peoples from Philip K. Dick's groundbreaking novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" and directed by Scott following his landmark Alien. The film was nominated for two Academy Awards (Best Visual Effects, and Best Art Direction).

Ridley Scott Will Not Direct Blade Runner Sequel, Shares Story Details

SuperHeroHype

Nov 25, 2014

Although plans are still underway for Alcon Entertainment to bring to the big screen a sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1982 sci-fi classic Blade Runner, Scott today reveals to Variety that he is no longer targeting the director’s chair. Having already helped develop the screenplay alongside Hampton Fancher (who, with David Peoples, wrote the original film), Scott remains very active in the sequel’s development, but now says his plan is to serve only as producer with a helmer expected to be announced in the near future.

“We talked at length about what it could be,” Scott tells the trade of the sequel’s story, “and came up with a pretty strong three-act storyline.”

The project, which is planned to go into production next year, should feature the return of Harrison Ford as Rick Deckard. Scott has a few potential spoilers, too, regarding Deckard’s specific role in the story.

“Harrison is very much part of this one,” Scott continues, “But it’s really about finding him. He comes in in the third act.”

Released by Warner Bros., Blade Runner is based on Philip K. Dick’s novel “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” The film was nominated for two Academy Awards (Best Visual Effects, and Best Art Direction).

Scott’s latest, Exodus: Gods and Kings, hits theaters December 12 with his next, The Martian already on track for a November 25, 2015 release.
