Ridley Scott to Direct New Blade Runner Film

Posted by at 12:23 am on August 19, 2011

Ridley Scott has signed on to direct a new entry in the Bladeunner film series. Based on the story “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?”, the original Bladerunner film, which starred Harrison Ford, premiered nearly thirty years ago and has been a fan favorite since.

Not A Reboot

Alcon Productions, who purchased the rights to the original Bladrunner and for whom Scott will be directing the new film have announced it will be “either a prequel or a sequel” but that Scott has not yet chosen which.

The 73-year-old director and producer last year directed “Robin Hood,” and just wrapped up “Prometheus” with Charlize Theron, which will come out in 2012.

Alcon co-founders and co-CEOs Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove will produce the new film with Yorkin, Cynthia Sikes Yorkin and Scott. Frank Giustra and Tim Gamble, CEOs of Thunderbird Films, will serve as executive producers.
