Despite rumours to the contrary, repeated by far less discerning outlets – Ridley Scott‘s controversial Blade Runner sequel won’t feature Harrison Ford reprising his role as the Replicant hunter, Rick Deckard, and no overtures have been made to the veteran actor.
“It is absolutely patently false that there has been any discussion about Harrison Ford being in Blade Runner,” confirmed producer Andrew Kosove.
“To be clear, what we are trying to do with Ridley now is go through the painstaking process of trying to break the back of the story, figure out the direction we’re going to take the movie and find a writer to work on it. The casting of the movie could not be further from our minds at this moment.
“It’s like asking if we’re going to make the sky red or blue, there has been no discussion about it. What Ridley does in Prometheus is a good template for what we’re trying to do.
“He created something that has some association to the original Alien, but lives on its own as a standalone movie. In advance of knowing what we’re going to do, I supposed you could say yes, he could. But I think it is quite unlikely.”
