Ridley Scott to direct and produce ‘new version’ of Blade Runner

Project is in the early stages, possibly a sequel or a prequel.

Ridley Scott is revisiting Blade Runner, according to Deadline. The director has put his name down to produce and direct what is being described as a ‘new instalment’ of the film, but details are unclear over what that entails, whether it could be a follow-up or a prequel. The movie is being produced by Alcon Entertainment, which obtained the Blade Runner rights earlier in the year.

Well, we didn’t see this coming. Scott is revisiting the Alien franchise with Prometheus, so what could this possibly be? Warner will distribute the film, whenever it’s ready. So, what do you think of all this?
