PostSubject: Blade Runner Screenwriter Hampton Fancher Could Be Back For Sequel   Mon May 21, 2012 12:19 pm

Alcon Entertainment – which will co-produce the new Blade Runner film along with Scott Free and Bud Yorkin – revealed that original Blade Runner
screenwriter Hampton Fancher was in negotiations to collaborate with
Scott on the film, which indeed would be a true sequel to the 1982
masterpiece. In addition, producers confirmed that the new story would
take place a few years after the events of the original film.

The way the story goes, Fancher and Scott always intended to do a series
of films that developed the themes found in Philip K. Dick’s sci-fi
novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, which inspired the original Runner.
But as is often the case in Hollywood, Scott got lured to other
projects, and the collaboration was put on hold for the past 30 years.

“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,” Alcon producers said in a

I think we’ll all agree that three decades isn’t too long to wait if
Scott and Hampton are able to put their heads together and come up with a
movie as flawless as Blade Runner. Rumors have been swirling around that the new Runner
could focus on a female character instead of Harrison Ford’s Deckard
(as the actor has aged significantly since 1982). But with what we’ve
seen of Prometheus, it feels like Scott is getting his sci-fi mojo back … which means genre fans who love his Alien and Blade Runner films could be in for a second career Renaissance from the skilled storyteller.
