Deadline Hollywood is reporting that Ridley Scott has confirmed he will be making another Blade Runner film, though it is unclear if that project will be a prequel or a sequel.
After revisiting his classic Alien with the upcoming 3D Fox film Prometheus, Ridley Scott is committing to direct and produce a film that advances his other seminal and groundbreaking science fiction film. Scott has signed on to direct and produce a new installment of Blade Runner. He’ll make the film with Alcon Entertainment, producing with Alcon partners Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove.
Perhaps at this point in Scott's career, he will be granted final cut on the film, unlike the original, which was recut by studio executives. A later director's cut returned the film to Scott's original vision.
