Ridley Scott Says BLADE RUNNER 2 Script Written; Likely Shoot Before PROMETHEUS Sequel

Scott's next movie will be another sci-fi adaptation called The Martian with Matt Damon, but once he's done with that the director tells EW he'll be moving right on to the sequels to both Prometheus and Blade Runner; with the latter shooting first.


Ridley Scott is nothing if not busy. The iconic director is currently putting the finishing touches to Exodus: Gods and Monsters starring Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton, and then he'll be moving on to an adaptation of Andy Weir’s sci-fi novel, The Martian, which is set to star Matt Damon. But where does that leave these sequels to Blade Runner and Prometheus we've been promised? Well, according to Scott they're still happening, and Blade Runner 2 will probably be his next project after The Martian. “It’s written and it’s damn good,” Scott says of the planned sequel to his 1982 classic “Of course it involves Harrison [Ford], who is a survivor after all these years—despite the accident (referencing the actor's Star Wars set mishap). So yes, that will happen.” Ford has not officially signed on to star in the film yet, but if he's willing to revisit Han Solo after all these years, there's nothing to say he won't also step back into Rick Deckard's trench-coat. Of course if Blade Runner is next, that means it could well be a few years before we see a follow yp to Prometheus. "That’s the problem,” Scott says. “I’ve got a lot of ducks in a row. But they’re all written.” More at the link below.
