Sean Young Talks BLADE RUNNER Sequel & Her Interpretation Of 'Rachael' In the Original Film
The actress who played 'Rachael' in Ridley Scott's 1982 film has confirmed in the recent interview that she had a meeting with Alcon Entertainment about the new Blade Runner film. Check out what she had to say...
So, it's been known for a while now that Ridley Scott is set to direct a new installment of Blade Runner for Alcon Entertainment. According to many, the 1982 film which was based on Philip K. Dick's novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, is one of the greatest science-fiction films of all time, and Scott said that he wants to explore more of this universe. If this is indeed a sequel as they say, what about the original cast? In a recent interview with Crave Online, Sean Young confirmed that she met with Alcon Entertainment about the new film. More below:
"Well, I did meet with Alcon, the company that owns it and is planning to do the remake with Ridley. I did meet with them, but I think at that point they just wanted to meet me and I don’t think they have any plans of using any of the original people, although I can’t say for sure. I do think, let me just say it right here, I do think it would be a disappointment to the audience not to have Rachel in it but you know what, folks in Hollywood make mistakes all the time."
She also shared her thoughts regarding 'Rachael', who is supposed to be a NEXUS-6 prototype:
"Oh no, in the interpretation I’m the one that has no end date. I’m the one that rides off in the car with him at the end that has no end date. I’m Nexus-7, not Nexus-6."
Ridley Scott already said that 'Deckard' is definitely NEXUS-6 model, and they only have a four-year lifespan. It will be interesting to see where they take the story for the next film. Are you looking forward to the new Blade Runner movie?
