Ridley Scott is Trapped in the 80s
Ridley Scott is already signed on to direct a remake of Alien and now it appears he’ll also be making a remake of Blade Runner.
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. This would be the most high profile project for Alcon since The Blind Side.
Well, it’s now official that every director in Hollywood has run out of ideas. Can’t wait for the Gladiator prequel starring a bloated Russel Crowe.
This is just the first step and the project will have to be written and it will likely evolve during that process.
Oh, so this movie that Scott is definitely doing isn’t even written yet? Don’t get your hopes up. Tony Scott (Ridley’s brother) will probably make at least three movies about trains starring Denzel Washington before we see a Blade Runner remake.
