Well, this is promising: it seems original "Blade Runner" scribe Hampton Fancher is in negotiations to write a concept for a sequel to Ridley Scott's 1982 sci-fi classic.
Last spring, Alcon Entertainment announced that the studio was hoping to develop prequels and sequels to the first film, and according to the Hollywood Reporter they're getting closer to establishing a follow-up to the first movie.
Although neither Alcon Entertainment nor director Scott elected to provide plot details for the sequel, they did say that it'll take place "some years after" the conclusion of the first film.
Based on Philip K. Dick's "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?," the first "Blade Runner," starring Harrison Ford, didn't perform well upon release but now stands as one of the best sci-fi movies of all time.
As a result, Alcon said previously that they know the importance of their proposed project.
"We recognize the responsibility we have to do justice to the memory of the original with any prequel or sequel we produce," the studio told THR last year. "We have long-term goals for the franchise, and are exploring multi-platform concepts, not just limiting ourselves to one medium."
Last August, Scott signed on to direct. The filmmaker's newest offering, "Prometheus," arrives June 8.
When's the remake of Jack and Jill?
This is a terrible idea. Hollywood has lost all creativity. My question is, who's going to make it? According to the numbers, no one works in Hollywood anymore. Piracy has made them loose more jobs in a month than the whole inductry ever employed so I'm a bit confused.
I could see a sequel. New Blade Runner story. NOT another with Harrison Ford or his character.
But please no prequel! It's always the kiss of death.
"We have long-term goals for the franchise, and are exploring multi-platform concepts" ~ I think they meant to say "exploiting", not exploring.
No, it is NOT promising. These "sequels" almost never turn out good., especially after such a long gap.
Risky, of course – Blade Runner is a special, special film with a unique tone that I can't imagine even Scott recreating 30 years later – but if they'd like a go, I say you have this fan's cautious blessing. There are no sacred cows in art. Be bold; take risks. Bring it!
So...about the Blade Runner sequel...
Scott spent too much time describing the trash can of the future. No need to see the other side, just let the can sit empty.
Don't do it. The existing film is excellent, and its ambiguity is one of its most compelling aspects. There are a lot of question raised that I don't want answered – their lack of resolution is what makes the film so haunting.
Just leave it alone.
Don't worry, your questions won't be answered and there will be no resolution. It's all about money, follow the money...
O.K.. but the sequel has to explain what "Fiery the angels fell..." really means! ;) Besides, "Total Recall 2070" was the (unofficial) sequel to "Blade Runnner." Discover that great Canadian TV series if you haven't already seen it.
With modern film making I'll be willing to bet a sequel would be awesome eye candy. However, the pace of the story will need to move a little faster than the original and with more action, if it's going to be a hit in today's market.
Yeah, the original also needed faster pacing and more action to be a hit, which is why it wasn't. But it was awesome. So I'd be psyched if they made another great movie even if it wasn't a hit.
Sooo ture. But even if it is not action packed, I'm still gonna watch it.
I I want my Matrix prequel/sequel!!!!!!!
H*ll Yeah! Since the Matrix started with Neo being freeed from the Matrix I don't think there is anything worthy of a prequel. A sequel with Neo's return to fight an all new virus program with the ability to end the machines rule once and for all would be good.... especially if the virus messed things up enough for a lot of people (with valuable skills) to be freed from the Matrix. I get goose bumps just thinking about all the possibilities!
You all are acting like a bunch of 10 year olds...morons
? So? Why take it personally? Not everyone can be as mature, stoic, calm as you.
The first movie and probably this one makes me think of what the United Nations has in store for us under UN Agenda 21. They intend to only allow 500M people to live on the planet and those people will live in highrise population concentration centers. Google UN Agenda 21 and read for yourself. You can guess what they have in store for 9 out of 10 of us. Have a nice day.
You don't actually BELIEVE that garbage, do you?
Barnum and Bailey were right....
neytron is dead
If I was Sarah Palin I'd stand on my head and pack my nostrils full of fresh bird droppings.
What is that, some new way to get high? ;)

I'm not starrfire, you moron. Even if I was, I would avoid you like the plague! Why would any self respecting woman want any part of you in the first place? If you were the last man on earth, i'd rather turn g ay than be with anyone as disgusting as you. Now, we will all be waiting for one of your witty remarks. We know you can't let it go.
Go pleeze bub bye.

I hope I dont get arrested today bc I woke up in a very happy and weird mood and you fxxkers are not going to take me to your evil place. here is a thought. Go and do us all a favor and killl ur fxxken selves.
Yeah, whatever eddie boy. You take yourself to your evil place all by yourself. You have nobody to blame but you. The rest of all the bloggers are unfortunate enough just to have to read your vile rants. You are the problem, nobody else. What a sad life you must live!
Not even i can kill charlie crack that m'fuker.
You are so lame and totally predictable. Mr Ed, why do you have such a crush for Charlie Crack? Do you miss him so much you have the need to be him? SAD! Lmao.

This has gone on long enough. Cease and desist at once. This blog is for everyone, not just the few who want to make trouble. We already know your IP address. You have been warned.

I'm a soar loser and nobody will be happy on here again once am around. if my friends and I cant rule these blogs nobody will. I brag about a life that I do not have bc Im a tug on marquee.

Charlie crack and my w h0res that's what all the other sw!ngers calls up. Am the king of swing. i envy mr ed thou. wish i was hu.ng like him : (
So, eddie, just gave yourself away. Didn't know you admired cc as much as you do. You really need to get yourself a real woman. , so you can stop your fantasizing about being with women who would absolutely reject you. Better get back to your blow-up doll, before she goes soft. Lmao
Peace doesn't mind it bc i'm too busy fxxking her in the a55. she suck on starrfire and make her clean. she cleans her like if she was a cat
When i eat out starrfire pu55y it taste like shrimp. It makes me sick. i keep telling her to wash her smelling k.unt but she is 2 nasty
@Observer hahaha,I thought you weren't falling for me?You're weak and tired,go put on your little black after five dress on and your f uck me pumps and take a stroll on the boulevard,you might get enough for a twenty dollar rock if you try really hard.
Obviously you have some kind of problem. Miss your meds today? Straighjacket on too tight?
@unknown my a55,Observer you can't resist this sh!t.I thought I told you hit the streets b!tch lmao!
got to the corner and your mama had already blown all the homeless dudes for a buck each.
I apologize to you for my last comment because dealing with your kind (you and your friends) aren't worth the aggravation. Why stoop to trash level like you and your kind. Let's face it, everyone knows how you and your bunch can keep it going when you're ready. Peace out. Oh, I'm I allow to even use that word "Peace"?
@@hc- wow, are you ever obsessed with everyone on this blog. You've been on here all day, ragging on everyone, just trying to cause trouble. Time to take that midol & go lay down for a while. I'm sure you'll be in a more happy place when you get up. Man, you must have a really unhappy life! Go enjoy life for a change!
Excuse the typos. I know you will point that out. meant don't and mine.
Was I talking to you? Typical of you to always put your two cents in. Lets try it? This blog doesn't mean sh!t to me so why do i care if wyww is gone (it's gone for one day, don't cry. It will be back next week I'm sure) or if the whole d@mn Marquee is gone for that fact. One set of people screwed it up for others and the leader of that brunch killed it by his present when he got his stupid braging a55 on here last year May. That's when these blogs went to hell. So don't blame anyone but you and your friend charlie crack. Give it a rest, no why do you for once try and do so? You just had to come on here and had to put your two cent worth after I made my last comment. Watch, you'll come back with another comment after reading mind. Stupid b!tch .
As long as the original writer is doing the script, I would go see it. I draw the line at action figures and lunchboxes, etc.
And you're right..it is tiresome and not worth all the b/s drama. Sorry for putting my nose in where it didn't belong. Enjoy your weekend.
Oh whatever. Who cares anymore. Have a nice day as well.
You would know about that because that's what you do. Also, why do you always refer to "the rest of us"? See charlie crack is at it again.
Wrong again. Not cc. If you follow the timeline, you will see Neytron started the personal attacks, which are typical of a weak mind with no skill at expressing himself. Are you in that club too? I find it quite tiresome to engage in a battle of wits with an unarmed opponent. Good day to you.
@@blue ink observer~when someone refers to "the rest of us", I would assume that would mean all people who just post & don't troll. There are those of "us" who wish you trolls would just knock it off. Is it your intent to completely destroy this blog? First wyww gone, next the whole marquee? Think about that, would you please.
@Observer,suck my dick.
I'll need some tweezers and a microscope to find it first!
@Observer,also your mother didn't need tweezers or a microscope to find my dick this morning,she found out how"small" it was after she was gaging on it.lol Got to admit she's a real trooper,she even swallowed.
We expect a great show and are eager to watch same.
We are thrilled and giigly that he i moving forward.
He is the best writer in the business.
@neytron.... dude, you don't know me. you only said that cuz you're a troll, looking for conflict. i'm not falling for it. find someone else to annoy. adios!
You're right I don't know you but I know of you and I don't care to know you geek!
neytron you obviously are suffering from low self-esteem brought on by an incredibly small pen!s, coupled with an enormous, misshapen head and a fetish for your mother's frilly undergarments. Go get some lotion and Kleenex, sneak into mommy's closet and leave the rest of us alone.
Damn, you're good. I thought no one knew about that.
we need some enterprising technology guru to come up with a REAL pleasure model. he'll make a fortune just on sales to basement-dwelling sci-fi geeks everywhere.
Sci-fi geeks in the basement like you.
That movie was so frikkin awesome it will be hard to improve upon. Rachel, the pleasure model. Ohh, yes. it'll be tough to beat the original's casting, too. The characters were so perfect.
