'Blade Runner' sequel: Ridley Scott wants Harrison Ford back

Han Solo is not the only Harrison Ford character making a comeback. Ridley Scott wants the actor to reprise the role of Replicant-hunter Rick Deckard for an upcoming Blade Runner sequel.

In a somewhat unusual move, the producers at Alcon Entertainment announced this morning that they are making an offer to the 71-year-old actor to appear in the movie, which obviously would pick up several decades after the events of the original sci-fi tale.

Sean Young talks about the new horror movie 'Jug Face' (and why she may boycott the next 'Blade Runner' movie)

In the new horror movie Jug Face, Sean Young, Larry Fessenden, and Lauren Ashley Carter play members of a backwoods cult which sacrifices people to a pit-dwelling monster. Sounds creepily intriguing? Indeed it does. And we haven’t even mentioned the ghosts. Or the incest. Or, for that matter, the artisanal jug-making.

Harrison Ford talks 'Blade Runner' at AFI event: Memories from production, the 'Is Deckard a Replicant?' debate, and more

Blade Runner was a box office disappointment when it hit theaters in 1982, but since then it has been showered with accolades and developed a significant following that has placed it in the pantheon of great sci-fi movies.

One organization that has been very kind to the gritty neo-noir movie is the American Film Institute. Blade Runner is on AFI’s list of the greatest 100 movies of all time and is No. 6 on the prestigious film school’s list of the best sci-fi movies. The movie’s star, Harrison Ford, was the 28th recipient of the AFI LIfetime Achievement Award.

AFI celebrated the legacy of Blade Runner, along with 11 other classic films, at Arclight Hollywood on Wednesday night for the institute’s third AFI Night at the Movies. Ford was on hand to introduce the screening of Blade Runner: The Final Cut, an edition of the film closer to director Ridley Scott’s original vision for the project that features some notable differences from the theatrical release version, such as the lack of narration.

Here are a few highlights from Ford’s introduction to the film, both some of his dry humor and his memories from making Blade Runner: READ FULL STORY

'Blade Runner,' 'Pulp Fiction,' 'Terms of Endearment' among films to screen at AFI Night at the Movies

Harrison Ford travels across the skyline of a dark, futuristic Los Angeles. Shrek perilously treks over a moat of lava. A man you thought was human grotesquely morphs into an alien creature. These scenes from Blade Runner, Shrek, The Thing, and more will be on the big screen at an event presented by the American Film Institute later this month.

The lineup for the event, AFI Night at the Movies, was unveiled Tuesday. AFI President and CEO Bob Gazzale calls the event “a film festival on speed” — 12 films will screen simultaneously in the Arclight Hollywood on Wednesday, April 24. The event will take over the Los Angeles venue, using every auditorium, including the 32- by 68-foot Cinerama Dome, where 1967 mystery film In the Heat of the Night will screen with an introduction by Sidney Poitier.

Gazzale told EW, “Ultimately what we’re looking for is an evening that crosses genres, everything from animation to romantic comedy to sci-fi, and then also crosses decades. We want to be certain that we’ve got a lifespan of movies here… that shows what the art form does across the years.”

Ridley Scott working on 'Blade Runner' sequel with original film's screenwriter

Thirty years ago, Ridley Scott kickstarted his career with Alien and Blade Runner, a dark pair of weird-future genre flicks that redefined the whole visual grammar of big-screen science-fiction. This summer, Scott is releasing Prometheus, the mysterious semi-prequel to Alien. Now, after many months of rumor-mongering, it looks like the director will be making a return trip to his other sci-fi classic. In a press release, Alcon Entertainment announced that Hampton Fancher, one of the two credited writers on the original Blade Runner, is planning to reunite with Scott to work on a sequel to the movie.
