New Blade Runner without Harrison Ford?

Following up with the announcement that Ridley Scott is returning to helm another Blade Runner film, producer Andrew Kosove is not interested in having Harrison Ford return to the Rick Deckard role. Kosove told the LA Times blog: “But if you’re asking me will this movie have anything to do with Harrison Ford, the answer is no. This is a total reinvention, and in my mind that means doing everything fresh, including casting.” Kosove, from Alcon Entertainment, also reports that the earliest that shooting could begin would be early 2013, meaning that the soonest that the film could be out would be 2014.

  1. Gladiator in space? Harrison Ford as Marcus Aurelius? Okay, let’s get to it then. :-)

    Blade Runner II on the other hand: Meh… Better to hand it over to Rockstar Games and let them GTA it. :-)

  2. Hmm. Well. That puts a damper on my interest. Not the absence of Ford, mind you, but the presence of a producer saying things like “complete reinvention” and “doing everything fresh.” Producers should never be allowed to say things like that. Producers should never be allowed to talk.
