Ridley Scott says Blade Runner and Prometheus sequels are written | Geek-Cetera | Geek.com

The next 3-5 years are looking very promising if you like science fiction and Ridley Scott-directed movies. Scott is preparing to start working on The Martian starring Matt Damon about an astronaut who gets stranded on Mars, but after that… how about a new Blade Runner and Prometheus?

Fans of Blade Runner have long wanted another movie, and it looks as though Scott is set to deliver one over 30 years later. He has confirmed that the new Blade Runner is written and is “damn good.” It’s so good in fact that Scott believes it will tempt Harrison Ford back into the role of Rick Deckard, in fact, his involvement sounds key to the script.

Then we have Prometheus 2. The original split fans into those who loved it and those who clearly did not, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Scott has confirmed a sequel is already written, the only problem being one of time. Scott is finishing up Exodus: Gods and Kings, then there’s The Martian, and Blade Runner looks likely to be the project after that. So if we do get a Prometheus 2, filming can’t realistically start for at least another 3-4 years if Scott intends to direct it. By then he’ll be pushing 80 years old.

We also can’t forget that Harrison Ford is now in his 70′s and recently suffered an ankle fracture while filming Star Wars: Episode VII. He is thought to have recovered well and will hopefully be up for working with Ridley Scott once again. He surely won’t be acting for that much longer, but what a way to finish: Star Wars followed by Blade Runner.
