When the 1982 movie Blade Runner was released, it was considered a little bit of a flop, struggling at the box office and not receiving the best of reviews from the critics but, as has been the case with a number of movies over the years, Blade Runner still managed to become a huge success and build up a very big fanbase over the past few decades.
There have been many call for Ridley Scott to make a Blade Runner sequel over the years, with Harrison Ford returning to star in the movie and, while we have yet to see this actually happen, it could just be a matter of time. Ridley has mentioned in the past that he regularly thinks about doing Blade Runner 2, while Harrison has now admitted that he would love to work with the talented director again.
Ford was taking part in a Reddit Q&A session when he explained, "I'm quite curious and excited about seeing a new script for Blade Runner if in fact the opportunity would exist to do another, if it's a good script I would be very anxious to work with Ridley Scott again, he's a very talented and passionate filmmaker. And I think it would be very interesting to revisit the character."
While there is still no real word on a Blade Runner sequel, with the project still classed as being in the treatment stage, it is believed that original Blade Runner writer Hampton Fancher is back on board to help with the Blade Runner 2 screenplay. In our opinion, a Blade Runner sequel starring Harrison Ford will never happen, more likely the franchise will end up getting a reboot.
