‘Blade Runner’ Sequel: Harrison Ford Confirmed; Denis Villeneuve In Talks To Direct

Deadline

Denis Villeneuve is in negotiations to direct the sequel to Blade Runner, with Harrison Ford previously asked but now confirmed to be reprising his role as Rick Deckard. Ridley Scott, who directed the iconic 1982 sci-fi pic for Warner Bros, is aboard to executive produce for Alcon Entertainment.

The film is scheduled to start principal photography in summer 2016. Hampton Fancher — who co-wrote the original with David Peoples — and Michael Green have written the original screenplay based on an idea by Fancher and Scott. The story takes place several decades after the conclusion of the 1982 film, which was based on the Philip K. Dick novel Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?

1000 voices speak up for compassion The #1000Speak for Compassion movement is here, February 20, 2015.

I am proud to take part in the #1000Speakmovement for compassion and here is my contribution with this post. I thought about what to write and then got hard on myself, judging whether the concept I came up with would ultimately meet readers’ expectations. Then I thought of this Faulkner quote:

The work never matches the dream of perfection the artist has to start with. ~William Faulkner
