After revisiting both Indiana Jones and Han Solo in recent years, it looks like Harrison Ford will be reprising another one of his iconic roles from the late ’70s/early ’80s. It’s being reported that a sequel to Blade Runner is in the works, and Ford is set to star in it. Ridley Scott will not be the director of this new film.
The original Blade Runner was loosely based on Do Androids Dream of Electric Sleep? by Philip K. Dick. This sequel will not be based on Dick’s novel but rather will be an original story. Philip K. Dick’s works have been popular with filmmakers for decades, although most of them don’t hew too closely to the original source material.
