Harrison Ford officially offered ‘Blade Runner’ sequel role

Blade Runner poster art Harrison FordAlcon Entertainment issued a press release officially announcing they have offered Harrison Ford the opportunity to reprise his role as Rick Deckard in Ridley Scott‘s Blade Runner sequel. This is a very odd move for a production company to announce that they’re courting an actor; usually, press releases state that the actor is officially on board. 

Ford has expressed his interest in returning for the sequel on multiple occasions.  The press release doesn’t provide any details on the story other than saying it takes place several decades after the original. 

“Warner Bros-based Alcon Entertainment (‘Prisoners,’ ‘The Blind Side,’ ‘The Book of Eli’) has an offer out to Harrison Ford to reprise his celebrated role of Rick Deckard in its Ridley Scott-directed sequel to ‘Blade Runner,’ it was announced by Alcon co-founders and co-CEO’s Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson,” the statement announced.

Hampton Fancher (co-writer of the 1982 adaptation) and Michael Green are the screenwriters and the Alcorn heads praise their creators.

“We believe that Hampton Fancher and Michael Green have crafted with Ridley Scott an extraordinary sequel to one of the greatest films of all time. We would be honored, and we are hopeful, that Harrison will be part of our project.”

Collider published the full press release, check it out HERE.

Director Ridley Scott would likely not get to this film for awhile: he’s currently in talks to direct The Martian starring Matt Damon and a likely Prometheus sequel.
