Warner Bros-based Alcon Entertainment has made an offer to Harrison Ford to reprise the role of Rick Deckard in its Blade Runner sequel.
Ridley Scott will reprise the reins on the sci-fi project that takes place several decades after the end of his 1982 modern classic. Plot details remain under the proverbial wraps.
“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,” said Alcon co-founders and co-CEO’s Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson.
“We would be honoured, and we are hopeful, that Harrison will be part of our project.”
Alcon Entertainment acquired the film, television and ancillary franchise rights in 2011 from producer Bud Yorkin to make prequels and sequels to the iconic science-fiction thriller.
Yorkin will serve as a producer on the sequel along with Kosove and Johnson. Thunderbird Films CEOs Frank Giustra and Tim Gamble will serve as executive producers.
