Harrison Ford Approached for ‘Blade Runner’ Sequel
Harrison Ford has been approached to appear in a sequel to Blade Runner.
The 71-year-old action movie star is being sought to reprise his role as bounty hunter Rick Deckhard in a sequel to the sci-fi classic, originally released in 1982. Already on board with the project are Ridley Scott, who directed the original movie, and Hampton Fancher, who adapted the screenplay from Philip K. Dick's book Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove, founders of Alcon Entertainment, who are developing the movie, told The Hollywood Reporter, "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."
Harrison is already re-living his glory days with his current project, reprising his role as Han Solo for the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII.
