While speaking with Variety, director Ridley Scott revealed he has no plans to direct the anticipated Blade Runner sequel developed with co-writer Hampton Fancher. However, fans can still expect to see Harrison Ford return to his iconic role as Rick Deckard.
"We talked at length about what it could be, and came up with a pretty strong three-act storyline, and it all makes sense in terms of how it relates to the first one," the filmmaker said. "Harrison is very much part of this one, but really it’s about finding him; he comes in in the third act."
According to Scott, the Blade Runner sequel will likely begin filming in 2015, although no director has been announced. Scott will serve as producer.
Scott's comments are the closest to confirmation that the Blade Runner sequel will be made. He revealed in August that the script was set but he was unable to say when the film would happen due to his busy schedule.
