Ridley Scott to Direct New Blade Runner Alcon Entertainment slated to produce upcoming sequel or prequel By Neal Colgrass, Newser Staff Posted Aug 18, 2011 2:52 PM CDT 5 comments Comments Harrison Ford takes aim in the original "Blade Runner" (1982). No word yet whether Ford will return and renew his troubled relationship with director Ridley Scott in a planned new version of the film. (MovieWeb) (Newser) – "I've seen things you people wouldn't believe..." But would the infamous replicant leader in Blade Runner believe that director Ridley Scott is making a new version of the 1982 sci-fi classic? Sequel or prequel, nobody seems to know—and Harrison Ford's participation is a question mark (he reportedly hated Scott)—but The Blind Side producer Alcon Entertainment will begin development, Deadline.com reports. This on the heels of Scott's Prometheus, an upcoming 3D pic that loosely revisits the Alien franchise.
