Harrison Ford 'Curious and Excited' About 'Blade Runner 2' Possibility
The "Star Wars" and "Indiana Jones" actor says that, if the script was good enough, he'd be "very anxious" to work with Ridley Scott on the long-rumored follow-up to the 1982 sci-fi classic.
Adding fuel to the fires of hope that lurk within the hearts of many a science fiction fan, Harrison Ford has expressed an openness to the possibility of appearing in a sequel to Ridley Scott classic Blade Runner.
Scott has talked about returning to the world of his 1982 adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep on numerous occasions, with the project being referred to as a sequel or prequel at different times. Most recently, Scott definitively said that a sequel was happening, although he “didn’t know yet” whether or not Ford would be involved.
During a Reddit AMA session this weekend, Ford was asked about the prospect of such a sequel. “I’m quite curious and excited about seeing a new script for Blade Runner if in fact the opportunity would exist to do another,” he replied.
“If it’s a good script I would be very anxious to work with Ridley Scott again, he’s a very talented and passionate filmmaker,” he continued. “I think it would be very interesting to revisit the character.”
Asked elsewhere during the question and answer session about whether or not he believed that his Blade Runner character was actually a replicant, Ford dodged the question by saying that he thought “that it’s a wonderful storytelling mechanism for that question to be left unanswered… I love that people are still curious about it.”
