Michael Green, who co-wrote Warner Bros.’ Green Lantern, is in negotiations to work on Alcon’s Blade Runner sequel, which is to be directed by Ridley Scott.

Hampton Fancher, who wrote the original movie, did the initial draft of the sequel.

Loglines are being kept locked but it is known to be set several years after the events of the classic 1982 sci-fi movie starring Harrison Ford and Rutger Hauer.
