‘Blade Runner 2′: Harrison Ford Is Chatting With Ridley Scott About Returning

Blade Runner 2 Harrison Ford
Warner Bros.

Director Ridley Scott has been playing around with the idea of a ‘Blade Runner 2‘ for some time now, though the sequel to his classic sci-fi film has only recently made progress by adding a new screenwriter. But the question on Scott’s mind is, Will original star Harrison Ford return as Rick Deckard? It turns out there’s already been strides to make this happen.

The director, who brought us ‘Prometheus‘ and is ready to release ‘The Counselor,’ has already expressed a desire to have Ford back, saying he’s “got to have him in it somewhere.” Though, speaking with IGN during press rounds for his upcoming ‘Ender’s Game,’ the ‘Indiana Jones’ star nonchalantly revealed that he has indeed been “chatting about ['Blade Runner 2']” with Scott.

While the director also joked previously about Ford’s age, the actor is by no means slowing down. Aside from ‘Ender’s Game,’ the movie adaptation of Orson Scott Card’s young-adult novel, he’s also got roles coming up in ‘The Expendables 3‘ and ‘Anchorman 2,’ and he’s been said to join ‘Star Wars: Episode 7.’ If he indeed is back for ‘Blade Runner 2,’ Scott has teased that it might not be in a leading role. “Is he too old?”

Original ‘Blade Runner’ scribe Hampton Francher wrote a draft for ‘Blade Runner 2,’ which is getting a rewrite from┬áMichael Green (‘Heroes,’ ‘Green Lantern’). And aside from Ford, Katy Perry has expressed interest in taking over the role of Rachael (formerly played by Sean Young), “if Ridley would just call!”
