Is it possible that we could get another Blade Runner story? The 80-year-old writer and director Ridley Scott is up to the challenge. Scott told Digital Spy "I think there is another story. I've got another one ready to evolve and be developed, so there is certainly one to be done for sure."
Scott’s cult classic Blade Runner debuted in 1982 and there were a number of cuts released, so we’re not surprised that he has more to say with the beloved Phillip K. Dick series based on Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. It’s no secret that he had some critiques and qualms with Denis Villeneuve’s sequel Blade Runner 2049 (Scott executive produced) that was well received by critics and audiences, but didn’t score well at the box office.
If this is going to happen then someone at Warner Bros should greenlight it soon because Scott is in high demand these days. The Martian failed to deliver Scott an Oscar but maybe he his luck will turn around with All the Money in the World that’s currently in the running. We’re still waiting to hear if Disney will have Scott direct The Merlin Saga adaption based on T.A. Barron’s fantasy series.
Do you think Scott should return to the director’s chair and take on Blade Runner again, or is it time he let it go and we let someone fresh blood give it a shot?
