Forget Indiana Jones and Han Solo — it sounds like Harrison Ford’s other iconic sci-fi role might also be coming out of retirement.
After Prometheus, Ridley Scott got on a sequel kick, and we’ve been hearing for a while now that he was tinkering with a followup to his legendary classic Blade Runner. Well, apparently he’s also been talking to former Replicant-hunter Ford about the gig.
Ford opened up to IGN about the project and revealed he’s been meeting with Scott about the movie, specifically his potential involvement. He also drops the bombshell that he’d be “happy” to work with Scott again to bring the world of Blade Runner back to life. Yes, please.
Here’s an excerpt:
“Yeah, we’ve been chatting about it… I truly admire Ridley as a man and as a director, and I would be very happy to engage again with him in the further telling of this story.”
We’ve heard a lot of conflicting reports about the potential Blade Runner followup, but if Ford is involved, color us intrigued. For one thing, how exactly would that work ... especially considering the open-ended style of the original film. Hmm.

What do you think? Should Deckard return to kick a little more ass?
