Ridley Scott may still be undecided about whether he’s going to direct Blade Runner 2, but the filmmaker is still determined to push ahead with the sequel to his 1982 sci-fi classic, and now he’s offered a brief update to MTV, with the Exodus: Gods and Kings helmer saying the script is the best thing Harrison Ford has ever read.
“I sent him [the script] and he said ‘wow, this is the best thing I’ve ever read’ so it’s very relevant to what happened [in] the first one. [With] Blade Runner we kind of landed on a somehow very credible future. And it’s very difficult to change that because it’s been so influential with everything else.”
Blade Runner 2 is currently slated to go into production in 2015, meaning that it’s likely we’ll see another director stepping in for the sequel, given that Scott is currently prepping The Martian and has Prometheus 2 following that.
