In light of the recent reports about Harrison Ford reprising his role of Rick Deckard in the new Blade Runner movie, Alcon Entertainment has issued a statement denying such rumors.  Speaking exclusively with Deadline New York, Producer Andrew Kosove had this to say about it:

“It is absolutely patently false that there has been any discussion about Harrison Ford being in Blade Runner,” Kosove told me. “To be clear, what we are trying to do with Ridley now is go through the painstaking process of trying to break the back of the story, figure out the direction we’re going to take the movie and find a writer to work on it. The casting of the movie could not be further from our minds at this moment.”

Kosove was quick to add that they were in no way disparaging Harrison Ford but added this:

“It’s like asking if we’re going to make the sky red or blue, there has been no discussion about it.  What Ridley does in Prometheus is a good template for what we’re trying to do. He created something that has some association to the original Alien, but lives on its own as a standalone movie.”

When asked point blank if Ford could appear, Kosove had this to say:

“In advance of knowing what we’re going to do, I supposed you could say yes, he could. But I think it is quite unlikely.”
