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.”

Harrison Ford Possible for ‘Blade Runner’ Sequel

Twitch is reporting that Harrison Ford is in early talks to join the new Blade Runner.  If this is the real deal, I’m liking it.  I wasn’t crazy about the idea of a remake to begin with, and sequel has a much nicer ring to it.  Still, it’s a curious development in light of Producer Andrew Kosove’s previous statement to the contrary.

In no way do I speak for Ridley Scott but if you’re asking me will this movie have anything to do with Harrison Ford, the answer is no. This is a total reinvention and in my mind that means doing everything fresh, including casting.

Apparently Ridley Scott disagreed, and although it’s been rumored to be a remake, plenty of other sources refer to this movie as the next installment of Blade Runner.
