Over the weekend came the a report that Harrison Ford was in early negotiations to appear in Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner project. Then, on Monday, Alcon Entertainment producer Andrew Kosove denied the rumors, and stated that they were still early in the story development stage. However, Kosove would not deny that there was a possibility that Ford would appear. Now, EW has spoken with Scott himself who confirms that, while Ford is certainly not in talks, he’d be happy to work with the actor again depending on what shape the script takes.
“We’re still in discussions about whether it should be a prequel or sequel,” said Scott, who is currently uncertain if Ford’s character of Rick Deckard will even appear. “It’s an interesting conversation. I’m meeting with writers and I’ve also gone back to Hampton Fancher and he still speaks the speak. He’s right there. I spoke with him this week. But we don’t even have a script yet.”
When talking about working with Ford again if the script would involve the Deckard character, Scott expressed some pleasure at the possibility of a reunion with his former star. “I’m not sure that that’s going to be a story point,” he says, “so I don’t know. But if it were, nothing would please me more. Honestly.”
Scott also would n0t give a time table for when fans might see a return to the world of Blade Runner. “I’m also thinking about what the hell I might do for a Prometheus 2,” he teased.
