Blade Runner Sequel to Feature Female Protagonist

Blade Runner (1982) - Sean Young

Speaking with The Beast in the lead-up to the long-awaited Prometheus, director Ridley Scott has revealed some details about the forthcoming Blade Runner sequel.

Funny enough, I started my first meetings on the Blade Runner sequel last week. We have a very good take on it. And we’ll definitely be featuring a female protagonist.

The interesting part of all of the news this week is that it will definitely be a sequel, with the press reveal yesterday that “the much-anticipated project is intended to be a sequel to the renowned original. The filmmakers would reveal only that the new story will take place some years after the first film concluded”.

Original screenwriter Hampton Fancher, who wrote the 1982 classic with David Webb Peoples based on the Philip K. Dick novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, will return to pen a draft of the film.

Sean Young’s still working. Just saying.
