'Blade Runner' Sequel Getting a Re-Write Before That Still Gets Made
It's been just over a year since we heard that Blade Runner co-writer Hampton Fancher was returning to script the sequel, offering hope that with director Ridley Scott, the two septuagenarians might recapture at least some of the magic they can remember of the original. But evidently that screenplay was not up to the high standards of the producers of Dude, Where's My Car, P.S. I Love You, and What To Expect When You're Expecting, because today brings news that Alcon Entertainment is working on bringing in Michael Green for a rewrite. Green recently did new drafts for Spielberg's indefinitely postponed Robopocalypse and the Moses film Gods and Kings, and assuming this writer Michael Green is the same as this one, he's dishearteningly one of several guys credited on Green Lantern. Plot details for the film aren't known, but Harrison Ford is not expected to return. So there goes the theory Green will just be adding in variations of "I'm gettin' too old for this runnin' shit."
