Well, I guess the upcoming “Semi-Prequel-to-Alien-Prometheus” film lit a spark in director Ridley Scott:
After revisiting his classic Alien with the upcoming 3D Fox film Prometheus, Ridley Scott is committing to direct and produce a film that advances his other seminal and groundbreaking science fiction film. Scott has signed on to direct and produce a new installment of Blade Runner. He’ll make the film with Alcon Entertainment, producing with Alcon partners Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove. This would be the most high profile project for Alcon since The Blind Side.
Harrison Ford seems rejuvenated after Cowboys & Aliens, so maybe they’ll bring him back too.
