Ridley Scott is Directing the New Blade Runner


Back in August, it was revealed that Ridley Scott would be returning to the Blade Runner universe in some form; but it wasn’t known if he would actually be directing the new movie. Now Scott has confirmed to the Wall Street Journal’s Speakeasy blog that he will be directing the new Blade Runner and that he’s just now looking for a writer to work on it with him:

“I think I’m close to finding a writer that might be able to help me deliver,” Scott says, “we’re quite a long way in, actually.”

Even cooler, the article confirms that the movie will likely be a sequel to the original movie and when asked if there would be no Deckard, Scott said “No, not really.”
