Harrison Ford In Talks For "Blade Runner" Sequel ?

According to internet reports, actor Harrison Ford has entered into 'early talks' to appear in director Ridley Scott's developing sequel to his original 1982 "Blade Runner" feature.

The biggest question posed in the original "Blade Runner" film, set in Los Angeles, in the year 2019, is whether or not 'Rick Deckard', the "one-man slaughterhouse", forced into killing android 'replicants', is also unknowingly, a replicant himself.

To see a haunted Ford in a secondary role as the aged Deckard, freaked out, guilt-racked and even deadlier when his true identity is revealed to him, could play like a grizzled Clint Eastwood in "The Unforgiven".

Scott's "Blade Runner" film was based on author Philip K Dick's novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep".

"It would be a gross understatement to say that we are elated Ridley Scott will shepherd this iconic story into a new, exciting direction," said producers Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove.

"This is a once in a lifetime project for us. Everything Ridley does as a filmmaker is fresh."

In "Blade Runner" Ford portrays retired ex-cop Deckard, who hunts down and terminates a group of genetically engineered replicants, led by insane 'Roy Batty' (Rutger Hauer) and his lover 'Pris' ( Daryl Hannah).
