The guy who wrote 'Green Lantern' (and some other flops) is re-writing the 'Blade Runner' sequel

Michael Green, who co-wrote Warner’s Green Lantern, is in negotiations to work on Alcon’s Blade Runner sequel which is due to be directed by Ridley Scott.

Hampton Fancher, who wrote the original movie, did the initial draft of the sequel.

Loglines are being kept locked but it is known to be set several years after the events of the classic 1982 sci-fi movie starring Harrison Ford and Rutger Hauer.

Alcon’s Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove are producing the sequel with Bud Yorkin and Cynthia Sikes Yorkin, along with Scott.

In addition to Lantern, Green worked on superhero projects The Flash and Fantastic Four.
He recently completed rewrites on Robopocalypse, Steven Spielberg’s recently shelved sci-fi tentpole, as well as Warners’ Moses project Gods and Kings.


This'll end well

It's so boring. I couldn't get through it.

well there are always Michael Bay films

there's a lot going for it that's right up my alley, but I've seen the original, the director's cut, the actual director's cut, the oops just kidding this director's cut and they're all shit.

the book is a million times better, but the film is gorgeous and so important to sci-fi/cyberpunk. so many things wouldn't be what they are 2day w/o blade runner (example: mass effect franchise). so it deserves respect, at the very least tbh.

I need to attempt to watch it again. I think I got through about 15 minutes and fell into a deep sleep, but I love the aesthetic of it.

People give Ridley Scott way too much credit for... like, everything

UGH...i'd rather have a tv show than a sequel
mammary_glands 31st-May-2013 09:05 pm (UTC)
id kill for a really nicely animated series on hbo or something that's based on the source material or the comic.

i'm pretty sure blade runner is my favourite film tbh, i just adore the style and the music and the performances and the gorgeous sci-fi-ness. (even the nasty sex scene can be used to criticise deckard for being a shithead which is a theme of the film imo)

so yeah i might end up having to pretend this never happened :|||

They been trying to make this for years, doubt it'll happen now

god I love Blade runner. I always felt it is incredibly important to Sci Fi/Cyberpunk culture, also because I am into cyberpunk and steampunk so that was very important to me as well. What would things be without its immense and advanced influence?
personalburgers 1st-Jun-2013 06:35 am (UTC)
Philip K Dick is my ultimate fav author, so they should just STAAAHWP right now.

Hated Blade Runner, they fucked the story up so much up. Where the fuck were the electric animals?! Bullshit. Okay, sweet ass set design though.
plasticine_idea 1st-Jun-2013 08:34 am (UTC)
Please, no sequel.

I actually found the book at a book sale (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep) and I'm excited to read it.
