Movie News: Ridley Scott Teases BLADE RUNNER Sequel Deets...

Well that didn't take long! Hot on the heels of today's news that screenwriter Hampton Fancher is in negotiations to pen the BLADE RUNNER sequel, comes a small update from Ridley himself. In an interview with The Daily Beast, the director dropped the following:

"Funny enough, I started my first meetings on the Blade Runner sequel last week. We have a very good take on it. And we’ll definitely be featuring a female protagonist."

Considering Scott penchant for strong female leads - Ripley, G.I. Jane, and presumably, PROMETHEUS' Elizabeth Shaw - this shouldn't come as much of a surprise. But still, it's good to have at least something to go on.

We'll have to bear in mind however that Ridley Scott's first post-PROMETHEUS project is the considerably less interesting lawyer thriller THE COUNSELOR, meaning we've got a loooooong way to go before things get real. Plenty of time to debate minutia like the above!
