As if it were 1982 all over again, Harrison Ford is in talks to star in Blade Runner. According to Twitch Film, Ford is in the early stages of discussing the possibility – meaning that it could be a reunion for the movie star of the modern blockbuster with Ridley Scott, the director who’s revisiting his modern blockbusters.
That must mean that Ford and Scott have truly reconciled. Ford publicly stated he disliked the process of making Blade Runner, noting that he fought with Scott and absolutely hated having to go back and do the moronic voice over narration (and rightfully so). Scott on the other hand once responded to a question about the biggest asshat he’d ever worked with by calling up Ford’s name. Good to see them working together again. If the deal gets made.
It’s still a long way until that happens and until the movie gets made. Scott has Prometheus coming out this year, and there is a slate and a half of possible movies and television shows for Scott to dig into next.
With any hope, these two share some ink and take us into the near future in the near future.
