Have fun noting all the parsed, non-committal words in that headline, but at least it’s vague instead of full of lies. In a talk with the Wall Street Journal, Ridley Scott gave everyone an update on his forthcoming new Blade Runner film that was announced back in August. Apparently the movie is “liable to be a sequel” (my emphasis), but the real news is that Scott believes he’s “close to finding a writer that might be able to help me deliver. We’re quite a long way in, actually.”

Hallelujah. After just finishing his Alien-DNA-swapper Prometheus, he may be ready to roll soon on another project. Some may scoff at the man returning to his previous work to find inspiration, but all it really signals is that a master filmmaker isn’t done with the universes that he created.

That’s reason to get excited. At this rate, we could see a new Alien film one year and a new Blade Runner the next – not from some young music video director (no offense guys), but from the man himself. How can that possibly be bad news?
