Ridley Scott Talks Prometheus and Blade Runner Sequels

Ridley Scott has a line of projects that seems to circle the block. He’s wrapping up Exodus: Gods and Kings, then he’s moving on to The Martian, with Matt Damon, and then he’ll finally be getting around to the films that everyone wants him to make Blade Runner 2 and Prometheus 2.

Scott recently sat down with EW and had a few things to say about each of the upcoming sequels.

First up he discussed Blade Runner:

 “It’s written and it’s damn good,” of course it involves Harrison, who is a survivor after all these years – despite the accident (referring to Ford’s “Star Wars” injury). So yes, that will happen.”

And then of course moved on to Prometheus, which is still a ways away. Scott still has The Martian and Blade Runner 2 to get off his plate.

 “That’s the problem, I’ve got a lot of ducks in a row. But they’re all written.”

I’m nervous about both of these sequels. Ridley Scott is aging and he’s not the director he once was. It’s slightly worrisome. But like every other Blade Runner and Alien/Prometheus fan, I’ll show up in the theater and hope that the films are good. Fingers crossed.
