The fate of a Prometheus sequel is likely being decided as we speak…on Blu-ray shelves nationwide. Ridley Scott‘s return to the Alien universe just came out on Blu-ray after its slightly disappointing U.S box office, grossing just over $126 million. When combined with its international take, though, the film was a moderate hit, grossing just over $400 million. That’s not a number that guarantees a follow up but the movie has generated a ton of discussion and a strong showing in the home market would surely help the sequel’s case immensely.

Scott recently spoke about that potential film and made it sound like a Blade Runner sequel was more certain than a second trip on the Prometheus, saying that the sequel to the 1982 classic was definitely “happening.” Read his quotes after the jump. Read More »

We learned a few weeks ago that Ridley Scott‘s long-awaited Blade Runner sequel would feature a female protagonist, but what of the male protagonist from the first film, Harrison Ford‘s Rick Deckard? Back in February, rumors began flying that the star was in talks to appear, only for Alcon Entertainment to swiftly kill them a few days later. But Scott himself has refused to rule out Ford resurfacing in the new film, though he’s admitted that he wasn’t sure how exactly Ford would fit in.

Now the filmmaker is taking a firmer stance on Ford’s return in a new interview. However, as it doesn’t sound like negotiations are actually underway, it could still just be so much talk. Read Scott’s comments after the jump.

Warner Bros-based Alcon Entertainment (the financing and production company behind The Blind Side and The Book of Eli) are in final discussions to secure film, television and ancillary franchise rights to produce prequels and sequels to Ridley Scott‘s iconic 1982 science-fiction film Blade Runner. Not many details are known about the situation, but we have been told the following:

Alcon’s franchise rights would be all-inclusive, but exclude rights to remake the original. The Company, however, may produce projects based on situations introduced in the original film. The project would be distributed domestically by Warner Bros. International rights are yet to be determined.

So don’t expect to see a remake of the original movie. It is also unclear if they have any screenplay or treatments for possible projects. You might recall that Eagle Eye screenwriters Travis Wright and John Glenn were paid to explore a potential secret sequel from 2003-2005 and wrote several Blade Runner sequel approaches working with Bud Yorkin, who will produce the upcoming Alcon/WB projects.

Update: Henry Jenkins has told me via Twitter that he was referring to Purefold and had missed the update that the project was no longer happening.

As well as being interesting in all the ways you’d think an interview with Steven Lisberger, creator of Tron, would be interesting, a new video chat conducted by Henry Jenkins has a very surprising twist thrown into the mix too. You can see a video of their chat beyond the break – the first part anyway, while the rest resides at Confessions of an Aca Fan. At the 4:23 mark, Jenkins says the following:

I mean, the Scott Brothers are returning to Blade Runner with a new project right now, which is roughly the same vintage.

The same vintage as Tron, he’s saying, in case you got lost. So, what’s this about a new Blade Runner project…?
