Blade Runner Sequel A Go

Ridley Scott said in an interview that the Blade Runner sequel is a go and its "damn good" to quote the man himself. The first of course is an iconic film that is perhaps one of the best, if not the best, science fiction movie ever made.

Very loosely based on the Philip K. Dick short story Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, Blade Runner finds Dekker, a police officer, hunting down dangerous androids, who themselves are looking for a way to extend their life spans. Fantastic film.

The sequel picks up years later and stars Harrison Ford in his iconic role. We'll see if he can capture that mood of tough ambivalence that he portrayed before.
