Blade Runner Sequel Gets Green Lantern Writer Michael Green
Green Lantern screenwriter Michael Green is in negotiations to pen the Untitled Blade Runner Project screenplay. We reported last May that original Blade Runner writer Hampton Fancher was writing this follow-up, but it isn't known if Michael Green will re-write his script, or start from scratch.
No details were given regarding the story, except that it will be set several years after the events of Blade Runner. Ridley Scott is directing and, contrary to a report from February 2012, the filmmaker is trying to get Harrison Ford to return as Rick Deckard. The director revealed last May that the story will feature a female protagonist, but that may change now that a different writer is involved. The original classic centered on Deckard, who is tasked with finding and destroying four human clones known as replicants in the year 2019.
