Over the weekend, a report surfaced that actor Harrison Ford was in talks to return as Rick Deckard in the Untitled Blade Runner Project. It seems that is not the case, though, according to producer Andrew A. Kosove, who shot down the report earlier today. Here's what he had to say below.
"It is absolutely patently false that there has been any discussion about Harrison Ford being in Blade Runner. To be clear, what we are trying to do with Ridley (Scott) now is go through the painstaking process of trying to break the back of the story, figure out the direction we're going to take the movie and find a writer to work on it. The casting of the movie could not be further from our minds at this moment."
It still isn't known yet if the Untitled Blade Runner Project will be a prequel or a sequel to the 1982 classic Blade Runner. However, Andrew A. Kosove revealed the story is shaping up much like director Ridley Scott's upcoming sci-fi drama Prometheus.
"It's like asking if we're going to make the sky red or blue, there has been no discussion about it. What Ridley does in Prometheus is a good template for what we're trying to do. He created something that has some association to the original Alien, but lives on its own as a standalone movie."
"In advance of knowing what we're going to do, I supposed you could say yes, he could. But I think it is quite unlikely."
