With the unbridled success of Blade Runner it’s hard to imagine that no sequel was ever made, although the idea has been lying in wait for some time the rumours have always been quashed.
However there is the suggestion that screenwriter Scott Z. Burns might be in the process of writing a script, although that was another rumour dismissed, but Burns himself has been talking about the project, and suggests that his involvement is still very much alive.
“I talked to Ridley about it at one point as a part of a larger conversation about us trying to find something to do together because I have such admiration for him,” explains Burns.
“I’m as huge a fan of that movie as anybody else who would be reading this or watching it, so what I said to him was, ‘Let’s not do that unless we have something amazing to do or to say, because I don’t want to touch that idea unless I really feel like I have something amazing to contribute and right now I don’t know what that is.”
“I think he and I will probably talk again about it,” continues Burns. “But again it’s less about that specifically and more about he and I wanting to make a science fiction movie together.”
“So I hope that that happens, to me I’m not particularly attached to it beingBlade Runner. I suspect by the time we would come up with something it would be its own thing and not attached to that franchise necessarily, because it is a franchise, it’s a great piece of work.”
