Harrison Ford Impressed With ‘Blade Runner 2’ Script

'Blade Runner 2' Has Best Script Harrison Ford Has Ever Read, Says Ridley Scott

As we all know ‘Alien: Paradise Lost’ is not the only movie franchise that Ridley Scott is returning to.

He is also developing a sequel to his ‘Blade Runner’ movie, which was based on the Philip K. Dick story ‘Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?’

The original starred Harrison Ford in the role of Deckard a Blade Runner who is hired to hunt down a group of androids known as replicants .

Ford will be reprising the role for ‘Blade Runner 2’ and in a recent interview Ridley Scott has revealed that Ford is well impressed with the films script.

“I got Harrison [Ford] back,” Scott said of the cast for the second movie, which will also include Ryan Gosling. “Harrison said, ‘Meh,’ and I said, ‘No, read this.’ And I think he said, ‘This is the best script I’ve ever had.’ We’ve been working on it for a couple of years.”

The new film is set in “2047, roughly,” although that apparently depends on Ford’s co-star. The date, Scott suggested, depends on how “young you can play Ryan Gosling. He’s 34, but he looks 27 when he’s doing his push-ups. So maybe 2050.”

Scott has revealed that Gosling will take over as the lead character after Fords departure.

Scott also resolved one of the loose plot threads from the original film by revealing that Deckard is indeed a replicant, which is something that has long been suspected by hardcore fans of the film.
