?FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCCCCKKKKKK. From the official press release:
Three-time Oscar-nominated director Ridley Scott is set to helm a
follow up to his own ground-breaking 1982 science fiction classic “Blade
Runner” for Warner Bros-based financing and production company Alcon
Entertainment (“The Blind Side,” “The Book of Eli”).
Alcon co-founders and co-Chief Executive Officers Broderick Johnson
and Andrew Kosove will produce with Bud Yorkin and Cynthia Sikes Yorkin,
along with Ridley Scott. Frank Giustra and Tim Gamble, CEO’s of Thunderbird Films, will serve as executive producers.
The filmmakers have not yet revealed whether the theatrical project will be a prequel or sequel to the renowned original.
Alcon and Yorkin recently announced that they are partnering to
produce “Blade Runner” theatrical sequels and prequels, in addition to
all television and interactive productions.
I’m sure you guys would love to hear my fair-minded, even-keeled assessment of this announcement, but I’m afraid I’m a little busy at the moment as I have to go get a shotgun, some ammunition, and the home addresses of Ridley Scott and every single employee of Alcon Entertainment. Thanks to none of you assholes who sent this horrible, heart-breaking tip in.
