EXCLUSIVE! The new poster.

I’ve seen things you wouldn’t believe.

Harrison Ford signing on to a sequel to something he did 30-odd years ago is not one of them. PrisonersDenis Villeneuve will direct.

One of the reasons we’ve never gotten decent Blade Runner toys is that actor likeness rights aren’t included in any licensing deal. If any of the rest of the original cast comes back, maybe we can fix that. I’m not sure much else good can come from this, though having the original co-screenwriter Hampton Fancher aboard is a good sign. But which cut of the movie is it a sequel to? They should shoot like five different versions simultaneously just to please everyone.

Do Bad Nerds Dream of Electric Sequels?
