Ridley Scott Says Blade Runner 2 Script is Ready to Go; No Xenomorphs in Prometheus 2?
Ridley Scott’s got a lot going on right now, and perhaps too much for those eager to see Blade Runner and Prometheus sequels. Scott is still gunning to make both, but right now he’s got Exodus: Gods and Kings making its way towards a December 12th debut and he’s busy casting up for his next film, The Martian, too.
Scott recently revealed hopes to shoot Blade Runner 2 right after The Martian and it seems as though he could pull it off because apparently the script for that one is written and ready to go. Prometheus 2, however, is a different story. That one’s still in the works and there’s a chance that it won’t include any Xenomorphs. Hit the jump for more on both projects.
While talking to Yahoo about Exodus: Gods and Kings, Scott noted that he met with Harrison Ford to discuss Blade Runner 2 just before he hurt his leg on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII:
“We met the night before he had the accident, so I hope I had nothing to do with it.”
Scott also insisted that the Blade Runner 2 script is written and ready to go:
“It’s on the charts. I can’t say when that would be yet, because of [Ford’s] thing with ‘Star Wars’. It’s a sequel – it’s what happens next. It’s quite surprisingly clever.”
