Michael Green is in negotiations to rewrite Alcon Entertainment’s “Blade Runner” sequel, the prod co. announced today.
Hampton Fancher (“Blade Runner,” “The Minus Man,” “The Mighty Quinn”) wrote the first draft.
The film will follow the events of the 1982 film, which director Ridley Scott is back onboard for, with Harrison Ford likely (though there’s no official word on that, yet) reprising cop-bot Rick Deckard.
Green’s best work is in television, where he worked in either a producing or writing capacity on shows like “Smallville”, “Everwood” and “Heroes”; his only film credit is the unfortunate “Green Lantern” movie.
The press release follows :
LOS ANGELES, CA, MAY 31, 2013, 3:30 pm, EST—Writer Michael Green is in negotiations to do a rewrite of Alcon Entertainment’s “Blade Runner” sequel penned by Hampton Fancher (“Blade Runner,” “The Minus Man,” “The Mighty Quinn”) and to be directed by Ridley Scott. Fancher’s original story/screenplay is set some years after the first film concluded.
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.
Green recently completed rewrites on “Robopocalypse” and Warners Bros “Gods and Kings.”
Alcon and Yorkin previously announced that they are partnering to produce “Blade Runner” theatrical sequels and prequels, in addition to all television and interactive productions.
