Ridley Scott remains bullish on the prospects of a follow-up to his 1982 sci-fi success "Blade Runner" and has Harrison Ford's involvement in mind.
The director and producer has a busy schedule up ahead, with a "Prometheus" sequel to follow this December's epic "Exodus: Of Gods and Kings," while "The Martian" sends Matt Damon into an outer space survival situation with shooting set to begin in November.
A "Blade Runner" sequel still remains in the cards, with Scott telling Entertainment Weekly that "it's written and it's damn good."
"Of course it involves Harrison, who is a survivor after all these years, despite the accident," he joked, interpreted as a reference to Ford's recent leg injury on the set of "Star Wars VII."
"So yes, that will happen."
Also on the team would be Hampton Fancher, who worked with Scott in turning Philip K. Dick's novel "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" into "Blade Runner" in the first place.
But before then: "The Martian." With a November 2015 release date already set, Scott said he was looking to Hungarian capital Budapest for one location, as well as Jordanian valley Wadi Rum, a 720 square kilometer rocky desert wilderness already known as The Valley of the Moon.
