Ridley Scott and Hampton Fancher In 'Blade Runner' Sequel Talks

Sam Byford, writing for The Verge:

“The director and screenwriter of sci-fi noir classic Blade Runner are in talks to collaborate on a sequel. Production company Alcon Entertainment has announced that Ridley Scott and Hampton Fancher are developing the idea, which is confirmed to be a new story set ‘some years after’ the original film’s conclusion.”

Blade Runner gets better every time I watch it, which will only heighten my apprehension about a sequel. Here's hoping for a "Godfather II," while dreading a "The Matrix: Reloaded."
