Ridley Scott Confirms Hampton Fancher Writing 'BLADE RUNNER 2'

During an extensive interview with THR about his career and his upcoming film Prometheus Ridley Scott revealed a brief update on the planned Blade Runner sequel/prequel. Ridley confirms that screenwriter Hampton Fancher has be set to start working on the script for the new film. Hampton was one of the original writers on the first film which he adapted Philip K. Dick's short story with David Webb Peoples.

It's important to note that Ridley expects to direct a Prometheus sequel after he completes The Counselor. Blade Runner 2 is likely years away considering the extensive world-building involved with concept artists. The sheer volume of artwork that would be needed to create a setting on either Earth or an off-world colony would be a daunting task.
