Just a little more news today regarding the Blade Runner sequel that has director Ridley Scott set to return along with original co-writer Hampton Fancher. Things are still in the “initial meetings” stage, but Scott said he, ” …started my first meetings on the Blade Runner sequel last week. We have a very good take on it. And we’ll definitely be featuring a female protagonist.”
Not a total shocker since the original featured two strong female ch…er…I mean replicants. Additionally, when you look at Scott’s other genre films like Alien, the upcoming Prometheus, as well as G.I. Jane, this is well within Scott’s trademark style of featuring a badass broad.
Before things get rolling on another Tyrell Corporation-induced adventure, however, Scott has The Counselor on his plate starring another tough chick, Angelina Jolie.
