Now that he’s gone all in on Alien, Ridley Scott is totally bought on the concept of expansive franchises, which may very well be the way forward for Blade Runner. In an interview with IGN, he prompt that, certain, he’d be into the concept of creating extra films in that world after the upcoming Blade Runner 2049. Requested whether or not he’d proceed to develop Blade Runner in the identical trend as Alien, he invoked George Lucas in his response.
Sure. I feel that, you recognize what, George has at all times proved that. After all there’s at all times one thing. George Lucas. You understand, and the best way he’s dealt with Star Wars has been spectacular. It’s what I’ve been attempting to do to actually evolve Alien, as a result of in these days I wasn’t into making sequels, however now out of the blue you understand, “Properly, that’s silly.” I’ll use the phrase “duh” once more, proper? You’d higher get into sequels, duh. In order that’s in a means what I’ve been doing.
Scott’s newfound love of sequels is barely barely disappointing as a result of it appears so consistent with Hollywood’s present desire to turn everything into a universe. He’s solely government producing Blade Runner 2049, leaving directorial duties to Denis Villeneuve. Nevertheless, Villeneuve recently told The Hollywood Reporter that he “felt [Scott’s] presence all the time.”
