Ridley Scott, now finishing post-production on Prometheus
, the not-exactly prequel to Alien
) is now planning
"a prequel or a sequel" to Blade Runner
The untitled piece
began planning when Alcon picked up the rights
to Blade Runner
earlier this year. The original film, a modest success
when it was first released in 1982, is now widely admired
. It has since inspired numerous books
about the film, as well as a written sequel
by K.W. Jeter, Philip K. Dick having died before the release of the film.
Bonus trivia: one of the screenwriters of Blade Runner
, David Webb Peoples, wrote the 1998 Kurt Russell film Soldier
, which he considers a "sidequel
" to Blade Runner
-- set in the same universe, but sharing no characters or plot points.
