Now that he’s finished word on Prometheus, director Ridley Scott is readying for a return to another influential sci-fi universe. Scott tells The Daily Beast that he’s begun meeting with people for a sequel to his influential classic Blade Runner.
“We have a very good take on it,” Scott says, referring to the script by Hampton Fancher. Scott also reveals the sequel will be set “some years” after the original.
Scott also says that he’s looking to shake things up in the Blade Runner universe.
“And we’ll definitely be featuring a female protagonist,” he adds.
