For those who were looking forward to Ridley Scott coming back to direct the Blade Runner sequel, I’ve got some bad news for you.

According to Variety, Scott will not be directing Blade Runner 2. It was assumed that the director would be helming, but this was quite the shocker.

There are some good news to come out of this. The director is working on a “strong” three-act storyline with co-screenwriter Hampton Fancher.

“We talked at length about what it could be, and came up with a pretty strong three-act storyline, and it all makes sense in terms of how it relates to the first one,” says Scott.

He says that Ford will indeed appear in the movie as Rick Deckard.

“Harrison is very much part of this one, but really it’s about finding him; he comes in in the third act.”

Well, at least he’ll be directing the second Prometheus film after The Martian. Whether that’s a good thing, I’ll leave it up to you.
