Alcon Entertainment opened a can of worms when it was announced that the company had acquired the rights to produce prequels and sequels to Blade Runner, Ridley Scott's original cult film, its status remains as one of the most significant & influential sci-fi works in the history of Cinema. Collider recently caught up with Harrison Ford who plays Rick Deckard in the original film, an operative called out of retirement to track down a quartet of replicants consigned to slave labor on remote planets who have escaped to Earth seeking their creator to find a way to extend their short life spans. Ford opened up about the upcoming possible movies or TV shows, and how he thinks they should be handled.
Harrison Ford: "I don’t have any feeling whatsoever. It was an interesting part of my professional life, I’m glad I made that movie, I’m glad that it got released without the hideous voice-over and I don’t know anything about it. I don’t have a judgement about how wise it is to revisit it. I personally think if you’re gonna do… The ambition every time that I’ve been involved in a sequel of a film or a movie that had a number of iterations, I always felt that we were responsible for bringing something new to the characters and to the experience of the audience. If they go into it with the ambition and some very good idea of how to bring something new to it, maybe it’ll be successful. I wouldn’t feel bad if I were not invited to the party, because I would understand they would want fresh blood to be spilled. So there you are. They’re making another Jack Ryan movie and I’m not involved. So that’s the way it is"
