Director Ridley Scott has dropped a mouth-watering hint for sci-fi fans about the recently announced Blade Runner sequel - revealing that he'd like Harrison Ford to feature, but not star.
"I don't think it'll be Harry [starring]," he told The Independent. "But I've got to have him in it somewhere. That'd be amusing."
According to the director, the first meetings about the Blade Runner follow-up took place earlier this month. He has also revealed that its protagonist would be "definitely" be female.
Although Scott's first post-Prometheus effort will be a star-studded adaptation of Cormac McCarthy's The Counselor, speculation is rife that he would follow that with Blade Runner 2.
Scott's original collaborator Hampton Fancher, who adapted the original 1982 film's first screenplay from Philip K Dick's novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? is on board to write the sequel.
