New Blade Runner Film Set Some Years On, Gets Green Lantern Writer

blade-runner-city

Ridley Scott is persisting in developing his Blade Runner follow up with Alcon Entertainment. There’s still a ways to go, mind, as the production is yet to lock in a screenwriter.

According to The Wrap, though, Scott and co. have set their bead on Green Lantern co-writer Michael Green.

All that green but it still only feels like an amber light to me. Proceed with caution.

The same sources who fingered Green are saying that the new story will be set “some years” after the original. Shame, perhaps, that we aren’t getting a prequel because that might have made for an unrealistically futuristic “now.”

I wonder if we’ll actually see the new Blade Runner before the first one becomes an historical period piece?
