Well, that sure was close. Turns out that Harrison Ford/Blade Runner 2 rumor wasn’t true after all. Deadline had a chance to clear the air with Alcon Entertainment, the producer/financier working with Ridley Scott on the upcoming reboot. Andrew Kosove (Alcon big-cheese) had this to say:
“It is absolutely patently false that there has been any discussion about Harrison Ford being in Blade Runner … To be clear, what we are trying to do with Ridley now is go through the painstaking process of trying to break the back of the story, figure out the direction we’re going to take the movie and find a writer to work on it. The casting of the movie could not be further from our minds at this moment.”
Well…Good thing we waited a day to really check our sources, rather than post an article detailing Ford’s return to Blade Runner! You see, here at Cinema Recon, we go the extra mile to make damn, doubly sure every single news story is proven and factual. I mean, what kind of self-respecting journalists would we be if we were to flood the internets with wild rumors and hearsay??
Oh, speaking of journalism, a reliable source has given me super top-secret insider information that Batman dies at the end of The Dark Knight Rises.
