New Blade Runner movies & other media in works!


SO ... MUCH ... WIN. A production company has purchased the rights to Blade Runner and intends to do move movies, perhaps a prequel, a sequel, or both.

IF they can do it right, and treat the source material (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep by the great Philip K. Dick) with respect, then I am down with this. I understand the producers are trying to get Batman director Christopher Nolan - that would be huge.

There is a danger to overdo this with too much material: a tv show that morphs into a CGI cartoon, that morphs into a videogame, that morphs into a lunch box, or a happy meal.

I think the perfect mix is one prequel + one sequel, supported by comic book and novel adaptations, maybe some videogames, plus some high-end collectibles. That's it. No TV Shows, no coloring books.
