Producer says rumors are “absolutely patently false” . . .

Blade Runner 2We hate smug “we told you so” jerks, but can’t resist doing so ourselves.

So here goes: we told you so!

Yesterday we reported on rumors that Harrison Ford was in “early negotiations” to appear in the untitled Blade Runner project Ridley Scott is working on right now and noted that the story is unlikely as Ford hated working on the original movie.

Now comes confirmation from the Blade Runner sequel / rehash / prequel (take your pick) Andrew A. Kosove that the Internet rumors are false.

Here’s what he had 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 (Scott) 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.”

And here’s what he had to say about the movie itself:

“It’s like asking if we’re going to make the sky red or blue, there has been no discussion about it. What Ridley does in Prometheus is a good template for what we’re trying to do. He created something that has some association to the original Alien, but lives on its own as a standalone movie.”

So Ford won’t be appearing at then?

“In advance of knowing what we’re going to do, I supposed you could say yes, he could. But I think it is quite unlikely.”
