Reuters today posted a news item on a possible “reboot”, as they call it, of Blade Runner.
Any film lover will agree this is pretty exciting, and whilst we’d all love Ridley Scott to make the new stuff it looks like this honour / privilege / responsibility is, perhaps strangely, going to go to the team which put together 2009’s “The Blind Side”. At least this means we are unlikely to see a lack of emotional depth in the Blade Runner “before & / or after” productions, and in a way the emotional isolation & then re-discovery of the characters in The Blind Side could well be said to, in some ways, mirror that of the Deckard / replicant emotional journey / cycle.
Origami at the ready people…
