BLADE RUNNER Director Ridley Scott Reveals That A Live-Action Series Is In The Works

We've already heard about Noah Hawley's Alien spinoff, but legendary director Ridley Scott has now revealed that a live-action series based on his other seminal sci-fi classic is also in the works.

Ridley Scott's '80s classic, Blade Runner, is widely considered to be one of the best sci-fi movies of all time, and remains just as iconic and influential to this day. Denis Villeneuve's recent sequel proved to be a worthy follow-up, but its underperformance at the box office seemed to scupper plans for more spinoffs set in this bleak, futuristic world.

Or so we thought at the time!

The Blade Runner: Black Lotus anime premiered on Toonami earlier this month, and Scott himself has now announced plans for a new live-action series. Details are few and far between, but the legendary House of Gucci director revealed that work has already been completed on the pilot script and series bible during a recent interview.

"We [have already] written the pilot for Blade Runner and the bible," Scott told BBC Radio (via Variety). "So, we're already presenting Blade Runner as a TV show, the first 10 hours."

Scott also confirmed that Noah Hawley's Alien series is moving forward on FX. Last year, the network's boss John Landgraf described the project as “the first Alien story set on Earth" that will blend "both the timeless horror of the first Alien film with the non-stop action of the second, it’s going to be a scary thrill ride that will blow people back in their seats.”

The prospect of a Blade Runner TV series is very exciting, but it's a shame we know so little about it. Will it pick up the story after the events of 2049? Could Harrison Ford reprise the role of Rick Deckard? Hopefully, some official updates will come our way soon now that Scott has made the news public.
