'Blade Runner 3': Ridley Scott Already Has an Idea for a 'Blade Runner 2049' Sequel
From Slashfilm - January 8, 2018

Ridley Scottmay have takena hands-off approach toDenis Villeneuves ambitious critical darlingBlade Runner 2049, but it appears that he wants to tackle another sequel to his seminal sci-fi classicBlade Runner.

The 80-year-old director keeps piling uppotential projects, with news that hes in talks with Disney to adapt the Merlin Sagaand now his somewhat nonchalant statement that hes considering a return to the Blade Runner franchise. Now its just a question of whether Warner Bros. would want to invest in another sequel to the sci-fi series afterBlade Runner 2049 disappointed at the box office.

Perhaps he wants a do-over afterBlade Runner 2049 failed to win over audiences with its thrilling, cerebral story, or perhaps Scott just cant stay away from the franchises he created.
