Talk about a huge news item. Christopher Nolan has gone from talented indie filmmaker to blockbuster maker with the reboot of The Dark Knight and it seems he may be given the helm of a remake one of the greatest scifi films ever made.
ReelComix is reporting that Christopher Nolan is in talks with Alcon Entertainment a division of Warner Brothers to direct the sequel to Blade Runner. I am a huge fan of Blade Runner and frankly could not think of a better director to helm the project. If Nolan directs and brings his writing team to the project we could see another great franchise come to life.
As part of Alcon Entertainment taking on the project they are not just planning a sequel but are reportedly also looking to do some prequels. Normally I am against long overdue sequels but I think the material works and a sequel could deliver some long wanted resolution for fans. What are your thoughts on this?
