We're sorry, but we don't think this is a good idea AT ALL. This move seems all types of sacrilege to us.
On Wednesday, Alcon Entertainment announced that they've almost secured the rights to Blade Runner prequels, sequels, and "other projects."
Here's what Alcon had to say about it in a written statement:
"…This is a major acquisition for our company, and a personal favorite film for both of us. We recognize the responsibility we have to do justice to the memory of the original with any prequel or sequel we produce. We have long-term goals for the franchise, and are exploring multi-platform concepts, not just limiting ourselves to one medium only.”
While there's something cool about exploring the Blade Runner universe further, we're very concerned that this could ruin the integrity of the original.
We'll give you credit if you can prove us otherwise, Alcon, but for now we remain EXTREMELY skeptical.
Do U think they should make more Blade Runner movies?
