In the original Blade Runner, (robots that are virtually indistinguishable from humans) return illegally to a dystopian Los Angeles, with Harrison Ford’s Rick Deckhard chasing down said replicates.
The filmmakers have not yet revealed whether the theatrical project will be a prequel or sequel. The original film has been singled out as the greatest science-fiction film of all time by a majority of genre publications, and was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally historically, or aesthetically significant”!
Released almost 30 years ago, Blade Runner was nominated for two Academy Awards (Best Visual Effects, and Best Art Direction).
Blade Runner fans, rejoice!
